Waste Management

Clinical Waste

Clinical Waste

Clinical waste is defined as waste originating from medical, nursing, dental, or related settings that may potentially cause harm to others through injury or infection. This category includes items such as syringes, needles, bandages, and dressings that have been contaminated with blood or other sharp instruments.

This type of waste can be broadly classified into three groups:

1. **Infectious Healthcare Waste:** Waste that poses a risk of infection, often including items contaminated with blood or other potentially infectious materials.

2. **Chemical Hazard Healthcare Waste:** Specific healthcare wastes that present a chemical hazard.

3. **Medicinal and Pharmaceutically-Contaminated Waste:** Waste containing pharmaceutical agents or medicinally-contaminated items.

At Professional Hygiene, we take pride in being your primary resource for clinical waste management advice and collections. Our commitment is to provide a comprehensive solution for the safe and ethical disposal of clinical waste, ensuring the well-being of both our clients and the broader community. Trust us to be your reliable partner in managing clinical waste responsibly and in compliance with all relevant regulations.
