Classifications of Waste

Infectious waste is considered a “special waste,” that has unique handling, transportation, or disposal requirements to assure protection of the environment and the public health, welfare and safety. Infectious waste means a limited class of substances that carry a probable risk of transmitting disease to humans.

Types of Wastes

  • Microbiological laboratory wastes
  • Pathological wastes
  • Contaminated disposable equipment, instruments and utensils
  • Human blood and blood products
  • Used sharps
  • Contaminated animal carcasses, body parts and bedding, especially those intentionally exposed to pathogens in research.

Storage Requirements

No person who stores special waste shall store the waste for longer than 90 days from the date the waste is placed in storage awaiting transportation, processing or final disposal unless otherwise approved by the department, except no person other than the generator shall store infectious waste for over seven days without refrigeration or at below 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
