Do I need a medical waste disposal service?

Written by Nathalie Leblond
Medical Waste and Waste Disposal

Do I need a medical waste disposal service?

Our latest blog will help you answer the question do I need a medical waste disposal service, and if the answer is yes, how to go about choosing a reputable supplier of medical waste disposal services. 

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. We've even covered some lesser known topics like medical food waste in the food production industry and how it should be safely disposed of, and medical waste in the Cannabis industry.

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.

I joined Rentokil Initial South Africa in 2004 as the PA to the MD, and after 6 months maternity leave I re-joined the Company in 2009 as the Marketing Co-ordinator for Rentokil. I'm now the Marketing Communication Manager for Rentokil Initial. I'm still terrified of cockroaches (Americana's only!) but the rest of the creepy crawlies we deal with don't really bug me (see what I did there?), so I guess I'm in the right industry! I am passionate about what we do here at Rentokil Initial and also write for our Hygiene Blog, which can be found at blog.initial.co.za, and our Ambius blog - https://www.ambius.co.za/blog. Life outside of Rentokil Initial mostly revolves around my daughter, who has just turned twelve, and my husband (who is a bit older). I love living in Cape Town and wouldn't trade living here for anywhere else in the world.
