    Who should I call to pick up syringes?

    Both hospitals and nursing homes are required to accept home medical waste, including sharps, as long as they are contained properly.

If you or your company needs professional help with your needle waste, contact Advowaste, which is licensed for medical waste disposal in Albany and the surrounding areas.

    What are the CDC guidelines for handling infectious wastes?

    The CDC issues guidelines for infection control, which several other agencies oversee regulations for medical waste. These include OSHA, the EPA, the Department of Transportation, and state and local governments. That is why it is so important to select a company like Advowaste who is experienced in medical waste management at the federal, state and local levels.

    Certain types of institutions are regulated when it comes to pharmaceutical waste disposal, while individual consumers have a number of other options.
