Different types of pharmaceutical waste
As per data from WHO (World Health Organization), only about 10-25% of pharmaceutical waste is infectious waste. For example, needles, scalpels, used swabs, used bandages, human tissues, organs, animal carcasses, etc. These infectious wastes pose potential risks to human health or the environment and thus require special treatment. A majority of 75-90% is general waste which is non-hazardous. For example, office paper, wrapper, kitchen waste, etc. that haven’t been in contact with patients. No matter if it is safe disposal of the hazardous portion of pharmaceutical waste or the recycling of the non-hazardous, a pharmaceutical waste shredder can effectively reduce the waste size facilitating further processing.
