Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in New Hampshire
Quaint towns sprinkled amongst rolling pastures and farms, framed by the White Mountains. Peaceful lakes, beautiful beaches and tax-free shopping make New Hampshire one of New England’s lil’ gems.
Whether you explore the “Live Free or Die” state by foot, on wheels or by rail, there’s a lot to do and see! Get behind the wheel for a breathtaking drive on the Mount Washington Auto Road or hit “The Kanc” also known as the Kancamagus Highway, for the postcard-perfect scenery. The stunning White Mountain National Forest is home to Mount Washington, popular with hikers and skiers, and nature lovers come to explore the caves in The Lost River Reservation. The epicenter of the forest sits in Franconia Notch State Park which is great for fishing, hiking and cycling, and is home to Flume Gorge and the “Old Man of the Mountain” also known as the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway.
New Hampshire is family-friendly with amusement parks like Story Land, Whales Tale Water Park and Santa’s Village, and between Thanksgiving and Christmas you can even take the “Polar Express” via the Conway Railroad. In winter the Attitash Mountain Resort has more than 350 acres of skiable slopes suitable for beginners and pros, a zipline ride from Bear Summit to the base and 2,800-foot mountain coaster for the brave. Want to meet the locals? Squam Lakes is home to the Chamberlain Reynolds Memorial Forest full of amazing hiking trails with sightings of local mountain lions, moose and black bears, and the capital Concord is famed for its lobster rolls, steamed clams, fish fry and cider donuts.
While fresh produce is one of New Hampshire’s biggest exports, healthcare is actually the second biggest industry in the “Granite State,” with biotech, pharmacology and medical research companies establishing headquarters due to the state’s low tax rates and award winning research hospitals like Dartmouth-Hitchcock. A booming healthcare and biotech sector presents the issues of medical and biohazardous waste streams. In the state of New Hampshire, medical waste is part of a broader category of infectious waste, regulated by OSHA and the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services, which defines infectious waste as “any waste that may cause or significantly contribute to an increase in mortality or an increase in serious irreversible or incapacitating reversible illness, or pose a substantial present or potential hazard to human health or the environment when improperly treated, stored, transported, disposed of or otherwise managed .” This infectious waste can include human blood and blood products, pathological wastes, sharps, cultures and stocks of infectious agents and lab waste.
Storage of infectious waste must adhere to the following rules:
Clearly labeled with the words “Infectious Waste,” or “Biohazard Waste,” or featuring the biohazard symbol
Waste cannot be stored at room temperature for more than 72 hours
All waste packaging must be spill and leak-proof
Medical waste must be treated prior to disposal, however New Hampshire doesn’t require medical waste transporters to carry manifests or special licensing, but instead outlines that haulers must adhere to federal Department of Transportation’s hazardous materials regulations.
