Bio-medical waste generated in clinics and hospitals must be disposed securely as infectious waste would cause infection to people who come in contact with it. The waste, like used tissues, microbiological waste, discarded drugs, used dressings, needles, syringes, bandages, cotton swabs, etc., must be collected in biomedical bags, not general use waste bags. When handling these biomedical waste collection bags, people must wear heavy-duty rubber gloves, apron, mask and boots to ensure their safety. The bags filled with biomedical waste must be tied sealed before transportation. This waste must be transported in a designated vehicle.
