What is Hospital Clinical Waste?

Hospital clinical waste is defined as any material with the potential to cause disease, harm or infection. It is typically segregated into the following categories:

  • General (non-hazardous paper, plastics, liquids).
  • Sharps (needles, plastic, scalpels etc.).
  • Biohazardous (human blood, tissue, body fluids, etc.).
  • Radioactive (anything containing radioactive material).
  • Cytotoxic (anything used during cytotoxic treatment).

Safe & Secure Hospital Waste Disposal

In Australia, general contaminated waste can be either treated and landfilled or Incinerated.

However, the Environmental Protection Regulation 2019 requires incinerating any Cytotoxic, Anatomical and Pharmaceutical wastes. Given the nature of contaminated hospital waste often being comingled, Ace Waste only offers Incineration as a means of disposal, ensuring that the highest level of destruction is achieved and assuring hospitals that their regulatory requirements are adhered to.

Waste Collection Disposal

Ace Waste owns two of the largest incineration facilities in Australia, which sustainably destroy all hazardous and infectious pathogens.

Our team can simplify even the most complex systems while meeting all safety, security and regulatory requirements. Chat to us today to get started.

Protect your Facility with our Colour-Coded Bins

In Australia, staff must segregate all hospital clinical waste in clearly labelled, yellow plastic bags and bins to reduce the risk of human and environmental exposure. This excludes cytotoxic and radioactive material, which have their own colours for added protection (purple and red).

Ace Waste has a wide range of containers and bins that are durable, secure and trusted by many medical facilities and organisations. We can assign an experienced waste coordinator to assess your facility and identify what type, size and number of bins you require, along with a suitable, EPA-approved collection schedule.
