Healthcare FAQ

While the needs of every facility may vary, in general, medical waste refers to any materials generated during the diagnosis, treatment, care, or immunization of humans. This may include sharps, biological waste, spoiled laundry, and equipment.

We are continually impressed by those dedicated family members and friends working hard to maintain a quality of life for anyone experiencing short or long-term illness. However, we encourage you all to safely consider the proper disposal of medical waste, especially sharps.

The best option is to contact our team at Rumpke for help, but in the meantime, please place all sharps in a heavy plastic container with the cap on and secure the lid with heavy-duty tape to prevent leakage. Then label the container with the word “SHARPS” on all sides in big, block letters. These are not to be recycled. Only put the sealed container in your trash.

Biohazardous waste should be handled carefully and disposed of safely. Your best option is to contact our professional team and inquire about your biohazardous material concerns.
