What is Medical Waste Disposal?


Medical waste disposal is broadly classified as the service provided for any type of item that makes contact with body fluids. More specifically, any type of solid waste that is generated during a medical diagnosis, treatment or immunization procedure. Paper towels, gloves, wipes, needles, syringes without needles and bandages with any amount of blood or fluid are just some of the examples of biohazardous or medical waste. Due to the possibility of medical waste spreading viruses or diseases, there are many laws governing the regulation of medical waste which are very strict.
