Infectious waste is all the waste that has the potential of passing on pathogens through water supplies like poisonous pharmaceuticals or when in contact with our blood through open cuts. This could be waste contaminated with blood such as bandages, syringes, gauze, and pharmaceuticals such as expired drugs or lab pathogens.
Offensive and Hygiene Waste Leeds
This type of waste got its name from its appearance. It also usually emits a foul-smelling odour. It poses a bit of residual risk but isn’t as highly Infectious as the above Infectious waste. This type of waste consists of faeces, sanitary waste, incontinence pads, and nappies.
