Wisconsin or America’s ‘Dairyland’ takes its milk and cheese seriously, as home to more dairy cows than any other state in America. Wisconsin is an indigenous word, from the Native American Chippewa language, translating to “grassy place” in English. An appropriate namesake, given Wisconsin is famous for its lush green pastures and undulating hills, both of which make it perfect country for grazing dairy cows.
There are more than 1.3 million dairy cows in the state, spread across 9,000 farms, most of which are family owned and operated. These farms produce over 14% of America’s milk, and 25% of the country’s cheese. However, dairy farming isn’t all Wisconsin is known for. It’s also referred to as the Badger State, this nickname was inspired by miners in the 1800s that dug tunnels into the hills or lived underground (just like badgers) in the mines during the winter months to stay warm. If you want to go one step above college football, you can head over to Lambeau Field in Green Bay for a Packers game.
Although Wisconsin is a mass producer of one of the most commonly recognized medicinal plants in the world, ginseng, it also has a thriving medical community and exceptional healthcare facilities. In fact, Wisconsin has some of the best hospitals in the country. The renowned University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison, is a popular teaching hospital, and has been ranked nationally in 9 adult specialties and 6 pediatric specialties by U.S News. Like every US state, Wisconsin produces biohazardous and medical waste, with the disposal of this waste managed by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The department has outlined complex regulations that dictate that containers for these kinds of waste streams must be removed and emptied at least every 90 days, and that biohazardous and medical waste generators must keep records of their original waste manifest and treatment certification for up to 5 years.
Complying with such stringent regulations can be difficult for healthcare facilities and that’s where we come in. Daniels is a safe and reliable cradle to grave waste management solutions provider, serving Wisconsin and America.
Wisconsin Infectious Waste Regulations
According to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, infectious waste is waste that can pass on infectious diseases to humans or animals via sharps (including hypodermic needles, syringes and lancets), blood or human tissue. Medical waste is infectious waste as well as any non-infectious waste that may be commingled.
In s. 287.07(7)(c)1.c., Wis. Stats., Infectious waste means solid waste that contains pathogens with sufficient virulence and in sufficient quantity that exposure of a susceptible human or animal to the solid waste could cause the human or animal to contract an infectious disease.
In s. 299.51(1)(b), Wis. Stats., Medical waste means infectious waste, as defined above, and other waste that contains or may be mixed with infectious waste.
It is noted in the departmental outline, that medical waste does not include all of the waste produced within a healthcare setting. Non-infectious materials from a healthcare facility are considered to be "medical waste" only if the generator mixes them with infectious waste or manages them as though they are infectious waste. Any other waste materials from a healthcare facility are not considered "medical waste" under Wisconsin law. If possible, these non-infectious items should be reused or recycled.
