NEWS AND INFORMATION
  • Impacts of Assembly Bill (AB) 333 on the Medical Waste Management Program
    On September 25, 2014, Assembly Bill 333 (AB 333) was signed by the Governor. AB 333 amends multiple sections of the Medical Waste Management Act (MWMA). As of January 1, 2015, medical waste facilities are required to notify Alameda County DEH of their participation in temporary medical-waste generating events, such as flu clinics, health fairs, and veteran stand down events. Additionally, DEH will no longer issue Limited Quantity Hauling Exemptions (LQHE). A Small Quantity Generator (SQG), Large Quantity Generator (LQG) or parent organization that employs health care professionals who generate medical waste may transport in limited quantities up to 35.2 pounds of medical wastes to the central location of accumulation under the Materials of Trade Exemption contained in Section 173.6 of Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations. There is no requirement to register with DEH for the Materials of Trade Exemption. However, facilities are still required to register as a Small Quantity or Large Quantity Medical Waste Generator.
