Capturing Used N95 Masks for Reprocessing

Groundbreaking, FDA-approved technology allows for the decontamination and reuse of N95 masks. Effective now, used N95 masks will be collected at end of shift.

  • Place N95 Mask in bin marked “Used N95 Masks Only” 
  • For soiled and damaged: If the mask is dirty with visual soilage (bodily fluid, blood, or makeup, including foundation), or damaged (ripped, torn), dispose in biohazard trash within Dirty Utility Room
    • Do not put in bin for reprocessing
  • Place brown bag in Dirty Utility trash can 
  • For soiled: Dispose in biohazard trash
