The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the federal authority which
regulates waste nationwide. In Florida, the state authority that supervises the
EPA's regulation is the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP).
Applicable statues in Florida include Florida Statues (FS) Chapters 381 and Chapter 403,
Florida Administrative Codes (FAC) Chapters 17-712 and Chapter 10D-104, Rules of the
Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), and Rules of the Department of Health (DOH).
DOH regulates the identification, packaging, storage and treatment of biohazardous
waste at the generating facility. A fine of $2,500 per day per violation is authorized
by law and may be levied against violators during an enforcement action.
The improper handling and/or disposal of medical waste can pose serious
health risks to the generator and everyone in the community. Medical waste
or "sharps" are objects such as needles, syringes, lancets and other
sharp objects used for medical purposes. EPA, OSHA, and Florida state
regulations require that medical waste be properly handled, treated, and
disposed of by a licensed medical waste disposal company.
Every year, biomedical waste (potentially infectious materials such as
needles, blood products, etc.) is disposed of improperly, placing sanitary
workers as well as the general public at risk for contracting dangerous
diseases. Needles and other medical waste may be contaminated with Hepatitis,
HIV, AIDS, and other infectious diseases that can cause severe illness or
even death. The Florida Legislature has passed laws to regulate the
healthcare industry and any businesses that have needles to discard or
produce biomedical waste.
