Medical Waste Disposal is mostly regulated and controlled by state agencies in the USA, but now, even the federal agencies have taken the matter into their hands. No wonder, they have come up with lots of local laws relating medical wastes.

In many such cases, people usually get confused about the elements which are to be classified under medical wastes and the ones which are not.

But for your assistance on this, you always have the proficient waste management organizations to offer you the exact information. For instance, if you need any info relating waste disposal in Winston Salem, you can always seek the assistance of a good waste disposal agency in the local vicinity.

Here are some really interesting products, with their description about whether to classify/not to classify them under medical wastes:

  • E-Cigarettes:

The cartridges of E-cigarettes could contain some flavored nicotine solution. After this is used, the user normally tosses it in a regular waste bin.

However, if you believe the researches, the cartridges could still contain nicotine portions,which pose threat to the animals and environment. Sometimes, even the children may get infected due to this, if they find the cartridges astray.

Thus, e-cigarette cartridges are always categorized under hazardous wastes.

  • Nicotine Patches:

In case of nicotine patches, things could have differential aspects.

If the patch is opened, but not used, the patch and the wrapper could be considered hazardous wastes. However, when the patch is used after opening, this is no more a hazardous waste.

  • Feminine Hygiene Products:

The hygiene products used by females too are under constant debate of whether to consider them hazardous or non-hazardous after their use.

Most of them might consider them unsafe to be dumped with regular products due to the fear of blood-borne pathogens etc. associated with them.

However, as per OSHA, these sanitary napkins contain special absorbent materials which soak all liquids. Due to this, even after its usage, the sanitary napkins may not be considered a hazardous medical waste.

  • Food Products:

You might never consider this but a couple of airports in Orlando consider the unconsumed scraps of food as medical wastes. As of this, the food cannot be simply tossed into regular waste containers with other kinds of garbage.

In fact, the garbage is treated efficiently since it falls under two jurisdictions:

  • USDA- The US Department Of Agriculture
  • CBP- The Custom And Border Protection

Thus, food products may not be considered safe to be dropped in a regular trash container, unless you are acquainted with the regulations of a region.
