Expertise in New York
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.
The state of New York requires that medical waste generators producing regulated medical waste comply with the Medical Waste Tracking Act. What does that mean for you? It means knowing how these guidelines apply to healthcare related facilities from clinical laboratories to hospitals, to veterinary services to funeral homes.
Hazardous waste regulations are overseen by the state’s Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). This agency implements the regulations of the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Because it is an authorized agency, the DEC also enforces and adopts guidelines for regulations, permits, and data processing regarding hazardous waste management throughout the state.
Finding the information
In New York, regulations are not hard to find. For example, hazardous waste management practices, from regulations to guidance to manifest programs, permits, and compliance are easily accessible through their DEC.
Hazardous waste regulations of the state can also be found under New York’s Codes, Rules and Regulations Title 6 - (6 NYCRR) and its counterparts of EPA regulations found in the Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR).
New York defines solid waste as hazardous if it displays any characteristics of activity, toxicity, ignitability, or corrosively. More details can be found under 6NYCRR 371.3
For detailed information to ensure compliance, carefully review Title 6 NYCRR, Parts 371 (Hazardous Waste Manifest System) through 373, and 376 for clarification.
About waste generator status
New York defines waste generators status based on the quantity of waste generated and stored on-site. Their categories range from a conditionally exempt small quantity generator (generating no more than 220 pounds of hazardous waste and no more than 2.2 pounds of acute hazardous waste, up to large quantity generators, who generate more than 2,200 pounds of hazardous waste or more than 2.2 pounds of acute hazardous waste in a calendar month.
Large quantity generators can store hazardous waste on-site for up to 90 days, while a small quantity generator may store non-acute hazardous waste on-site for up to 180 days.
Hazardous waste manifest forms are required based on generator status. The New York DEC also provides a link to the EPA for information regarding the hazardous waste manifest system that includes information on state requirements and access to appropriate forms.
Compliance is vital when it comes to medical, hazardous, and industrial waste management. Non-compliance can result in excessive fines and penalties as well as loss of reputation.
