Biohazardous Waste Disposal Procedure

Biohazardous waste consists of:

1. Materials containing human blood, human blood products, human tissue, and/or human body fluids released by accident
2. Other potentially infectious material (microbial cultures, biologics, etc.) released by accident

"Potentially infectious" or "Biohazardous" waste must be handled in a specific manner by trained individuals.
There are two (2) Mercer University departments that are properly equipped and trained
