Commonly Asked Questions about Medical Waste Disposal
Medical waste is a subset of wastes produced at hospitals, dental practices, blood banks and collection services, medical research facilities, mortuary and autopsy centers, physician’s offices, laboratories and research centers, veterinary hospitals/clinics, nursing homes for the elderly, and other health care facilities. These wastes may be infected by blood, body fluids or other potentially infectious materials.
There are health risks and negative environmental impact if disposal won’t be done properly. Health risks may involve sharps-inflicted injuries, radiation and chemical burns, thermal injuries, and toxic exposure to pharmaceutical products and substances like dioxins or mercury. The release of pathogens and toxic pollutants affect the environment which may potentially contaminate the water. Incineration of heavy metals or materials with high metal content can lead to the spread of toxic metals in the environment is another example of risk.
Wastes and by-products include different types of materials, as the following list illustrates:
- Infectious waste
- Pathological waste
- Chemical waste
- Pharmaceutical waste
- Cytotoxic waste
- Radioactive waste
In Texas, self-transport by a generator is possible. Small Quantity Generators (SQGs) with 50 pounds or less per month of untreated medical waste may transport their own medical waste without being subject to the transporter requirements specified in 30 TAC 326.31 (b). However, if you belong to the Large Quantity Generators (LQGs) group that generates more than 50 pounds of untreated wastes, you are subject to comply with the registration rule as stated in 30 TAC 326.53. Both SQGs and LQGs must keep the required documentations, containing information required by 30 TAC 326.53 (b)(8),(9), and (10).
If you’re interested to go with the self-transport option, you can visit this link now to register or you can partner with Hill Country Medical Waste to save you the effort and time of going through the same registration process that we already did. We have been serving many healthcare facilities as one of the active waste transporters in Texas.
Hazardous waste is a waste (including liquids, solids, gases, and sludges) with properties that can harm public health and environment. These wastes are dangerous and normally generated from many places, from industrial manufacturing process to batteries.
A waste is considered hazardous if it’s listed in one of the 4 lists below:
- F-list – Wastes that are common from manufacturing and industrial processes
- K-list – Wastes must match one of the descriptions stated in CFR and come from one of the 13 categories on the list
- P-list and U-list – Wastes from discarded commercial chemical products
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also established four primary characteristics: (T) Toxicity, (R) Reactivity, (I) Ignitability, and (C) Corrosivity.
Both human health and environment are impacted if people are careless in managing hazardous wastes. Some of the potential health risks of hazardous waste are cancer, birth defects, genetic mutations, physical deformations, and physiological malfunctions like reproductive impairment and kidney failure. Hazardous waste can kill organisms in a lake or river, destroy plants and animals, too. Chronic toxicity happens if people or environment are exposed to hazardous substances for a long time.
You can set up and do the waste transportation of your facility’s hazardous wastes as long as you are registered and compliant to both EPA and United States Department of Transportation hazardous materials regulations. If you need to resolve your disposal issues right now, you can outsource this from an authorized company.
