Sharps Waste

Sharps waste is classified by the FDA as biohazardous waste and care must be handled appropriately. Some of the most common medical devices considered sharps waste are hypodermic needles, disposable scalpels and blades, contaminated glass, certain plastics, and dental wire.


Biohazard Waste Disposal

Biohazardous waste is any waste that is of medical origin such as biomedical waste from physicians, laboratories, dentists, nursing homes, and veterinary clinics. Biohazardous waste is any solid or liquid material that contains contaminants like blood and body fluids.

pharmaceutical waste

Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal

Pharmaceutical waste includes expired and partially used drugs and vaccines, that are no longer required and need to be disposed. It also includes contaminated pharmaceutical products, discarded items used in the handling of pharmaceuticals, such as bottles or boxes with residues.

pathological waste

Pathological Waste Disposal

Pathological waste is one example of medical waste and just like other types of biohazardous or pharmaceutical waste, it requires a specific disposal process. If your facility produces this type of waste, it must be segregated, packaged, and labeled properly.

chemo waste
