What is Clinical Waste?
The term “clinical waste” refers to waste that can spread illness or disease. A clinical waste stream develops in health care facilities such as hospitals, clinics, pharmaceutical companies, and dental practices. Some other clinical waste producers include veterinary medicine, pharmaceutical dispensaries, and research and development laboratories. Among others, acupuncturists, tattoo artists, and piercers also produce clinical waste in the form of sharps and needles. The treatment of clinical waste must be performed by trained personnel because it can be harmful.
The waste includes tissues, needles, blood-soaked bandages, adult diapers, pads, and other items. However, you will remain in full compliance with current legislation when using our healthcare and clinical waste recycling services. Our safe disposal of clinical waste is assured through the methods we use to collect, manage, and destroy it. We can dispose of all sharps containers and dangerous clinical waste. With Wakefield Waste, your clinical waste and sharps are disposed of safely and securely in clinical waste bins and sharps containers. We are fully equipped and undergo frequent training to ensure that we handle clinical waste with the utmost care, having over 30 years of experience.
Clinical Waste Types
Clinical waste can be categorized into four categories: infectious, hazardous, offensive/hygiene waste, and unsuitable for transport.
- Infectious waste is defined as waste containing viable bacteria or their toxins that can be transmitted from one person to another, causing diseases in humans and other living species.
- Hazardous waste is any waste that has one or more features that are harmful to human health or the environment. It contains poisonous compounds that react with the air or cause injury when consumed or absorbed.
- Offensive/hygiene waste is non-infectious and does not require specialized treatment or disposal, but it is unsightly, hence the name.
- Hazardous for transport – Substances posing a threat to people and the environment while in transit.
