      It remains essential to ensure that all biohazardous waste is disposed of in a manner that maintains health and safety regulations and obligations. Aside from biohazardous waste being unpleasant to encounter, it can also be quite dangerous. Any health business should have protocols in place for if there is a mishap with medical waste, and it can even involve closing down the facility for a period while the problem is contained. Avoid this complication by implementing medical waste services which are cautious and evidence based. At Solo Resource Recovery, we provide medical waste services which are trustworthy and will ensure ongoing and regular collection of any potentially biohazardous items. Our medical waste services in Pottsville can be a weight off your shoulders as a clinic operator or owner, as you can trust all is being handled in the correct manner.

      Any health care business has an obligation to dispose of medical waste in the correct manner. For example, acupuncturists’ needles should not be thrown in a regular waste bin as there is a risk of puncturing the container or bin bag which has not been designed for this purpose. This is dangerous due to the risk of needle stick injuries, which require a strict treatment protocol and have potentially disastrous consequences for the injured individual. Instead, the safest option is to engage with Solo Resource Recovery for provision of a sharps container which will be regularly serviced. Sharps containers are equipped with a lock so there is no risk of the container being emptied on site. Instead, we will collect the container from your premises and deliver a new, empty container. The spent container is then taken to an appropriate facility where it is opened and its contents treated or destroyed in a safe environment. Another common type of pathological waste, which can be accommodated by our medical waste services in Pottsville, is used bandages. As these items contain blood, they should always be handled with the appropriate care and disposed of in a yellow pathological waste containers. They should never be placed in regular waste or recycling bins, or laundered for re-use. While we encourage and promote recycling through our business waste services at Solo Resource Recovery, there are some instances where this is not possible due to the risk to life and health if these items are re-used or recycled.
