Do You Classify These Products As Hazardous Medical Wastes?

Medical Waste Disposal is mostly regulated and controlled by state agencies in the USA, but now, even the federal agencies have taken the matter into their hands. No wonder, they have come up with lots of local laws relating medical wastes.

In many such cases, people usually get confused about the elements which are to be classified under medical wastes and the ones which are not.

But for your assistance on this, you always have the proficient waste management organizations to offer you the exact information. For instance, if you need any info relating waste disposal in Winston Salem, you can always seek the assistance of a good waste disposal agency in the local vicinity.

Here are some really interesting products, with their description about whether to classify/not to classify them under medical wastes:

  • E-Cigarettes:

The cartridges of E-cigarettes could contain some flavored nicotine solution. After this is used, the user normally tosses it in a regular waste bin.

However, if you believe the researches, the cartridges could still contain nicotine portions,which pose threat to the animals and environment. Sometimes, even the children may get infected due to this, if they find the cartridges astray.

Thus, e-cigarette cartridges are always categorized under hazardous wastes.

  • Nicotine Patches:

In case of nicotine patches, things could have differential aspects.

If the patch is opened, but not used, the patch and the wrapper could be considered hazardous wastes. However, when the patch is used after opening, this is no more a hazardous waste.

  • Feminine Hygiene Products:

The hygiene products used by females too are under constant debate of whether to consider them hazardous or non-hazardous after their use.

Most of them might consider them unsafe to be dumped with regular products due to the fear of blood-borne pathogens etc. associated with them.

However, as per OSHA, these sanitary napkins contain special absorbent materials which soak all liquids. Due to this, even after its usage, the sanitary napkins may not be considered a hazardous medical waste.

  • Food Products:

You might never consider this but a couple of airports in Orlando consider the unconsumed scraps of food as medical wastes. As of this, the food cannot be simply tossed into regular waste containers with other kinds of garbage.

In fact, the garbage is treated efficiently since it falls under two jurisdictions:

  • USDA- The US Department Of Agriculture
  • CBP- The Custom And Border Protection

Thus, food products may not be considered safe to be dropped in a regular trash container, unless you are acquainted with the regulations of a region.

For storing your medical wastes, you have hoards of distinct containers which could be obtained according to the kind of wastes you need to store in them.

Safe hazardous waste management within an organization could be attributed to proper education and training to the employees.

You could now call for OSHA training and let the employees, personnel and even general visitors obtain benefits out of it. With effective training and education, lots of medical waste risks and threats could be eliminated efficiently.

Medical Waste Treatment Has Improved a Great Deal:

Previously, the medical waste knew only a handful of treatments such as burning or dumping etc., which contributed a great deal to pollute the earth and atmosphere.

However, with the modern waste treatment methods such as autoclaving etc., the wastes could be turned non-toxic before the final disposal to prevent pollution.

Also, the modern practices allow the ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ of wastes which is yet another helpful aspect to decrease the burden of waste on the earth.

Sharps Waste Management Is Realized And Practiced:

We are well acquainted with how dangerous the sharps wastes could be, offering double the troubles than any other kind of medical wastes.

However, with the emergence of new and improved FDA-approved containers, the proper methods to store the sharps wastes and their careful treatment and disposal etc. have reduced the perils a great deal.

If you too need any such assistance, contact the best medical waste management organization of your region and follow all the stipulated regulations to prevent any mishaps with the generated wastes.



Why Glass (Even Unbroken) Is Considered A Form Of Sharps Waste

As per the definition- ‘Sharps waste is defined as a kind of medical waste that is capable of piercing the human body and causing lots of fatal contaminations due to it.’

No doubt, the syringes, the needles, lancets, connection needles and auto-injectors are some products which fall into this category and then fall into the sharps containers after their use.

All of such sharps are handled with double the carefulness by biohazard waste disposal companies of the stipulated region.

However, an element that is highly disregarded as sharps waste is the glassware. The medical waste contains lots of glass items, including vacutainer tubes, Petri dishes, slides and capillary tubes etc.

All such elements could be contaminated and thus run the risk of delivering infections. However, all such glass products (even if unbroken) are categorized under sharps wastes only.

Why Is Glass AForm Of Sharps Waste?

Any kind of glassware, whether broken or not, should always go into proper sharps containers.

Why so?

This is since,even when the glass is unbroken, it is strong enough to cut holes the bags it gets stored and you cannot even deny its chances of puncturing plastic containers which are not too rigid in nature.

When any of the waste bags or containers get punctured, chances of medical accidents and contaminants increase a great deal. This could hurt the waste managers at a healthcare center, the people who come in contact and even the transporters of medical wastes.

Thus, it is essential to transfer all kind of medical glassware in designated sharps waste containers only. The containers should be FDA-approved and should fulfill all the aspects relating safe storage of sharps wastes.

Some Other Safety Considerations With Glass Wastes:

If you are a resident of Durham, no doubt you should consult the most proficient waste management agency for your glass-related medical waste disposal in Durham. However, there are some other safety controls which you can exercise with the medical wastes.

Here are some of them:

  • If you intend to send your glass waste for treatment or recycle, these may not gel well with other metallic sharps. Therefore, you need to store them in a separate, rigid container only.
  • Do not wait for the container to get fully filled. In fact, schedule its pickup when it reaches a safe handling level.
  • Label the glass container well and restrict the discard of any other kind of waste in it.
  • Let only the most experienced employees handle the glass wastes and never allow the access of any unauthorized person at places where it is kept.

Glass medical wastes may lead to severer injuries in comparison to other sharps. Therefore, these should be handled with utmost carefulness and get properly disposed ofby an authorized medical waste disposal organization only.
