Gainesville Biohazard Disposal Services
Gainesville, FL is the largest city in Alachua County, and also the county seat. It is known as a college town, which means that not only does it have a great tradition of pride and legacy, it also has a tradition of research and progress. The University of Florida has grown by leaps and bounds since its 1906 origins with 100 students to a respected research institute whose campus covers 2000 acres and boasts the sixth largest enrollment in the nation.
From medical research icons to Nobel Prize winners, this region produces some of the great minds of each generation. The largest hospitals and medical centers in the area include the UF Health Shands Cancer Hospital, the Select Specialty Hospital Gainesville, and the North Florida Regional Medical Center.
In addition to these, the area has a wealth of scientific and medical research facilities, urgent care centers and walk-in clinics. This presents the potential for a great deal of biohazard disposal needs, and when research centers in Gainesville, FL, need the best in medical waste disposal, they turn to the experienced experts at WasteX.
Medical Waste Disposal
Biomedical waste or biohazard disposal is necessary when medical centers and scientific research facilities produce waste materials which hold the potential (or certainty) of infection with pathogens. Including gauze, body fluids and tissues, infected gloves, and other disposable materials left over from procedures, these dangerous materials must be completely and safely disposed of to protect patients, employees and the surrounding environment.
Sharps refers to anything that could potentially puncture, prick or cut someone, and thereby pass on pathogens and infections. This can include used hypodermic needles, blades from scalpels, glass, and the like. These must be handled very carefully to avoid accidental infections.
Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal
Pharmaceutical waste is a serious concern in today’s medical and research sectors. Expired medications and unused excess chemical treatments can gather and build up. They cannot be disposed of by flushing them down the drain; to do so risks contaminating groundwater and the surrounding environment.
Such chemicals have to be very carefully treated with specialized methods and skills to render them neutral so they do not risk contaminating the area. In fact, there are strict DEA regulations involving pharmaceutical waste disposal, which include fines of up to $37,500 per day, per violation.
