Biomedical Waste Generators
Environmental Health Services inspects, permits and investigates any complaints
associated with facilities that generate biomedical waste or dispose of the
waste improperly. Some examples of biomedical waste generators are hospitals,
doctor's offices, dentists & clinics. Facilities who generate over 25 pounds
of waste per month are inspected yearly for compliance with Florida
Administrative Codes. Small generators (less than 25 pounds) are inspected
every three years and must apply for an exemption from the permit fee.
