If you own or manage a funeral home, managing the regulated medical and hazardous waste streams produced by your work can be a complex and confusing process. You are probably quite clear on when your responsibility for that waste begins – the moment it is produced. However, a point that often causes confusion about the funeral home waste disposal process is the question of just where a funeral home’s responsibility ends. You might, quite reasonably, feel that your responsibility has ended when you hand your waste products over to your waste service provider. However, that is not the case. Your responsibility extends well beyond your waste pick-up appointment.
