Michigan Medical Waste Requirements and Regulations

We care about your business needs and ensure that we are in compliance with all Federal and State of Michigan regulations. Michigan’s medical waste disposal regulations are managed by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the Michigan Medical Waste Regulatory Act (MWRA). To see guidance documents and Michigan’s medical waste disposal regulations, visit the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality here .

A written Medical Waste Management Plan is required for your facility. For a sample Medical Waste Management Plan, please refer to the Department of Environmental Quality here .
