The biomedical waste is defined as waste generated from the health care activities such as treatment, diagnostics, monitoring, preventive, healing or soothing control in both human and veterinary medicine. The overall infectious material can consist of:
- • Infectious medical waste (any contaminated waste that can cause harm to human, animal health, or to the environment) is composed of paper, plastic, glass, metal, or fabrics
- • Pathological waste (waste derived from any tissue from animal carcasses or non-recognizable human specimens)
- • Infected sharp waste (syringes, needles, scalpels, and blades)
- • Infectious liquid waste (blood, pleural fluid, peritoneum, pericardium, amniotic, synovial...)
- • Laboratory waste (culture media, sampling...)
- • Pharmaceutical waste such as expired vaccines and non-conforming lots that are intended for destruction
The biomedical waste must be treated onsite at the point of generation by an explicit and certified system or shipped offsite to a permitted treatment facility.
