Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in New Jersey

It may be small, but the state of New Jersey is the birthplace of many famous Americans and is home to the tourist destination, Atlantic City. The little state of New Jersey is located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the Northeastern United States. It is actually a peninsula, and shares a north and east border with its rival: the state of New York. 


Something that may come as a surprise is New Jersey’s claim to the Statue of Liberty. The statue is located on Ellis Island, which belongs to both New York and New Jersey, depending on which part of the island you’re standing on. In fact, most of the 27 acres of Ellis Island belong to New Jersey, including a whole viewing area for the statue. New Jersey is also the birthplace of many famous faces. Actors and actresses such as Meryl Streep, John Travolta, Joe Pesci, Danny DeVito, Michael Douglas and Chelsea Handler are all New Jerseyans. The E Street Band, fronted by legendary American singer and songwriter Bruce Springsteen, also originated from the Garden State.

New Jersey has a history of doing things in its own unique way. Not surprising then, is the fact that the state has just passed a bill to become the second American state with an individual health insurance mandate. The bill aims to elevate current healthcare access and affordability for the state’s 9 million residents. One thing this bill won’t do, however, is eliminate the biohazardous and medical waste, which is produced by all of New Jersey’s medical and healthcare facilities.

Medical Waste Disposal Guidelines in New Jersey 


From Lambert Castle in Paterson, or the Newark Museum to the Colgate clock in Jersey City- we've got you covered. We help our clients navigate New Jersey’s medical and biohazardous waste regulations, which are managed by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, Solid and Hazardous Waste Management. The regulations in New Jersey are complicated and stipulate that all medical waste generators must register with the state. Additionally, they cannot store regulated medical waste (RMW) for longer than 1 year, and must retain a copy of disposal documents for at least 3 years from the date that the waste was accepted by the initial transporter. 

Segregation requirements are found under NJAC 7:26-3A.10(b) and state that such waste must be segregated into:

  • Sharps Waste (Classes 4 and 7, meaning used and unused, respectively) including sharps containing residual fluid
  • Fluids (quantities greater than 20 cm³)
  • Other regulated medical waste

Each of these classes of RMW are required to be treated (to kill pathogens or disease-causing organisms) and destroyed (ground or minced into small unrecognizable pieces) prior to disposal at an authorized solid waste management facility. 

Storage Requirements

New Jersey state requirements mandate:

  • All medical waste generators must register with the state (more info here)
  • A generator may not store RMW for longer than one year.
  • A generator must retain a copy of each tracking form for at least three years from the date the waste was accepted by the initial transporter unless the Department specifically requires an additional retention period.
