What is Potentially Infectious Medical Waste?

The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency defines potentially infectious medical waste (PIMW) as: “waste generated in connection with the diagnosis, treatment, or immunization of human beings or animals; research pertaining to the provision of medical services; or the provision or testing of biologicals. … All PIMW must be treated to eliminate the infectious potential, and sharps must be treated and either made unrecognizable or packaged properly prior to disposal. PIMW can only be transported by a licensed PIMW hauler to a permitted transfer, storage, or treatment facility. Once PIMW has been treated and the sharps have been packaged properly, it can be placed in a landfill.“

The Largest Employers in Springfield
