Medical waste is a specialized waste stream that is regulated by federal and state governmental agencies. Health care facilities, including hospitals, physician’s offices, dental offices, veterinary hospitals and other clinics, all generate medical waste that requires special handling and disposal. Other facilities that often generate medical waste are laboratories/research centers, education facilities and pet shops.
AEG can handle both biohazard and sharps waste. Biohazardous waste includes items such as fluid blood or fluid blood products, infectious secretions, laboratory waste, microbiology specimens, surgery specimens, animal parts or animal fluids contaminated with infectious agents known to be contagious to humans. Sharps waste includes items such as hypodermic needles, syringes, blades and needles with attached tubing, broken glass items, syringes contaminated with biohazardous waste, acupuncture needles, root canal files, or any other device capable of cutting or piercing. Our hazardous waste technicians can also handle pharmaceuticals and amalgam wastes generated at your facility.
