Ohio Environmental Protection Agency RMW Regulations:
Ohio's medical waste production, storage, and treatment is regulated by the Ohio EPA. Although the medical waste laws are more lenient than Michigan's, they still have important rules to note:
Ohio EPA recommends all infectious wastes be sent to a commercial treatment facility. The preferable treatment method of RMW in Ohio is by autoclave. We are partnered with a commercial autoclaving facility to treat all of our Ohio Medical Waste.
Small generators are facilities who produce less than 50 pounds of RMW per month. Small generators are still required to maintain a monthly generation log of the amount of infectious waste generated each calendar month.
Storage requirements: The integrity of the container must be maintained. There are no time limits regarding infectious waste storage, however, infectious waste must remain in a non-putrescent state using refrigeration or freezing when necessary. Infectious waste must also be maintained in a manner that prevents it from becoming a food source or breeding ground to animals or insects. Infectious waste storage areas must be marked with a sign that states "warning: infectious waste" and/or displays the international biohazard symbol or lock the storage area.
