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. However, despite the fact that New Jersey is the fourth smallest American state by area, it has a lot to offer.
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.
Atlantic City is a popular tourist destination for beaches, boardwalks, and entertainment venues, casinos as well as the annual Miss America competition. The famous Atlantic City Boardwalk was built in 1870, and gives residents and tourists access to fishing boats, cruises, kayalking, and surfing.
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.
Daniels Health is here to provide biohazardous and medical waste management solutions for all waste streams to the state of New Jersey.
We help our clients navigate New Jersey’s biohazardous and medical 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.
