EHS Biohazardous (Medical) Waste Disposal

The U-M Department of Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) collects and processes the biological waste generated at U-M. Lab directors (faculty/lab managers/supervisors) must follow the EHS protocols for proper disposal of biological waste to help reduce costs, ensure regulatory compliance, maintain a safe workplace, and protect the environment.

This webpage contains EHS Standard Operating Procedures, Guidelines, and Manuals for a variety of biological waste materials, including:

  • Solids
  • Liquids
  • Sharps
  • Pathological
  • Uncontaminated waste
