Each state has published regulations for the handling and disposal of medical waste. Some states have posted specific COVID-19 guidance. Use our Regulated Medical Waste Tool to check on the rules in your state.
The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) has established a web page where we are posting solid waste and recycling guidance relative to COVID 19 issues. MassDEP will continue to update this page as new policies and guidance are developed. This page also includes links to other MassDEP and Massachusetts guidance relative to COVID 19.
