There are numerous methods for treating medical waste, but the most used methods include autoclaving, incineration, chemical and microwave. These processes convert the once contaminated waste to decontaminated solid waste. Most medical waste companies will simply dispose of this decontaminated medical waste in a landfill, but PureWay offers a new method for disposal that gives true medical waste and sharps container recycling options.
Here is how the medical waste recycling process works
1. For approved facilities, waste is picked up using route truck service or mail back and delivered to a select facility that has a special equipment to manage medical waste.
2. The medical waste is processed through the decontamination machine and decontaminated.
3. This waste is run through a sorting process that separates materials that can be recycled vs. materials that cannot be recycled. The recyclable end product varies by cycle but averages 60-95% of total volume!
4. Remaining recyclable waste is transported to a plastics recycling facility where it will be broken down and reused as a resin or other biproduct.
