Waste generated in the hospital environment is a particularly sensitive and regulated type, subject to specific regulations.
The regulations provide for the division of medical waste into separate categories, each with specific characteristics and risks.
In this article we will focus on hazardous medical waste with an infectious risk, a sensitive and relevant category in hospital settings and healthcare facilities.
