Medical Waste Transporter Registrations

Transporters of medical waste may need to register. This page provides forms, rules, guidance, and other information about medical waste transportation.

Generators of greater than 50 pounds of untreated medical waste who intend to self-transport and transporters of other generators' untreated medical waste must obtain a registration. Click on the sections below for more information about each topic.

  • September 30: Registrations expire each year. Submit a renewal annually using the annual summary report form (see forms above) to keep a medical waste transporter registration active.
