What Types of Regulated Medical Waste Are Accepted?
Bio-hazardous Waste – Medical waste is generally defined as any solid waste that is generated in the diagnosis, treatment, research, production or testing of biologicals for humans or animals. Any object and materials contaminated with blood and body fluids containing disease-causing micro-organisms or viruses.

Sharps – Means any object contaminated with a pathogen or that may be contaminated with a pathogen through handling or during transportation; and capable of cutting or penetrating skin or packaged material.
Pro-Disposal Medical Waste Services will help you properly and safely manage your sharps. We specialize in the compliant removal, treatment and disposal of your full sharp’s containers. Sharps management is one of the most important safety controls within the healthcare community. It helps reduce the risk of exposure to needle sticks, cuts, or punctures from sharps. When the container is ¾ full, seal it and we will pick it up with the rest of your bio-hazard waste. Sharps must be placed in an approved sharps container. The sealed container can be placed into the medical waste box that is lined with a red bag.
Trace Chemotherapy Waste – Such waste includes, but is not limited to, mask, gloves, gowns, empty IV tubing bags and vials, and other contaminated materials. This waste must be classified as “empty” which means such quantity that is not subject to other federal/state waste management regulations prior to being handled as biomedical waste (residue not to exceed 3% of total volume). This material should be place in a “yellow” sharps container.
Pro-Disposal Medical Waste Services can help you with the collection and disposal of your trace chemotherapy waste. We provide you with a safe and easy way to dispose of this waste in accordance with state and federal regulations. A container that held a U-listed substance is considered “RCRA empty” when there is less than 3% of the former volume left. If the applicable criteria are met, then this waste can be considered trace chemotherapy waste and can be managed as regulated medical waste and disposed of in yellow containers. Pro-Disposal will be happy to advise and work with you to ensure your facility is compliant with regulations applicable to the disposal of trace chemotherapy waste generated by your business.
Pharmaceutical Waste – Non-RCRA Pharmaceutical Waste or Non-Hazardous Pharmaceutical waste can include unused medications, over the counter care products, and sometimes accessories such as sharps, unused test strips, etc. The Environmental Protection Agency under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) mandates the proper disposal of any drug that meets the criteria for being a hazardous waste. Other pharmaceuticals that are not currently regulated under RCRA are called non-RCRA hazardous pharmaceuticals.
