Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Arkansas
Snuggled in the south, it’s easy to see how the “Natural State” got its name. Embrace lake life at Ouachita State Park, relax at the Hot Springs National Park, see the state’s tallest mountain in Mount Magazine Park, hike Cedar Falls or travel back in time on the Arkansas Heritage Trails. While Arkansas may not be the first state that comes to mind as a top tourist destination, its abundant unique sites and experiences make it a diamond in the rough.
The Crater Diamond State Park has a simple door policy “finders, keepers ,” which attracts treasure hunters from all over to become a diamond miner for a day, or you can venture underground to explore a subterranean world of twisting caves, stalagmites, stalactites and lakes in the Ozark Mountain region. Get a bird’s eye view of the Buffalo River from Hawksbill Crag, popular for canoeing and rafting, or go kayaking, fishing for catfish or both at Bayou Bartholomew, the world’s longest bayou.
Take a “Billgrimage” to the Clinton Presidential Center and have your picture taken at the Oval Office or go ghost hunting at the Crescent Hotel and Spa in Eureka Springs, the most haunted hotel in the US. Did you know Arkansas is wine country? Visit the tiny town of Altus, where you’ll find the “Château Aux Arc Winery” with the biggest chardonnay vineyard outside of California; and regardless of where you are, grab a slice of the state’s iconic “Possum Pie.” Like many southern states, Arkansas’ main industry is agriculture in addition to manufacturing and biotech. The majority of bioscience companies in Arkansas are small research and test labs involved in agriculture-related bioscience, and they also have a growing biomedical base.
Where there are research labs there is medical and biohazardous waste, this waste is regulated by the Arkansas Department of Health, which stipulates:
All bags and containers used must be correctly labeled and sealed
Used sharps must be stored in rigid, leak-proof containers
The name of the facility which generated the medical waste must appear on all containers and bags
No medical or biohazardous waste can remain at the facility it was generated in for more than 30 days once the container has been filled and closed
Untreated medical waste cannot be disposed of in landfill
Treated medical waste via an approved method such as incineration or autoclaving can be disposed of in a permitted sanitary landfill facility in accordance with the Arkansas “Solid Waste Management Code”
