Alabama Medical Waste Disposal

A little about Alabama and Alabama Medical Waste Disposal.

“I think there’s just one kind of folks. Folks.” So wrote Harper Lee in her book, To Kill a Mockingbird, an apt description of everyday people and Alabamians. Alabama has been the scene of many compelling and important American stories, and the 22nd State in the Union has a resonant history of culture, music, food and community.Among well-known writers either from Alabama or with strong Alabama connections are Booker T. Washington, Zora Neale Hurtson, Helen Keller, Harper Lee, Truman Capote and Fannie Flagg. These and many other Alabamians have shared their skills, their knowledge, their stories and their lives to give the world a taste of Sweet Home Alabama.Musical traditions shared within African communities and within Scots-Irish communities, who arrived in Alabama during the 19th century, grew rich and durable over the years, embedded in religious worship, communal labor and social entertainment. As communities changed during the 20th century, community festivals and the heritage of musical traditions continue to root Alabamians in their social identities and experiences. History is strong in Alabama.Alabama has been the site of many important events in the civil rights movement in America, including protests and bombings, and pivotal stands and marches against segregation and racial prejudice. In Birmingham in 1997, attorney Jim Rotch wrote the Birmingham Pledge, a statement of principles to eliminate racism and prejudice. Since then, the pledge and its grassroots communities of teaching and programs have evolved into an international fellowship of multiracial individuals who increase an appreciation for diversity and inclusion for humanity.The first recorded Mardi Gras festival happened not in New Orleans, but in Mobile, Alabama in 1699. After the Civil War, the Mobile Mardi Gras festivities and krewe parades have been rocking the city on the days leading up to Fat Tuesday yearly since 1866. Colored beads thrown from floats are scanty fare in Mobile, where toys, candies and the local ice cream treat, the Moon Pie, are given away to thousands of spectators.Alabama BBQ cooks are patiently and persistently committed to keeping this delicious southern tradition alive. Barbecue is one of those working class traditions that integrates all of the folk of Alabama. It is possible to follow a BBQ trail through Alabama and literally eat your way through the state. And don’t forget to tuck in a little local peach pie after all that savory goodness.

Alabama Medical Waste Disposal

The Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) recognizes that Alabama is blessed with a wealth and variety of natural resources, which provide significant social, economic, and environmental benefits and opportunities for the citizens of Alabama. Their mission is to assure for all citizens of the State a safe, healthful, and productive environment.

Their medical waste program is where medical waste generators register with ADEM and medical waste transporters and processors are issued permits. The Alabama Solid Wastes and Recyclable Materials Management Act, Code of Alabama 1975, Section 22-27-1, et seq. 335-17, comprises all the regulations of ADEM dealing with medical waste management.

Alabama Medical Waste Disposal; when a solid waste, or combination of solid wastes, because of infectious characteristics, may either cause, or significantly contribute to, an increase in mortality or an increase in serious irreversible or incapacitating reversible illness, or pose a substantial present hazard or potential hazard to human health or the environment when improperly treated, stored, transported, disposed, or otherwise managed, then it is a type of solid waste that falls under the protection and regulation of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in Alabama.

Medical waste is defined as anything that is potentially pathogenic or infectious (i.e. could carry or transmit disease). Examples of medical waste include:

  • Blood and other bodily fluids
  • Blood – soaked bandages, compresses, etc.
  • Tissues, such as organs or biopsy samples
  • Used and unused hypodermic needles from the injection of insulin or other prescribed drugs
  • Tattoo and body piercing needles

Alabama medical waste disposal at some point requires medical waste storage, this is defined by the regulatory authorities in Alabama as the containment of medical waste at the generating facility, or some alternative place, for a temporary or extended period of time, at the end of which time the waste is treated or stored elsewhere. Placing waste in a container at the point of generation such as a patient’s room, operating room, or laboratory would not be considered as storage.

A professional Alabama medical waste disposal company will advise you on regulations and best practices for safely gathering, storing and segregating medical and biohazard waste. Does your medical waste storage plan include the types of waste handled, the storage procedures that will be followed, the treatment facilities that will be utilized, and what steps will be taken to minimize exposure to employees from untreated medical waste? Local regulations for the transportation, treatment and disposal of medical waste are equally important and stringent, and your medical waste disposal company will hold itself to the same standards that we will advise you to hold yourself to. Understand what is required, make checklists for training and compliance with the standards for packaging, labeling, storage, treatment, transportation, and disposal of medical waste.

MedPro Disposal offers biohazard and medical waste disposal guidance and services throughout Alabama, including in Birmingham, Montgomery, Mobile, Madison, Dothan, Huntsville, Tuscaloosa, Hoover, Auburn and Decatur.
