According to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), regulated medical waste does not simply include a blood saturated product. It includes any item contaminated by any bodily fluid that has been used during a medical or laboratory procedure.
Examples of any item:
All regulated medical waste must be removed at least every 30 days. Legal destruction can only be certified by a medical waste manifest on file in each office generating such waste. Failing to comply with your state's regulations can result in large fines, suspension and/or a closure and loss of business license.
