I just recently attended an OSHA workshop and the question came up about the 
disposal of gloves and the transport specimen bags.   If they are not visibly 
soiled, regular trash is all right.  If you think the gloves might be 
contaminated, throw them in the Biohazard can.    

The cost of disposing of the Biohazard waste is determined normally by the 
weight.  So the unnecessary disposal in a Biohazard waste container will just 
drive up operating cost.
