How to pack Biohazard and Medical waste box in North Carolina


All North Carolina Healthcare facility’s that generate Biohazard waste are responsible for preparing the red biohazard bag waste for pickup. Commonly called “packaging” medical biohazard waste. Proper packaging begins with ensuring appropriate setup, proper types of red bags, and acceptable disposal of items in the red biohazard bag, such as Biohazard, Medical and Sharps container waste.



5 Easy "Steps" to help with the packing of your biohazard Medical waste in North Carolina.

Packing instructions in general for most Regulated Medical Waste fall within DOT rules, but things do change. Check with DOT Department Of Transportation and in addition any local State Rules & Regulations in North Carolina for packing and transporting medical waste. Here are general guidelines and should not be considered the most up to date rules. Contact us for more information in North Carolina for your Healthcare facility and Biohazard Waste packaging.


  1. Set-up your Biohazard Medical waste container.

Using a standard 30 gallon corrugated biohazard box. Turnover and seal the bottom flaps with 2-inch wide, clear, packing tape Top and bottom are distinguished by the printed arrows and text on the box. If you are using a reusable Biohazard tub, no setup is required.

  1. Line your North Carolina Biohazard Medical waste container with the red bio-bag.

Use a red biohazard bag to line the inside of your container, with the 4 sides overlapping the container’s outer sides. Be sure to comply with all state-specific requirements for thickness of the red bio-hazard bags and be sure not to exceed the weight limitations of the container.

  1. Dispose of only Biohazard Medical waste in the red bag.

 Don’t place medications, loose needles or other sharps, trash, recycling; trace chemotherapy, or pathological waste in the red medical waste bag. Do place sealed puncture-resistant, disposable sharps containers in the red bag. Identify pathological waste or trace chemotherapy waste for incineration and also package it separately from other red bag waste that is not destined for incineration.

  1. Gather, twist, and tie the red Biohazard-bag.

While wearing proper PPE -gloves mask and eye protections gather the 4 edges of the red bag from the sides of the container. Twist the top of the bag to seal its contents. Secure the seal with a strong, hand-tied single or goose-neck knot to prevent any leakage if inverted. You can also use a zip tie or 2” packing tape to secure the knot. Ensure that the bag is completely closed.

  1. Seal your North Carolina Biohazard Medical waste container.

For corrugated Biohazard boxes, seal the top of the box with the 2-inch wide, clear packing tape. For reusable container, secure the lid, and engage all closures and locking.
