What is the best way to dispose of hospital waste?



  1. 0 Votes

    Medical waste disposal is an important topic. It contributes to land, water, and air contamination and so should be dealt with urgently. There is no single way to dispose of hospital waste as the World Health Organization classifies different categories of types of waste, which each have different disposal methods. The categories include infectious, sharps, pharmaceuticals, pathological, radioactive, and others. Generally, the best method is to collect everything, separate the different types, safely transport them to another location, store them, and then dispose of them separately.

    The Steam Autoclaving method is the most widely used and most efficient alternative medical-waste-treatment technology. This system uses high heat levels in steam to sterilize the waste, and then it all gets compacted to reduce the waste volume before being disposed of. Other methods include chemical treatment, microwave radiation, and thermal systems.
