Health and Safety, Ask the Expert, Medical Waste

We’ve talked a lot over the last few months about medical waste and how it should be disposed of to ensure that no harm comes to the environment or to people and animals that may be inadvertently exposed to it, but how do you know if you need a medical waste disposal service?  

The poster below gives some guidelines on how to determine whether you need to employ a registered waste carrier to dispose of your medical waste.
