San Diego County Medical Waste Guidelines


MEDICAL WASTE INSPECTION GUIDELINES (SAN DIEGO COUNTY)




Pharmaceutical Waste Management


  • Charcoal-Based Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal Products
    • Pharmaceutical waste generated in California must be treated by incineration, or by an alternative treatment technology that has received approval from the Department. The technologies on the Department’s alternative medical waste treatment technologies list are the only alternative treatments approved for use in California. None of the charcoal-based products currently in use have gained this approval, so they must be disposed of in a pharmaceutical waste container. Do not place pharmaceuticals mixed with these products into the solid waste.

Home Generated Sharps In San Diego


Home-generated sharps waste is defined as hypodermic needles, pen needles, intravenous needles, acupuncture needles, lancets and other devices that are used to penetrate skin. As of September 1, 2008, California State Law prohibits the disposal of home-generated sharps into any container used for the trash, recycling or green waste.

California's Acupuncturist Registration Requirements


A Small Quantity Generator (SQG) is a medical waste generator, other than a trauma scene waste practitioner, that generates less than 200 pounds per month of medical waste. Acupuncture needles are considered medical waste, therefore acupuncturists or acupuncture clinics are subject to all of the requirements under Chapter 4 of the Medical Waste Management Act (MWMA), Health and Safety Code (HSC) sections 117915 through 117946 (p.22-28), including an annual generator fee of $25. In addition, used acupuncture needles cannot be disposed of in solid waste or be transported by a generator to a household hazardous waste facility. Used needles must be picked up by a registered medical waste hauler, treated onsite by an approved treatment technology or be sent for treatment through a mail back program. A list of approved treatment technologies and a list of medical waste haulers can both be found on the Program page.




How to Dispose of Controlled Substances


Pharmaceutical wastes classified by the DEA as “controlled substances” must be disposed of in compliance with DEA requirements. The Department recommends the following process to make controlled substance waste nonretrievable. Pills containing a controlled substance are crushed before placing the residue into a pharmaceutical waste container. Controlled substance that is remaining in a syringe is wasted into a pharmaceutical waste container before disposing of the syringe in a sharps container. Expired medications should be returned through a reverse distributor. Under no circumstances should any waste medication – including controlled substance waste – be disposed of down the drain or into solid or biohazardous waste.




California's Small Quantity Generator Registration Fee


A Small Quantity Generator (SQG) is a medical waste generator, other than a trauma scene waste practitioner, that generates less than 200 pounds per month of medical waste. Medical waste includes, but is not limited to: sharps, biohazardous and pharmaceutical waste. If you recently received a letter from the Medical Waste Management Program regarding a fee of $25, it is because your facility's name was either on a medical waste transporters' customer list or a medical licensing list. You also may have been billed by your transporter on behalf of the Department, but now the Department is billing all SQGs that were previously billed by the transporter. As a generator of medical waste, you are subject to all of the requirements under Chapter 4 of the Medical Waste Management Act (MWMA), Health and Safety Code (HSC) sections 117915 through 117946 (p.22-28), including an annual generator fee.
