Dear Mr. Chilcott:

This responds to your letter requesting clarification on the segregation requirements under the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180).  Specifically, you inquire whether regulated medical waste, Division 6.2, may be transported with other materials in the same motor vehicle.

Under the HMR, there are no segregation or separation restrictions for the highway transport of regulated medical waste, Division 6.2, that has been properly packaged.

I trust this satisfies your inquiry.  Please contact us if we can be of further assistance.
