Texas Medical Waste Regulatory Authority and Jurisdiction

We take care of your business needs and make sure they comply with federal and Texas regulations. Texas Medical Waste is regulated by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). For more information on the state medical waste treatment requirements, see Rules 326.1 to 326.89 in the Texas Administrative Code.

Texas defines Regulated Medical Waste in 5 categories:

  1. Waste from animals that have been intentionally exposed to pathogens
  2. Bulk blood, bulk human blood products, and bulk human body fluids
  3. Microbiological waste
  4. Pathological waste
  5. Sharps

Regulated medical waste should be stored in a safe manner and place to protect it from theft, vandalism, accidental human or animal exposure, rain, wind and water. The storage location should not provide a breeding ground for pests and should not give off an unpleasant odor.
Producers can only deliver waste to TCEQ registered shipping companies.

The generator must receive a signed receipt for each shipment of medical waste, unless it is shipped via the United States Postal Service.
For untreated medical waste, a record of shipping receipts must be retained for 3 years from the date of shipment. These receipts are subject to review and TCEQ should be available without notice during normal business hours.

Texas Regulated Medical Waste Management Practices

  • Disposing of Sharps, Syringes, and Other Related Waste
    • Recommendations for safe disposal of household generated sharps and syringes
    • Requirements for management and disposal of sharps generated from a dentist’s office, doctor’s office, acupuncture clinic, or other health care-related facility
    • Management and disposal of used or expired pharmaceutical waste

Sharps generated from a health care-related facility as defined in 25 TAC 1.136(a)(5) the TCEQ must be managed as medical waste. Options for managing such waste include:

Transport the waste yourself to a licensed medical waste treatment facility. A registered medical waste carrier will arrange to collect the waste for transport to a licensed processing and disposal facility. Garbage will be mailed to authorized facilities via the United States Postal Service.

Disposal of waste onsite by following the onsite processing reporting procedures on the Information page about medical waste generators. Use one of the treatment methods pre-approved by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Rules 25 TAC 1.136 (a) (5). End alternative therapies approved by TCEQ or DSHS. Sharp letters can be encapsulated in a hard matrix-eg, plaster works well-sealed, labeled and then placed in a container that is disposed of with regular trash.

  • Hazardous Pharmaceutical Wastes— Manage as hazardous waste any pharmaceutical wastes that are listed as hazardous by EPA under Title 40, Code of Federal Regulations, Section 261.33 ( 40 CFR 261.33Exit the TCEQ) or that include ingredients that may cause the medication to show the toxicity characteristic under 40 CFR.
  • Nonhazardous Pharmaceutical Wastes—Manage as special waste any pharmaceutical waste that is harmless under Title 30, Chapter 330 of the Texas Administrative Law. In addition, Title 30, Chapter 326 of the Texas Administrative Law does not specifically address the disposal of harmless pharmaceutical waste. Although  not required, TCEQ recommends that the medical facility contact a licensed medical waste treatment facility for  treatment and disposal procedures and a landfill for  disposal procedures.
  • Reverse Distribution Program—If your pharmaceutical company offers a reverse distribution program, you can return your pharmaceutical waste to the manufacturer.
