DEC provides technical assistance to many
generators on proper management
and disposal of medical waste.

Regulated medical waste (RMW) is material generated in research, production and testing of biologicals or health care such as:

  • Infectious animal waste
  • Human pathological waste
  • Human blood and blood products
  • Needles and syringes (sharps)
  • Cultures and stocks (microbiological materials)
  • Other biohazard waste (e.g. materials contaminated with infectious agents such as the Ebola virus - see Ebola Waste Disposal Fact Sheet [PDF], 38 KB)

What Institutions are Regulated?

Examples of regulated institutions include: hospitals, clinical laboratories, veterinarians, funeral homes, nursing homes, home health providers, physicians offices, research laboratories, pharmaceutical companies, colleges and universities (including basic medical or clinical microbiology laboratories), blood banks, company infirmaries, correctional facilities and waste management companies.

Proper Treatment and Disposal

Treatment and disposal of regulated medical waste requires a permit.

RMW must be properly treated to destroy disease-causing organisms prior to disposal at an authorized solid waste management facility.

Treatment includes autoclaving, incineration, or alternative treatment technologies (e.g., microwave, chemical disinfection etc.) or other methods that meet New York State's performance standards. In addition,sharps must be destroyed prior to disposal.

Treated RMW may be disposed (if accompanied by a certificate of treatment form) at an authorized solid waste management facility.

Required Reports and Forms

All regulated institutions must complete the Medical Waste Tracking Form (PDF) (19 KB).
