Medical waste solutions involve the careful collection, treatment and disposal of clinical and pharmaceutical waste. This also includes cytotoxic waste, sharps, x-rays, mercury, sterile wrap, single-use medical devices and hospital theatre plastics.
Such waste is generated at healthcare facilities including hospitals, dental practices, blood banks and medical research facilities.
In most cases, traditional bins are not the most suitable or the best form of disposal for medical waste. Sensitive, high-risk or hazardous waste must be handled in a safe and responsible way. Whether it is the destruction of products or the secure collection of substances, it is vital that medical waste is handled with care to prevent any risks to the health and wellbeing of the community.
