It’s all Regulated Medical Waste in the State of CT, a nd needs to be managed as such (sharps container, proper waste vendor such as Steric ycle)-  if empty.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Syringe Disposal

Hi All,

We use syringes to deliver solvents. Some of the syringes have needles, some d o not. None contain any biohazardous substance, but the solvents would be hazardous waste if disposed of.

*For syringes without needles, if they are empty when disposed of, can we consid er each syringe to be a RCRA empty container and throw them in the regular tra sh?

*What about empty, non-biohazardous syringes with needles?

I have done a little searching on this issue, but have not come up with definitive guidance.

Thank you

Mark Williams
