A Medical Waste Segregation Apparatus and Method for segregating medical waste at the point of disposal within a medical facility in preparation for further segregated disposal outside the facility. The medical waste device is divided in half by a vertical plane extending through the mid point thereof and with color coding; i.e., one half red and one half neutral, for easy recognition by busy medical staff to deposit red medical waste in the red sector at the point of generation of such waste, whereby cost savings are available for recyclable general waste in the form of cost avoidance as well as seeking to eliminate commingling of general waste inadvertently with medical waste, to achieve decreased disposal cost and increased opportunity for cost avoidance.
