How is medical waste treated?

Medical waste falls into three categories:

  • Regulated medical waste
    • Your typical medical waste including sharps is treated by high heat auto-clave sterilization. Waste is then shredded and landfilled.
  • Chemotherapeutic waste
    • This waste type is generated during the administration of cancer medications and is treated by means of incineration. This is a requirement.
  • Pathological waste
    • This is medical waste containing human or animal tissue and is also treated by means of incineration. This is a requirement.
