Any person creates rubbish. However, the disposal of our trash and waste can be different. Some people recycle it. Others burn trash in a five-gallon drum. Some others throw it away in the nearest trash can. Yet, bio-medical waste is not your “normal” trash or waste. Actually, the way of medical waste disposal may differ from state to state according to their laws and regulations.
People who fail to dispose it properly may have to pay hefty fines. Everyone should be careful not to make mistakes during the disposal of their facility’s biomedical waste.
