Justrite’s Biohazard Waste Containers meet OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1030 for the segregation of infectious waste. Use them to store contaminated laundry as well as other regulated waste; however, not for the storage of sharps. Sturdy steel cans feature leakproof construction with foot-operated, self-closing lid. Simple, foot pedal operation opens the cover automatically to safely dispose of biohazard waste. Upon release of the pedal, the can cover closes quickly to reduce the risk of contamination. A biohazard bag is held securely around the circumference of the can top. Optional label kit #25880 complies with California Health and Safety Code 118280 requiring warning labels to be visible from all sides of the container. Kit includes three labels and instructions.
