Biohazard/Clinical and related waste are classed as waste that has the potential to cause injury, infection, and offence to the general population. Sharps, human tissue, laboratory, and animal waste resulting from medical, dental, or veterinary research or treatment can cause disease. Other related waste from sources specified by a health facility falls within this category. Related waste is defined as waste within the biohazard/clinical waste stream which constitutes or is contaminated with cytotoxic drugs, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. Definitions include all waste contaminated with human or animal matter from any patient care area, surgery, health or transport facility, and an autopsy, surgical, pathological, dental and veterinary, or laboratory procedure. It includes bone and other tissue, swabs, bandages, blood samples, and disposable surgical hardware.
All Medical Waste Australia provides health care professionals with a complete, cost-effective, environmentally sound contaminated medical waste disposal service. We offer a range of clinical waste bins and sharps disposal containers to collect Clinical Waste at the client’s location safely.
All our waste bins are sturdy with a safety locking lid to prevent removal or spillage of contents. Waste bins are delivered clean, fully lined, and are designed to meet all safety requirements. Our waste bins are treated according to the standards set by the E.P.A. Once collected, they are transported using specially designed vehicles to an approved E.P.A. facility and are disposed of. The frequency of medical waste collection can be daily, weekly, fortnightly, monthly, or at a frequency to suit every client’s requirement. We have successfully tailored medical waste removal from dental and medical clinics, which generate smaller volumes of hazardous medical waste that require a more customised service for medical waste disposal and management.
