Healthcare settings handle all manner of waste on a daily basis, and it’s important to dispose of it correctly. If healthcare waste is not appropriately dealt with, it could result in harm being caused to staff and patients alike.
At Envirotec Hygiene Services, we have years of experience when it comes to healthcare waste management, helping organisations throughout the industry safely and effectively deal with their healthcare waste, while complying with all the relevant legislation and legal requirements.
Correctly disposing of sharp waste such as needles, syringes and blades requires arguably the most attention, due to the harm they can cause when handling them. As well as potentially causing injury due to scratches and cuts, sharps can lead to infections, too.
At Envirotec Hygiene Services, we can supply your organisation with a number of sharp bins and boxes to place this type of healthcare waste into after use. Coming in different colours depending on how they’re being used, we also provide a dedicated collection service where we can visit your premises, remove your sharps bins and replace them with new ones.
Unsurprisingly, dental surgeries can produce a whole host of healthcare waste, and our team offers a comprehensive dental waste disposal service that puts you and your clients’ safety first.
As well as producing sharp waste, the dental industry produces unique healthcare waste management issues. This includes amalgam waste, a mercury solution that treats cavities. Important to dispose of properly, Envirotec Hygiene Services can provide you with amalgam separators in your dentist chairs and sinks, and we’ll collect and change them at regular intervals, too.
We also offer a gypsum waste and dental mould recycling service that ensures the materials are correctly disposed of and do not end up in landfill where they can produce toxic fumes.
If your premises generates clinical waste, you have a responsibility to safely dispose of it. Clinical waste relates to any healthcare waste products that pose a risk of infection, and we will supply you with clearly labelled colour-coded bins and bags to assist you with your healthcare waste disposal, meaning you don’t need to worry about falling foul of the legislation.
Our team will help find solutions that work for you, collect your waste and make sure it’s disposed of correctly. Whether you work in a small healthcare setting or a large-scale environment that produces copious amounts of healthcare waste, Envirotec Hygiene Services is here to help.
