Biomedical waste means any waste, which is generated during the diagnosis, treatment or immunization of human beings or animals or in research activities pertaining thereto or in the production or testing of biological. WHO states that 85% of hospital wastes are actually non hazardous whereas 10% are infectious and 5% are non infectious but are included under hazardous wastes. Biomedical waste is different from general waste and must be segregated, collected, stored, transported and disposed off properly. When it is not properly managed, it can get mixed with general waste within the hospital and subsequently with solid municipal waste outside. This can expose the entire community to highly infectious diseases like HIV, Hepatitis B and C, Tuberculosis and other skin and respiratory ailments if not managed properly.
