Regulated Medical Waste
Step 1: Line Container with Red Liner
Line your regulated medical waste container with the liner supplied to you by your medical waste transporter. Make sure that all sharps are in appropriate sharps containers PRIOR to being placed into the container.The sharps container should be sealed to ensure that sharps will not escape during handling and transport. Sharps are any items that can puncture the liner and container.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU CAREFULLY MANAGE YOUR SHARPS WASTE!
Step 2: Tie Liner when Container is Full
Be sure the liner is secure before closing the container. The seal should be secure enough to contain theregulated medical waste if the bag of regulated medical waste were held upside down. A gooseneck witha single knot or a zip tie is preferred. Please make certain that the liner is secure and will contain all regulated medical waste contents.
Florida Generators: Please ensure your liner is marked with your generator information.
Step 3: Container Must Be Properly Sealed
The container must be properly sealed. Your container should be closed to ensure containment. Make sure the regulated medical waste is secure for transport.
Step 4: Place Barcode Label on Container
Place your bar-coded label on the container identifying you as the generator of the regulated medical waste.The label should include your name, address, phone, and generator identification number (if applicable). It is the bar-coded label provided to you. Please only use one per container.
