Biomedical Waste Disposal
The term biomedical waste refers to a wide variety of hospital waste which may contain infectious or potentially infectious materials. Waste that is generated in a hospital or laboratory may include dangerous organisms or biomolecules which cannot be released into the environment. It can be in either solid or liquid form. Discarded sharps needles, animal or human tissue, blood and bandage dressings and laboratory waste are all required to be disposed of by a professional. Unlike general waste or household trash, biomedical waste can potentially lead to the spreading of infectious diseases, and daily exposure due to improper medical disposal can lead to a dangerous accumulation of microbes or other harmful substances in the body.
Sharps Container Disposal
The term Sharps is a medical term which is used to describe needles and any sharp points or edges that can cut or puncture the skin. Many people use sharps on a daily basis at home to treat medical conditions such as diabetes, cancer, allergies, hepatitis, arthritis, blood clotting disorders and more. Some examples of sharps are infusion sets, auto injectors, connection needle/sets, syringes and lancets. Once used, sharps should be immediately disposed of into clearly marked, strong plastic FDA approved sharps disposal containers. These types of containers are available to purchase through our online shop, or medical supply companies and local pharmacies. There are also convenient mail back options with prepaid shipping to send back once the container has been filled to capacity.
Biohazardous Waste Disposal
Any type of waste that may have been in contact with, and possibly contaminated with infectious materials or agents is defined as Biohazardous Waste. The main categories of biohazardous waste are liquid waste, sharps waste, solid waste and pathological waste. These types of infectious waste require professional training, proper protection equipment and employees who must follow strict procedural medical disposal laws in order to remain safe from transmission and in compliance with OSHA laws. AdvoWaste will safely pick up any type of medical disposal waste, controlled substance waste and more – always scheduled at your convenience and at the most competitive rate in the industry.
Environmentally Friendly Disposal Options
AdvoWaste also utilizes the most eco-friendly methods of treating and disposing or recycling of biomedical waste. The two main methods used for recycling medical waste are autoclaving and incineration. Incinerating medical waste can be done in one of several ways, such as by controlled air, excess air or using a rotary kiln. Equipped with eco-friendly air pollution control devices, the burning of medical waste renders the infectious material completely harmless to humans and animals. It also greatly reduces the quantity of the waste being treated. Another method of treating biohazard waste is Autoclaving, which entails using high pressure steam for a specific period of time and temperature to kill bacteria and viruses. Once the Autoclaving process is complete, the infectious waste is fully disinfected and can be safely disposed of just like standard household waste. The majority of regulated medical waste can be safely treated through the autoclave sterilization process. This includes items such as red bag waste, needles and syringes, bandages, personal protective equipment and more. AdvoWaste Medical makes every effort to treat and dispose of biohazard waste materials in the most environmentally safest manner possible in order to keep the planet clean.
