Ohio Medical Waste Disposal
Ohio has set lower standards for small infectious waste generators who generate less than 50 pounds a month.
Ohio Medical Waste Disposal. Each small generator of infectious waste less than fifty pounds in any one month (one generator) shall do the following:
At the point of waste generation, identify and separate non-infectious from infectious waste to determine whether the generator must follow large generator rules.
Place sharps wastes in a “sharps” container.
Before they are disposed of, treat all cultures and specimen cultures generated on the premises to make them noninfectious by any method, technique, or practice prescribed by rule 3745-27-32 of the Administrative Code; or
Before disposing of the waste, treat it to make it noninfectious at one of the following: A facility that holds a license issued under Ohio Revised Code Section 3745.2732, a facility that is authorized by rule 3745-27-32 of the Administrative Code, a facility that is in compliance with state and federal regulations, or a facility in another state that operates in accordance with those regulations.
Under the Revised Code, the generator of treated cultures and viable infectious agent cultures on the premises does not have to be considered a treatment facility. Such treated cultures may be transported and disposed of in the same manner as solid wastes and do not have to comply with the disposal paper described in rule 3745-27-33 of the Administrative Code.
Keep records of the quantity of waste generated on the premises every month in pounds. The generator shall keep records documenting the monthly quantity of waste generated on the property or business. When requested by the local health board or its authorized representative, the generator must provide information on the rate of infectious waste production, which may then be quantified and recorded. A log showing the amount of infectious waste generated on the premises during each month shall be maintained.
Record by month the amount of infectious waste produced. If fifty pounds or more of infectious waste is produced in a single month, the Ohio environmental protection agency shall be notified in accordance with the Administrative Code. Generator certificates shall not include emergency vehicles or public safety vehicles and shall only be used at the site where they are generated.
Ohio Medical Waste Disposal. A generator of infectious waste weighing 50 pounds or more must meet these Ohio Standards.
Ohio Medical Waste Disposal. At the point of generation, infectious wastes should be segregated from other wastes. At the very least, infectious wastes should be contained in their own containers, from other wastes.
Place sharp infectious wastes into an FDA cleared sharps container.
Do not grind or compact any sharp infectious wastes prior to having been treated in accordance with the Administrative Code. Do not grind or compact any other kinds of infectious wastes prior to having been treated in accordance with the Administrative Code.
Utilize a solid waste disposal facility that has been licensed under the Revised Code to handle infectious wastes after they have been processed to make them non-infectious by either:
The non-infectious waste generated at a facility owned or operated by the generator is treated using the methods, techniques, or practices prescribed by the Administrative Code.
Designating the wastes for treatment at an infectious waste treatment facility that holds a license issued under Ohio Revised Code or at a facility that holds a license to handle infectious wastes to the extent that treating those wastes is in accordance with that permit and its terms and conditions prior to disposal. In addition, facilities in other states operating in accordance with state and federal regulations.
Describe the major components of infectious wastes, any method of treatment that renders them noninfectious, and the generator’s process for distinguishing between waste containers that contain treated and untreated wastes to persons to whom the generator has entered into an arrangement to treat or dispose of the wastes upon receiving a written request.
To comply with the requirements of rule 3745-27-33 of the Administrative Code, all treated infectious wastes that are transported off the premises where they are generated must be accompanied by a disposal paper that meets the requirements.
