Under Subtitle J of RCRA, EPA is to report to Congress on several aspects of medical waste management and the demonstration program for tracking medical wastes. The report is the first in a series of 3 reports which are required by, and address the topics specified in, RCRA Section 1100(a). Medical wastes that are subject to the demonstration program regulations are generated primarily by hospitals, and comprise approximately 0.3% by weight of the municipal solid waste stream. Wastes from home health care, which are not 'medical wastes' under the definition of RCRA 1004(4), are likely to contain a significant number of syringes--one of the medical items of concern to Congress when it enacted the Medical Waste Tracking Act of 1988.
