According the North Dakota Solid Waste Management Rules, "Infectious Waste" means solid waste that may contain pathogens with sufficient virulence and in sufficient quantity that exposure of a susceptible human or animal to the solid waste could cause the human or animal to contract an infectious disease. Regulated Infectious Waste includes but is not limited to:
Infectious waste generators are responsible for the storage, collection and disposal of their infectious waste. Generators are responsible for ensuring that infectious waste is transported off-site for treatment by a permitted transporter and disposed of at a facility which is approved to receive waste. Note: If you transport your own waste to an infectious waste management facility a transporter permit is not required.
