Missouri Medical Waste Requirements and Regulations

We care about your business needs and ensure that we are in compliance with Federal and State of Missouri regulations.

Complete details on state requirements can be found by contacting the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Division of Environmental Quality (DEQ) Solid Waste Management Program and the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS).

Missouri defines Regulated Medical Waste (Infectious Medical Waste) as:

  • Isolation wastes
  • Contaminated surgical, dialysis and laboratory wastes generated by surgery, dialysis and laboratory departments in the process of caring for patients who have communicable diseases which are capable of being transmitted to others via those wastes
  • Cultures and stocks
  • Blood and blood products
  • Pathology wastes
  • Animal carcasses, body parts and bedding from animals contaminated with infectious agents capable of being transmitted to a human host
  • Sharps including hypodermic needles, syringes and scalpel blades.  Broken glass or other sharp items that have come into contact with material considered infectious are also included.

For storage, Missouri requires that waste must be stored in a secure manner and location for protection from theft, weather elements, and inadvertent human or animal exposure. It must be managed so no noxious odours will be generated and will not be a breeding place.
