Regulated Medical Waste Annual Registration

All generators of Regulated Medical Waste (RMW) in New Jersey are required to register with the Department and pay a fee based upon the quantity of waste generated per calendar year.

  • A new registration is required if your facility;
    • Is initially registering.
    • Moves to another address.
    • Changes Tax Identification # (FEIN) due to a change in business operation/ownership.
  • An updated registration is required if your facility changes;
    • Mailing address.
    • Fees/Billing contact information.
    • Business Name (with no change in FEIN).
    • Generation Category (see below).
  • Note: If you own and/or operate multiple buildings located on the same property or on a contiguous property and not divided by any public roads only one RMW registration is required. However, if there are separate/distinct businesses operating  under different FEIN’s in one building or contiguous property, each would have to register separately for a RMW ID#.
    • I.E. John Doe’s Hospital has a 20-acre campus with multiple buildings that generate RMW (this may include but not limited to a healthcare clinic, nurse’s station, and laboratories). The campus property is contiguous and is not divided by any public roads and is only required to have one RMW ID#. XYZ Podiatry operates under a different FEIN in one of the hospital’s suites and is required to have its own RMW ID#.
