What is medical waste? 

Medical waste refers to all types of waste materials generated at health care facilities such as hospitals, clinics, dentist offices, physician’s offices, nursing homes, blood bank and collection centers etc. Improper management of medical waste brings potential danger of getting infected or injured to health care facility staff, patients, waste handler and even the general public. It might also pollute the environment. So it is very important that all medical wastes are appropriately sorted and segregated at generation, treated and disposed of in a safe manner. Medical waste shredding machine is a good choice for properly disposal of medical waste.

Composite and shredding of medical waste

According to WHO (World Health Organization), out of all the generated health care waste, only about 10-25% is infectious/hazardous waste, such as needles, scalpels, used swabs, used bandages, human tissues, organs, animal carcasses etc. These waste will pose potential risks to human health or the environment and thus requires special treatment. A majority of 75-90% is general waste which is non-hazardous, such as office paper, wrapper, kitchen waste etc. that haven’t been in contact with patients. No matter if it is a safe disposal of the hazardous portion of medical waste, or the recycling of the non- hazardous, size reduction is an essential step.
