Medical facilities generating biomedical waste are required to register with the DEP. Facilities will receive a non-transferrable, generator (shipper) registration number.
Registration fees are shown below:
Generators of LESS than 50 pounds of regulated medical waste per month are classified as Small Quantity Generators. Registration, rules, and regulations still need to be followed.
A written Biomedical Waste Management Plan (BWMP) is required for your facility and must include the following:
The plan must be made available for an inspection by Maine DEP. Your facility may be exempt if less than 50 pounds of waste per month is generated, but you must still file your registration and follow all other required rules and regulations.
