Order Biohazardous Waste Containers

Biohazardous waste must be covered, closed, or sealed when stored (BMBL 5th addition, 29 CFR 1910.1030). If your laboratory’s biohazardous waste is being stored in EHS-provided biohazardous waste boxes, ensure they are closed when waste is not actively being added. Order Stericyle Flip Top Safety Lid for 18x18 box, product #2463BL.

As an alternative, purchase biohazardous waste containers with lids. Biohazardous waste sealed in the liner can be transferred before pick-up to the EHS-provided boxes. This requirement has been added to the 2020 inspection checklist.

Contact your EHS safety representative to learn more about purchasing biohazardous waste containers.
