- Regulated waste; sometimes called biomedical, biohazardous or infectious waste, includes:
- Blood, or OPIMs
Dressings, towels or other items that a bloodborne pathogen might be on
- We have two types of containers for regulated waste.
- A laundry basket
For items to be washed
A garbage basket
For items to be disposed of
- Both have the biohazard symbol on them (above).
- REMEMBER! Use proper PPE every time you handle these wastes.
