What is Clinical Waste?

Clinical waste is described as waste generated in medical, nursing, dental, or other settings that creates a danger of infection or injury to others. Blood-contaminated syringes, needles, bandages, and dressings, as well as other sharp devices, are all examples. Clinical waste is toxic or harmful and cannot be disposed of in conventional refuse. It is generated often in healthcare facilities such as hospitals, clinics, doctors’ offices, veterinary hospitals, and laboratories.

Wakefield Waste will provide you with clinical waste bins and sharps bins to store your clinical waste safely and securely. Because clinical waste can be harmful, it must be appropriately treated by trained personnel. Our crew is adequately equipped and undergoes frequent training to handle clinical waste with care, with over 30 years of experience in the field.

Types of Clinical Waste

Clinical waste is different from other types of commercial wastes and other kinds of hazardous wastes such as radioactive, chemical, universal, and industrial waste. However, we must note that the production of harmful chemicals and radioactive materials is also common in healthcare facilities. Despite the fact that these wastes are not infectious, they must be disposed of properly. Infectious, hazardous, offensive/hygiene waste, and unsafe for transport are the four categories of clinical waste.

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.

Substances potentially hazardous to people or the environment during transport; these are classified as “Dangerous for transport.”

Clinical Waste Disposal Wakefield

Incorrect disposal of abandoned needles and other sharps might endanger the health of the public and waste workers. The discarded needles may also cause needle stick injuries to waste workers when containers inside garbage trucks break open or when needles are accidentally transported to recycling facilities. UK regulations govern both how clinical waste is to be treated and how it is to be disposed of.
