Public Health

The mission of the Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) is to protect the public through promoting individual, community, and environmental health. 

Public Health Medical Waste Disposal
Medical Waste is any biohazardous waste, pathology, pharmaceutical or trace chemotherapy waste not regulated by the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Biohazards can include waste contaminated by fluid blood, body fluids that may potentially contain infectious agents, pharmaceuticals, and sharps. Medical waste is regulated under the Medical Waste Management Act. In Butte County, the California Department of Public Health implements the medical waste program. Butte County has a sharps collection program and collection kiosks stationed at several county sites.
