Connecticut Medical Waste Requirements and Regulations

We care about your business needs and make sure that we are in compliance with Federal and State of Connecticut regulations. Connecticut’s medical waste disposal regulations are managed by the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP). Solid Waste Management regulations can be found under Section 22a-209 of the Connecticut General Statutes Title 22A, Environmental Protection, and accessed here.

The State of Connecticut has a guidance document for biomedical waste and a Biomedical Waste Tracking Form. Complete details on state requirements can be found by contacting the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP).

A Biomedical Waste Management Plan (BWMP) containing policies and procedures for handling biomedical waste is required from all generators.

Medical waste must be stored in a manner so as to protect it from the elements and animal exposure. Avoid mixing with other materials and limit access to authorized personnel. Areas used for storage of biomedical waste should be constructed of finished, impermeable materials, and waste must be kept in a non-putrescent state. Outdoor storage areas such as dumpsters, sheds, or trailers must be locked.

Biomedical waste may be refrigerated.

A sign displaying the universal biohazard symbol and/or the words “BIOHAZARD” must be posted wherever biomedical waste is stored.
