Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Oregon

 

Oregon's claim to fame is America's highest quality hazelnuts - grown in soil enriched by a temperate ocean, mountain and river climate; it also boasts one of the most thoughtfully urban planned cities in the world - Portland. Despite its nutty notoreity however, it’s the state’s natural beauty that truly sets it apart. Oregon is located on the West Coast, and is one of the most geographically diverse states in the country, boasting many bodies of water, volcanoes, forests, deserts and grasslands. 

 

Oregon is also home to the deepest river gorge in North America, Hell’s Canyon, which is over 8,000 feet deep and a popular spot for white water rafting. Klamath County is famous for Crater Lake National Park. Crater Lake the US’s deepest lake formed from the remains of an ancient volcano and is well regarded for its stunning blue water surrounded by the Cascade Mountain Range. In contrast to its natural beauty and geographical offerings, Oregon’s capital city of Portland, also affectionately called the “City of Roses,” is one of the best examples of urban planning in the world. Portland has prioritized street level over skyline, which has led to it being a city renowned for its tree lined streets, abundant parks and green spaces.

The focus in Portland is around livability and sustainability, this approach is a statewide attitude and extends beyond urban planning in Portland and into Oregon’s healthcare system. A multi-year study by Portland State University in 2016 found that Oregon’s innovative approach to healthcare, which involves investing in primary care has saved the state and America more than $240 million. The state also aims to be pragmatic in the handling, treatment and disposal of biohazardous and medical waste, which is managed by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality. The regulatory framework in Oregon is complex and specifies if the medical waste generator produces more than 50 pounds of waste in any given calendar month, all pathological waste, biological waste, cultures and stocks should be treated and disposed of within 7 days of generation. The only exceptions to this are if the waste has been refrigerated between 33 and 48 degrees Fahrenheit, or frozen at less than 32 degrees Fahrenheit.
