Medical and Biohazardous Waste Disposal in New York State


New York State is home to more than 19 million people, and more than half live in the world-famous New York City, or the ‘Big Apple’ as it is affectionately known. 

The rest occupy other areas of the expansive state, which ranks fourth largest by area in the country, such as Buffalo-Niagara Falls, Rochester, Albany and the Capital District, Syracuse, Utica-Rome, Bingham, Kingston, Glens Falls and Watertown-Fort Drum. New York State is also famous for housing impressive and world-renowned landmarks, architecture and tourist attractions, including one of the seven wonders of the world: Niagara Falls. Every year more than 60 million tourists from around the world flock to the New York City to get a glimpse of The Statue of Liberty, scale the Empire State Building, take a stroll through Central Park and visit the iconic Times Square.


A lesser known fact about New York State is the first ever hospital in the United States of America, was opened there. The hospital was situated on Liberty Island, where the Statue of Liberty now proudly stands and was thought to have been in operation as early as 1902. More than a century later, New York State now has close to 200 hospitals, as well as clinical labs, aged care facilities, veterinary clinics, ivy league colleges and research facilities, all generating medical and or biohazardous waste. The medical and biohazardous waste disposal regulations for New York State are managed by the New York Department of Environmental Conservation or (DEC). Under these regulations, facilities must dispose of their waste using the following processes:

  • Autoclave (our preference where possible, more green!) 

  • Incineration (mandatory for hazardous and pharmaceutical waste) 

  • Chemical disinfection

  • Electro-thermal or steam-thermal inactivation 

Additionally, in New York State, the generator of the waste is responsible for the proper packaging, labeling and documentation of that waste, for it to be transported off-site and disposed of.

Waste Classification

New York State has monitored the collection and transport of Medical waste since 1988. Under the revised definition, materials which have come into contact with small quantities of body fluids such as blood, are not considered RMW unless completely saturated to the point of dripping. Therefore, items such as bandages and gauze pads which are tinged with blood (or other body fluids) may now be placed in the general commercial waste stream.

Storage Requirements

All RMW must be stored in an area designated and clearly labelled with the word ‘biohazard’ or the universal biohazard symbol. It must be contained in an area properly ventilated, separated from other solid wastes, sealed to eliminate risk of discharge, and situated in a non-public location only accessible by authorized personnel.
