Transport of Regulated Medical Waste
Regulated medical waste (RMW), also known as “biohazardous waste” or “infectious medical waste” is the portion of the waste stream that may be contaminated by blood, body fluids or other potentially infectious materials, thus posing a significant risk of transmitting infection.
Medical waste transportation requires specialized professionals to do the task. There are various regulations that govern the transport of regulated medical waste. The term 'medical waste' includes animal waste, blood, body fluids, micro-biological waste, pathological waste and most importantly, sharps like needles and syringes.
CleanScene transports regulated medical waste in a safe and efficient manner. Our technicians have been trained by the American Bio Recovery Association (ABRA) and the National Institute of Decontamination Specialists in all aspects of proper waste transport according to EPA, OSHA and blood borne pathogens regulations (29 CFR 1910.1030). CleanScene is basically a trauma and crime scene clean-up company which also has expertise in providing of transport and handling of regulated medical waste.
Once you entrust us with the responsibility of disposing off your medical waste, we give you disposal boxes and red biohazard bags as containers for the medical waste. For sharps, we have separate containers. All this is provided to you free of charge with the service agreement. In this way, the regulated waste is then sealed in the same containers or leak proof biohazard bags that are then enclosed in containers for shipping. The containers are then sealed and picked up by CleanScene and transported to an approved incinerator.
During the service agreement, apart from the regular and scheduled pick-ups of waste, we are equipped to attend to on-call requests as needed. If you have a situation at your facility where you feel that regulated waste needs to be cleared off immediately (i.e. blood spills), we can do this, too. This on-call service will be provided at a small additional cost, unless it is agreed upon in the service agreement.
