Newsletter Article – VIII, 1; March 2016: Biohazardous Waste in the Research Labs RMW, Sharps, and Liquid Wastes

Biohazardous Waste in the Research Labs Regulated Medical Waste, Sharps and Liquid Wastes
Research at Tufts University generates Medical and Biological Waste, or Regulated Medical Waste (RMW), and is regulated by the state of Massachusetts and handled by our RMW vendor. The objective of medical and biological waste regulations is to mandate the treatment of all potentially infectious materials and thereby minimize the risk of infection and injury from the mishandling of these wastes to staff, students, solid waste handlers and the public.
