The state of Kansas considers regulated medical waste (medical services waste) as:
Waste should be stored in a container that prevents disease transmission or injury. All reusable containers used to store infectious waste shall be cleaned and disinfected before each use.
Hypodermic needles and syringes, scalpel blades, suture needles, or other sharp objects shall be stored only in a rigid, puncture resistant container that has been closed to prevent the escape of any material, including liquids or aerosols.
