San Francisco Medical Waste Regulations

California medical waste disposal is regulated by the California Department of Public Health, Medical Waste Management Program of San Francisco, and federal regulations.

We understand the importance of compliance with the California Medical Waste Management Act. With regulations that differ depending on the classification of waste generated, it can be hard to keep up.

That’s where we come in.

We are California’s medical waste experts who understand the regulations around generating, handling, collecting, transporting, and disposing of medical waste.

We are happy to offer audits to any San Francisco healthcare facility where we will perform a walkthrough of your facilities and ensure you are operating with compliance. We even perform waste audits where we can lower the amount of regulated medical waste your facility generates and lower the price you pay per medical waste pickup.

All biohazardous medical waste should be stored in a designated accumulation area which is secured and labeled with a biohazard warning sign legible from at least 25 feet in both English and Spanish as detailed in the MWMA.

Sharps waste disposal: Must go into a rigid and puncture proof sharps container. This container should be sealable and labeled clearly with ‘sharps waste” or with the word and symbol “BIOHAZARD.” Sharps containers should not be filled past the 3/4ths full line. Once full and completely sealed, these containers can be placed inside of your biohazard bin alongside your other biohazardous waste.

Biohazardous waste and pathological waste: Must go into a red bag (no more than 3 pounds) which is tied to prevent potential leakage and placed inside of an approved and lined biohazard container. In the state of California, pathology and biohazard waste should be segregated and their respective container should be properly labeled as “Pathology waste” or “BIOHAZARD” depending on the type of waste.

Pharmaceutical Waste: If non-hazardous, must go into a non hazardous pharmaceutical container which is labeled as “INCINERATION ONLY.” These containers should be secured to protect the contents from unauthorized users.
