Disposal of TV probe covers without blood

    Seeking clarification regarding the appropriate method of disposal for TV probe covers.
    There was a time where it was to be thrown in biohazard bags.
    A few years ago, at an institution where I worked, we were notified that they could go in the regular trash.
    I'm now looking it up formally online, and it appears that it should be disposed of in biohazard bags. Yet, used condoms are thrown in regular trash.
    Does someone have something recent from AIUM regarding this? There is plenty about the TV probe itself, but cannot find specifics on probe covers.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.
