Potentially Infectious Medical Waste (PIMW)

What records must be kept?

PIMW haulers must keep records of their shipments. Forms for keeping these records are available from the Illinois EPA and are provided at the time a permit is granted. Daily records should be kept at the haulers' offices. Quarterly reports must be turned in, along with transportation fees, to the Illinois EPA. An annual report must be filed by March 31 each year by haulers required to have a PIMW permit. The report must specify the quantities and disposition of PIMW transported during the previous calendar year. All reports must be on forms prescribed and provided by the Illinois EPA.
