What Is BioHazardous Waste?
Biohazardous waste, also called infectious waste or biomedical waste, is any waste containing infectious or potentially infectious materials such as blood, body fluids or human cells is deemed a threat to public health and the environment. Thus it is regulated by state and local governments. Collecting, handling, transporting and disposing of biohazardous waste materials in a compliant way can be costly and dangerous – which is why many of your medical neighbors choose to outsource their biohazardous waste disposal services to the experienced team at GreenServ.
Biohazardous waste includes:
- Blood & blood products
- Human body fluids and pathological waste
- Sharps, blades, needles, glass pipettes
- Other biohazardous substances
Categories of BioHazardous Waste
There are four categories of waste.
- Solid waste includes non-sharp items contaminated with any bodily fluids or biological material. For example: gloves, pipettes, towels, or culture.
- Liquid waste includes bulk quantities of blood or bodily fluids.
- Sharps waste includes any materials that can puncture or pierce through skin and is contaminated with biological material that can risk transmission or release to the environment. For example: needles, syringes, scalpels, microscopic slides, small broken glass or tubes.
- Pathological waste includes human organs, tissues and body parts with the exception of teeth.
