At WISE we take the management of infectious waste very seriously and cytotoxic waste is a leading concern for healthcare professionals throughout the country when formulating a proper medical waste management plan. WISE can help our clients segregate, package, and label trace chemotherapy waste to ensure safe pickup and disposal. Our Chemotherapy waste solutions are designed to positively impact the environment, protect healthcare employees and patients while maintaining compliance.
Understanding the terminology goes a long way when identifying Chemotherapy waste. Chemotherapy waste is separated into two waste streams when it comes to its disposal and it is incumbent upon the generator to identify how to effectively segregate between bulk Chemo RCRA hazardous waste (black container) and Trace Chemotherapy waste (yellow container). Failure to properly identify and segregate Chemotherapy waste has long and lasting effects on the environment if not properly disposed of.
