Ohio EPA defines Infectious Waste as:
Storage areas must be clearly labelled with a sign that states “Warning: Infectious Waste” and/or the Biohazard symbol or be locked. Outside storage areas must be locked
While there is no time limit on storage, generators must maintain the integrity of packaging, keep the waste in a non-putrescent state, and ensure protection from animals.
Generators of LESS than 50 lbs per month are classified as Small Quantity Generators.
Generators of MORE than 50 lbs per month are classified as Large Quantity Generators. If MORE than 50 lbs of infectious waste is generated in any calendar month, facilities must register with the Ohio EPA and obtain a certificate of registration to become a Large Quantity Generator.
Generators must identify and separate infectious waste at the point of generation.
Generators are required to quantify their waste generation rate by keeping separate records of weight in pounds on a calendar month basis. Stericycle shipping papers will NOT contain this information.
