WHAT IS BIOMEDICAL WASTE?
Updated: Mar 24
BIOMEDICAL WASTE INCLUDES
Biomedical waste includes, but is not limited to, the regulatory classification of waste that consists of used needles (sharps), laboratory waste, biologically contaminated disposal material, equipment and instruments, empty drug vials, trace-contaminated Chemotherapy waste, and blood and/or body fluid biohazardous affected material. Texas Administrative Code (30 TAC 330.3) refers to this waste type as “regulated medical waste.”
The Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR 173.134) and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) uses “regulated medical waste” and “special waste from health care-related facilities” respectively to label biomedical waste.
