Tennessee Biohazardous Waste Regulations
Where there are healthcare services there is biohazardous and medical waste. Tennessee’s medical waste disposal regulations are enforced by the TDEC (Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation) division of solid and hazardous waste management, and the federal OSHA program managed by the Department of Labor and Workforce Development.
All Tennessean waste generators are required to apply to the state’s Commissioner for a waste evaluation and must fulfil the following requirements:
- Obtain approval from the Division of SWM (Special Waste Management) before processing or disposing of any waste
- Locate a processing facility or landfill that accepts medical waste
- Submit a complete Waste Evaluation Fee worksheet application in conjunction with a Special Waste Data Collection form

Boxes are SO out, Safe containers are SO in!
The new “little black dress” of medical waste is safe clinically designed containers
Whether you’re in Nashville, Chattanooga, Clarksville, Knoxville, or Memphis, there is simply no valid excuse to be using a cardboard box for medical waste – it is not safe for staff or patients. Infectious wastes present a contamination risk, and leakage is common for cardboard boxes and unsealed containers, there is a new way! Daniels safety containers for medical waste, chemotherapy waste, pharmaceutical waste and medical sharps are designed with clinicians to ensure they capture the needs of healthcare environments. Speak to Daniels about the future of medical waste management.

Let's Talk about Tennessee
Tennessee is home to over 6.5 million people, ranking among the Top 10 destinations in the US. It gave birth to the Blues, Country and Soul music and forged the beginnings of Rock’n’Roll. Memphis, Tennessee’s largest city, sits on the Mississippi River and is a true musical hub that is famed for W.C Handy, “father of the blues” and the “King of Rock” Elvis Presley, calling home. Music fans flock each year to pay tribute to the King at his Graceland estate, and visit Sun Studios where he, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and Jerry Lee Lewis all recorded their groundbreaking records.
Bristol is recognized as the “Birthplace of Country Music” and, nestled in the Appalachian Mountains, is skirted by the beautiful Holston River. By day, world-class fishing and mountain biking occupies weekend trippers, and by night, State Street hums with live music accompanied by some of the best burgers and Memphis BBQ in the southern states. Want more of the great outdoors? Visit Chattanooga, home of the underground Ruby Falls and Cherokee National Forest. Hike the Audubon Acres, climb up and zip down Lookout Mountain remembering to grab a MoonPie at the bottom (best washed down with an RC Cola) - this iconic combination joined forces in the 50s and go together like peanut butter and jelly. For the Smoky Mountains visit Pigeon Forge, and a trip to Dollywood is a must. Find your beat at the Rhythm and Blues music festival in Knoxville or see where Jack lives, by taking a tour of the most famous whisky distillery in Lynchburg on your way to the state’s capital, Nashville. If you're curious to learn about the rich civil war history of the area, Murfreesboro is home to museums and historical landmarks like Stones River Cemetery, where over 6,000 Union soldiers are buried.
Nashville is truly a mecca for music lovers; every year thousands of fans flock to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Grand Ole Opry, and the Ryman Auditorium, or kick off their summer beat with the CMA Music festival, a 4-day event starring the hottest country music artists. However, beyond music, more than 400 professional services firms specializing in healthcare call the famed “Music City” home. Healthcare represents a quarter of all total occupations in the area.
