What Can Medical Facilities Place in a Dumpster?
Clinics generate different types of debris daily, and most medical staff won’t know their clinic’s proper waste removal requirements. A doctor’s office could use a dumpster rental to throw away refuse like sharps waste. Here is a glimpse at what waste to throw out in your healthcare facility.
Medical staff must dispose of used medical tools, needles, and other sharps in a secured bin so the items can leave the medical facility safely. Create a cleaner environment and avoid potential infections by using a secured bin to throw away medical tools.
A hospital and medical clinic should use a dumpster rental for their medical waste. Hazardous waste harms the environment, and when it’s not properly disposed of, it harms the local ecosystem. Ensure all chemicals and radioactive materials are properly contained and disposed of in their own containers before being picked up by a radiation specialty team.
Solid Waste and Recycling
Waste in a healthcare setting can originate from any department, including areas like a mortuary or maternity ward. Every station in a medical clinic or hospital collects solid waste, resulting in the need for a dumpster rental. Ensure your healthcare facility is clear of waste.
Medical staff should shred vital documents, like medical records, before dumping piles of them into a dumpster. Medical records that are simply thrown into the garbage increase the chance of identity theft. By shredding these files first and other voided essential documents, you decrease the risk of a dumpster diver taking these files and using them maliciously. So, before getting a dumpster rental for the hospital or doctor’s office, ensure your staff destroys vital records before discarding them.
