 Local  Enforcement Agency

The Monterey County Health Department is the local enforcement agency responsible for administering the State’s Medical Waste Management Program in Monterey County. The program oversees registration requirements for small and large quantity medical water generators and conducts annual inspection of large quantity generators and facilities with onsite treatment.

Encouraging proper containment and disposal

The program also encourages, through public education and awareness, proper containment and disposal of home-generated sharps such as needles, lancets, and syringes. As home-generated sharps can pose a unique public health threat when improperly contained and disposed such as in a garbage container or recycle bin, the public is advised to use sharps containers for containment and approved locations for safe disposal. Please refer to the article Sharps/Medications Disposal.

 Register as a Medical Waste Generator
