Biohazard Waste Disposal

 

Biohazard Waste Disposal. Biohazardous waste, also called infectious waste or biomedical waste, is any waste containing infectious or potentially-infectious materials such as bodily fluids, blood, or human cells, and is deemed a threat to public health and the environment. It is regulated by state and local governments. The collection, handling, transportation, and disposal of biohazardous waste materials in a compliant manner requires licensing, infrastructure, and experience. This is why many waste generators choose to outsource their biohazardous waste disposal services to the team at Med Waste Gone.

It is important for healthcare or medical facilities to take caution when handling biohazardous material. Only trained personnel should handle this type of waste.

 

There are four categories of biohazardous waste:

  1. Solid waste includes any non-sharp items contaminated with any type of bodily fluids or biological material. For example: towels, swabs, gloves or cultures.
  2. Liquid waste includes any bulk quantities of blood or bodily fluids.
  3. Sharps waste includes any materials that can puncture or pierce through skin and is contaminated with biological material that presents a risk of pathogen transmission or release to the environment. For example: needles, syringes, scalpels, microscopic slides, small broken glass or tubes.
  4. Pathological waste includes human organs, tissues and body parts, with the exception of teeth.

 

Biohazardous waste includes:

  • Blood and blood products
  • Human body fluids and pathological waste
  • Sharps, blades, needles, and glass pipettes
  • Other biohazardous substances
