The answer to this question depends on the type of waste. Regulated medical waste is treated by high heat auto-clave sterilization. At Approved, we take our process a step further – after treatment, we send 100% of our waste to an incinerator for final destruction. This ensures that your waste will never reach a landfill.
Chemotherapeutic waste – This waste type is generated during the administration of Chemotherapeutic medications to cancer patients and must be treated by means of incineration.
Pathological waste – Medical waste containing human or animal tissue must be treated by means of incineration.
