WHO REGULATES MEDICAL WASTE?
Medical waste is mostly regulated by state environmental and health departments, which is why checking with your state’s specific regulations is important. The DOT (Department of Transportation) regulates how RMW (regulated medical waste) travels on U.S roads. The United States Postal Service regulates how RMW is shipped through the mail. OSHA regulates the handling of medical waste by employees in a workplace. Find out more by visiting the EPA’s website https://www.epa.gov/rcra/medical-waste#who%20regulates%20medical%20waste.
WHAT HAPPENS TO MEDICAL WASTE ONCE IT LEAVES A FACILITY?
Medical waste has to be treated prior to finding its final disposal location. There are several sanitizing treatments used. Thermal treatment, steam sterilization (such as autoclaving), electropyrolysis and chemical mechanical systems are all effective ways of treating medical waste. Once treated, it becomes “solid waste” and eventually ends up in a landfill.
