Last modified: 7/29/2014 7:41 AM

Medical Waste Management logoThe Medical Waste Management Act (Act), adopted by the state legislature in 1990, requires the management of medical wastes. This program includes permitting, registration and inspection of sites such as hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, biotech facilities, clinics and offices that generate large quantities of medical waste. Registration is also required of all small quantity medical waste generators. The program reviews medical waste management plans during inspections, provides assistance and information to the public and industry, and investigates all medical waste complaints.
