Hazardous Waste Management
Expertise in Mississippi

MCF Environmental Services have been serving medical clinics, laboratories, education institutions and local businesses for more than 30 years, offering specialist waste collection and disposal services for hazardous and non-hazardous waste streams.

If you are a generator of medical or hazardous waste in Mississippi (whether a private or government enterprise), you must be aware of the state governances that regulate both waste streams and the responsibilities that fall on you as a waste generator. Let’s start with healthcare facilities.

The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) regulates the management of medical waste, which includes on-site storage and disposal, and provides a simple medical waste fact sheet to outline information on the transportation, management and disposal of infectious medical waste. As discussed in this fact sheet, the proper transportation, management and disposal of infectious medical waste in Mississippi is regulated under the general provisions of the Mississippi Solid Waste Law and the Mississippi Nonhazardous Solid Waste Management Regulations.

Mississippi defines infectious waste and medical waste slightly differently.

  • Infectious Waste is known as, “patient care waste, cultures and stocks, blood and blood products, pathological waste including tissue and body parts, and discarded sharps”.
  • Medical waste is defined as all waste generated in direct patient care or in diagnostic or research areas that is “non-infectious but aesthetically repugnant if found in the environment” is considered medical, but not infectious waste.

For hazardous waste disposal, The Mississippi Hazardous Waste Management Program coordinates with the EPA to regulate hazardous waste generation, transportation, storage, treatment, and disposal. The MDEQ requires all transporters of hazardous waste to store, treat and dispose of the waste utilizing methods that ensure the protection of public health and the environment.

As a trusted and specialized hazardous waste management company, our team at MCF take great pride in helping Mississippi clinics and local businesses navigate the complexities of regulated waste disposal into a program that is simple to understand and ensures the highest levels of compliance and environmental responsibility are met. From the get go, we will ensure you have everything you need – guidance on waste accumulation and storage, labels, containers + bags for compliant waste collection, a customized waste pickup schedule and dedicated driver, and manifests, reporting and training that ensure your facility meets the requirements of Mississippi’s Department of Environmental Quality.
