Almost 80% of the medical waste generated every year consists of plastics, papers, and other materials that are quite similar to general household or office waste. But the remaining 20%-25% consists of bioactive waste materials such as used syringes, blood-soaked bandages, cultures, stocks, unused or expired medicines, and many more, which are harmful to both humans and the environment alike. Such waste products need to be disposed of properly. Poor handling of these wastes has the potential of exposing patients, waste handlers, and healthcare professionals to serious infections.
