Different types of pharmaceutical waste

As per data from WHO (World Health Organization), only about 10-25% pharmaceutical waste is infectious waste. For example, needles, scalpels, used swabs, used bandages, human tissues, organs, animal carcasses etc. These infectious wastes pose potential risks to human health or the environment and thus require special treatment. A majority of 75-90% is general waste which is non-hazardous. For example, office paper, wrapper, kitchen waste etc. that haven’t been in contact with patients.
