Maryland Medical Waste Requirements and Regulations

We care about your business needs and ensure that we are in compliance with applicable Federal and State of Maryland regulations. Medical waste disposal regulations are managed by the Maryland Department of Environment and the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Complete details on state requirements can be found here

The information presented herein is applicable for Small Quantity Generators (shippers) of less than 50 pounds of Regulated Medical Waste per month. Generators (shippers) in excess of that amount have additional requirements for compliance. Please refer to the link for further guidance.

Waste that can become putrified that is not refrigerated, frozen, or treated on-site may be stored on-site for a maximum of 30 days. Non-putrescible sharps containers and trace chemo waste may be stored for up to 90 days.

Generators are required to develop and implement an onsite Medical Waste Management Plan. This plan should:

  • Identify the types of medical waste generated and where each type of medical waste is generated in the facility
  • Describe how each type of medical waste will be identified, segregated, packaged, stored, treated, transported and disposed
  • Include a contingency plan for responding to spills or loss of containment of medical waste in order to minimize hazards to human health and the environment
  • Identify medical waste training that will be provided to employees
    Be maintained onsite and updated whenever changes related to medical waste generation or handling occur
