OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Standard:
"Q: Are used urine specimen containers containing urine considered to be infectious waste? Are the same containers when emptied into the sewerage system considered to be infectious and are used urine dip sticks considered to be infectious?
A: The answer is no, unless there was/is visible blood present in the urine. The West Virginia Infectious Medical Waste Rule and the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Standard both consider urine and feces, without visible blood, non-regulated body fluids
. Therefore, neither urine specimen containers nor urine test dip sticks would be treated as infectious. If the urine did contain visible blood, the fluid could be poured down a sanitary sewer; and the container and dip stick would need to be discarded as infectious medical waste."
"It is also recommended by the Oncology Nursing Society that any disposable items contaminated with urine or feces from the patient within 48 hours of chemotherapy
administration should be discarded as hazardous
"...are biohazard cans required in the vicinity of a diaper changing table? In West Virginia, diapers are not infectious medical waste pursuant to Section 3.9.c. of the Rule, which states: 3.9.c. For the purposes of this rule, infectious medical waste does not include the following materials. 3.9.c.3 Used personal hygiene products, such as diapers, facial tissues and sanitary napkins. ...Neither rule defines diapers that contain feces with no visible blood, as infectious medical waste. Therefore there is no need for a biohazard container in a diaper changing area."
This from West Virginia Department of Health
"Understanding that water, urine, feces, and other reasonably anticipated biological components comprising human wastes in sewage are not included in the definition of "other potentially infectious materials" unless "...visibly contaminated with blood...," sewage would not meet the definition of "regulated waste" under most circumstances." excerpt from a letter from Ruth E. McCully, Director
[Office of Health Enforcement], OSHA
"Many folks believe that poop, human poop is a biohazard. The truth is that poop, feces, chacha, ****, turds, scat and the rest may qualify as infectious waste. According to the Centers for Disease control, human feces must have human blood in it before it can be called a biohazard. Therefore, human feces cleanup does not qualify as biohazard cleanup." ...California Affordable Biohazard Cleanup

...117700. Medical waste does not
include any of the following:
(unrelated matter snipped)
(c) Urine, feces, saliva, sputum, nasal secretions, sweat, tears,
or vomitus, unless it contains visible or recognizable fluid blood,
as provided in subparagraph (C) of paragraph (1) of subdivision (b)
of Section 117690.
That's SOME stuff to chew on. I mean think about. I find less information about actual disposal, but I'm not finding anything that considers human waste a biohazard UNLESS it is contaminated with blood, or if the individual has had chemotherapy in the previous 48 hours.
