COVID-19 testing materials are considered biomedical waste
The Ministry of Environment dictates that pathological waste (Waste Class 312 P) requires specific storage and disposal procedures
All waste must be stored and shipped in approved containers and packaging
Regular waste removal is required to maintain sanitation and safety. Weekly pickups are recommended, especially if your staff isn’t experienced at handling biomedical waste
What does this mean for your business?
Using improper storage solutions means additional processing fees
To meet compliance standards, you must dispose of this waste in approved containers with the correct biohazard labelling and yellow colour
GIC can provide various containers, but the 23L pail shown on the left is the most popular and convenient option and complies with all government requirements
How to protect your business and employees
The strict requirements are in place to create a safer environment for everyone, but they can be confusing and overwhelming. The best way to make sure that your business is compliant and safe is to leave the waste to the waste experts at GIC Medical Disposal.
When it comes to cost, most businesses are afraid of being tied down to costly
long-term contracts, but at GIC there are no contracts or monthly fees.
Whatever your budget, schedule or waste volumes, GIC can offer different
container types to suit your needs, we can create a solution that fits your budget
and arrange a service schedule that works for you.
