This will help to prevent unnecessary exposure to infectious diseases for both you and your employees. “Regulated medical waste (RMW), also known as ‘biohazardous’ waste or ‘infectious medical’ waste, is the portion of the waste stream that may be contaminated by blood, body fluids or other potentially infectious materials, thus posing a significant risk of transmitting infection” (Healthcare Environmental Resource Center). Due to the level of risk involved in spreading infection, you will want an expert in the field to ensure compliance standards are met. With over 25 years of industry experience, you know you will be in good hands with Secure Waste Disposal.
