    Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Waste Removal in Tompkins County, New York

    Is my company required to register as a regulated medical waste generator?

    No, medical waste generators do not need to register with any agency; however, it is your responsibility to ensure any infectious waste is properly transported off­site. New York biohazardous waste generators are also required to complete a Medical Waste Tracking Form, which Advowaste will assist you with.

    What kind of documentation should my company keep on file concerning its medical waste disposal?

    Regulated medical waste generators must store all of their Medical Waste Tracking Forms for at least three years. These forms may be examined by the New York Department of Health and the Department of Environmental Consideration. It is recommended that generator companies create an annual report on their medical waste disposal operations, but it does not need to be submitted to any agency.

    If my company’s medical waste in untreated, does it need to be placed in red bags and labelled?

    Yes. Red bags must be impermeable so that they cannot tear and leak infectious waste. Additionally, the bag must state the word “biohazard” or have a picture of the universal biohazard symbol. Advowaste provides all guidance on how to properly handle untreated medical waste.

    What information should be included on red bags?

    The New York Department of Environmental Consideration requires that medical facilities include the generator facility name and address on primary containers. Secondary containers must also include the transporter's name and permit number, the date of shipment and identification of the medical waste contents.

    Can I reuse my biomedical waste containers?

    Disposable containers such as rigid cardboard should be disposed of with the medical waste it contains. Reusable containers may be treated to use again as long as there are is no irreparable damage. They can be treated using a chemical disinfectant approved by the EPA or using an approved non­chemical method such as steam
