Minnesota's Medical Waste Requirements and Regulations

We care about your business needs and ensure that we are in compliance with Federal and State of Minnesota regulations. Minnesota’s medical waste disposal regulations are managed by the Pollution Control Agency. For further details, review Chapter 7035 on Solid Waste of the Minnesota Adminsitrative Rules along with the defined scope for infectious waste.

Complete details on state requirements can be found by contacting the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. 

Regulated Medical Waste (Infectious Waste) is defined in Minnesota as:

  • Regulated body fluids (blood and blood products and amniotic, cerebrospinal, pericardial, peritoneal, pleural and synovial fluids)
  • Items dripping with those fluids
  • Laboratory waste (waste cultures and stocks)
  • Infected research animal waste
  • Sharps
  • Pathology waste
  • Isolation waste
  • Bandages, dressings, casts, catheters, tubing, and similar disposable items which have been in contact with wounds, burns, anatomical tracts, or surgical incisions and which are suspect of being or have been medically verified as infectious
  • Any other waste, as defined by the state commissioner of health, because of its infectious nature. 

Storage of infectious waste or pathological waste cannot become putrescent at any time. The interior surfaces of storage should be made of easily cleaned materials. Offsite storage areas must be designed to contain spills.

Prominently mark storage area with the international biohazard symbol and with the words "Infectious Waste.”

A regulated infectious waste generator is required to prepare and maintain an Infectious Waste Management Plan, update it at least every 2 years, with a copy kept at the site. The plan should include:

  • Name and address of the generating facility
  • Types of infectious or pathological wastes generated
  • Collection, storage, transport, and disposal methods used for infectious wastes
  • Packaging and labeling of infectious wastes
  • Transporters and disposal facilities used for infectious wastes
  • BBP exposure control plan, or the steps you have taken to minimize potential employee exposure
  • Name of the individual responsible for implementation of the management plan
  • Amount of infectious and pathological waste generated in the previous two years
  • See guidance document link above for other specific requirements.

Do not submit a copy of the plan to the MPCA except in response to an explicit request. The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) no longer reviews plans or issues acknowledgment cards.
