Where To Properly Dispose Of Biohazardous Waste?

Biohazardous medical waste which includes blood, body fluid, bloody feces, needles/sharps, and other related items need to be disposed of at an incinerator or autoclave. In San Diego, there are no incinerators, so all biohazardous waste must be autoclaved.

Transporting Hazardous Waste Requires A License

To transport to an autoclave for disposal, an CDPH biohazardous medical waste transporter license is required.

Therefore it is against the law to transport hazardous waste for disposal on your own unless you’re licensed and instead you should contact a licensed professional to dispose of biohazardous waste or materials.
