Hospitals, medical practices, pharmacies and care homes generate various types of medical waste - from out-of-date or used medicines, syringes and cannulae, to disposable clothes and incontinence products, to infectious and pathological waste. There is a wide range of legislation governing the management of medical waste - for example, dangerous substances such as cytostatic drugs or infectious materials must be treated as hazardous waste.
