Did you know that 20–25 per cent of the total waste generated by healthcare establishments is regarded as hazardous? It goes without saying that this unattended medical and clinical waste can create a variety of health and environmental risks to staff, patients, disposal workers and anyone else coming into contact if not managed and destroyed in an appropriate manner. Incineration is the only proven method of neutralising the risks involved with medical and clinical waste through complete destruction and appropriate disposal.
Because of the risks associated with incorrectly disposing of infected waste, medical and clinical waste incinerators are dealt with under the laws of the United Kingdom and have penalties for infringement. Serious penalties might mean that your right to operate an incinerator can be removed. If removed, you would be required to transport your waste to the nearest registered medical and clinical incinerator, which can cost you both time and money.
If you are interested in purchasing a medical and clinical incinerator you can obtain the specifics on the law on incinerators from your local district health authority, which will be responsible for licensing it. Alternatively, your engineer or facilities manager may well have full details available. The Waste Spectrum technical team can facilitate and advise on specifications to ensure the best solution for your individual requirements, as well as make sure you are legally compliant.
