Hospital & Medical Center Waste
Jan 5, 2017
Hospitals and medical centers produce a unique combination of waste which, simply because of its sheer mass, can pose a unique set of challenges even for the most experienced waste disposal company. This is why it is important to have a medical waste disposal company you can count on. They’ll need to deal with a wide range of hospital and medical center wastes which each require specialized disposal needs.
The waste generated at a hospital or medical center includes, but is not limited to:
- Sharps waste
- Infectious waste
- Biohazardous waste
- Dental amalgam waste
- Records removal and shredding
- Chemotherapy waste
- Pathological waste
- and more…
This means that, when working with a hospital or a medical center, it’s crucial your medical waste disposal company knows the different between each of these types of wastes and disposes of them properly. Especially in states where you’re responsible for the medical waste even after it has left your facilities.
Additionally, medical waste disposal services will have to provide the correct containers for the range of medical waste produced at your hospital or medical center.
