      There are many businesses in the medical and allied health fields that produce waste which must be handled with caution and according to local laws and regulations. By contracting Solo Resource Recovery to be the provider for your business of medical waste services in Lonsdale, you can rest assured that these tasks are being completed in accordance with your obligations. We can provide many different types of medical waste services. Exactly which services you need will depend on the nature of activities occurring at your premises. For example, you may need special purpose bags in a variety of capacities for biohazardous waste, large wheelie bins, and other types of bins and containers. Sharps containers are also a popular necessity for many businesses, clinics, and facilities. As needles and other sharp objects cannot be disposed of through regular waste channels, and must be handled with care, they must be discarded into specially designed containers only. You will find your clinic has a need for these containers if you administer injections, or use syringes to take blood draws and other biological samples. You may also require small sharps containers in bathrooms and other private areas to accommodate needle users such as diabetics. Medical waste services in Lonsdale are not only for human medical facilities, but can be useful for veterinarians also. It is a matter of safety to ensure that any contaminated items are discarded in the correct manner to reduce the risk of injury to your personnel, clients and visitors. At Solo Resource Recovery, we can guide you to evaluate your existing processes and determine where new or different services are required.

      When implementing a medical waste plan, it is crucial to consider if the type of containers and bins are appropriate. It is not sufficient to re-purpose bins that you may have on hand. There are conventions when it comes to the disposal of medical waste, in order to promote safety and caution. You may have noticed that medical waste receptacles tend to be bright yellow. This is the case for sharps containers, plastic bags, and wheelie bins alike. The reason for this is the symbolic value of yellow in communicating danger. Usually, medical waste bins and containers also have logos and writing to indicate biohazardous or otherwise dangerous contents. It is important for any medical or health related facility to abide by these conventions to err on the side of caution. For example, a sharps container should always specify that it should not be emptied. This is to avoid well meaning cleaning personnel opening the container and handling its contents. Instead, sharps containers should always be collected by the waste services provider. When your container is collected, you are delivered a new, empty container. This allows for continuous service while the interests of safety are preserved.
