Abstract :

Healthcare services provided by hospitals may generate some infectious wastes. Although a large percentage of hospital waste is classified as general waste, which has similar nature as that of municipal solid waste and, therefore, could be disposed in municipal landfills, a small portion of infectious waste has to be managed in the proper manner in order to minimize risk to public health. The management of biomedical waste continues to be a major challenge, particularly, in most healthcare facilities of the developing world. The poor management of clinical solid waste is a significant problem in most economically developing countries. It is estimated that annually about 0.33 million tons of waste is generated in India. Due to recent regulations (the Biomedical Wastes (Management & Handling) Rules, 1998), biomedical waste management in India is receiving greater attention to avoid significant health hazards and environmental pollution due to the infectious nature of the waste. Proper segregation, handling, storage, treatments & disposal of biomedical waste are necessary in order to develop biomedical waste management system in better way. Proper disposal of hospital waste is of paramount importance because of its infectious and hazardous characteristics
