The biomedical waste disposal industry grew out of a need to contain and curtail the spread of infectious diseases by waste products emanating from healthcare services/industries and research facilities.
Biomedical waste disposal companies work in conjunction with the Ministry of the Environment (MOE) to mitigate the environmental and health related risks associated with biomedical waste.
As intermediaries, biomedical waste companies ensure industry compliance with MOE regulations and absorb the financial risks which once weighed heavily on healthcare practitioners. As an adjunct to the enforcement efforts of MOE, biomedical waste disposal companies ensure the proper handling, treatment, storage, transport and disposal of waste.
Biomedical waste disposal companies therefore have a dual role to play in the medical waste industry; we support MOE efforts to contain and eliminate hazmat from the environment while providing an indispensible service to healthcare practitioners and research facilities.
The hazardous waste disposal industry deals with sharps waste disposal, biomedical waste disposal, pharmaceutical waste disposal and chemical waste disposal.
