*All solidification products are subject to a hold time prior to disposal.  Hold times allow the product to effectively disinfect the contents of a suction canister, as well as to set up.  Healthcare facilities are required to ensure the proper disposal of solidified liquids.

At this time, only these five(5) products can be used to solidify and disinfect liquid infectious medical waste intended to be land filled. If a disinfectant solidifier is used the the waste (usually from a suction canister) may go into the regular waste , BUT these items MUST have a label identifying the material as treated infectious medical waste and also include information that identifies the generator of the original infectious medical waste. And include the statement " I hereby certify under penalty of LAW that this waste has been rendered non-infectious in accordance with the procedures required by WV Infectious Medical Waste Rule 64 CSR 56. "

Any other solidification products may be used as long as suction canisters are disposed in the infectious medical waste. 

It is a violation of the West Virginia Infectious Medical Waste Rule if you do not follow the manufacturer's instructions for use for any of these products.
