FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW SOUTH WALES, AU — 15 July 2020 — Hospitals and healthcare offices don’t need to worry whether their capital outlay supports waste disposal and management.
With 180 Waste Group, they can pay as they go under the cost per cycle (CPC) plan. The company services hospitals, surgeries, clinics, laboratories, waste management transfer centres, and medical supply manufacturers in Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific Island.
According to 180 Waste Group, approximately 0.5 kg of potentially infectious medical waste is generated per hospital bed, per day. Many hospitals have hundreds of beds.
“Dealing with medical waste is the elephant in the room nobody wants to talk about,” said Brent Carlisle, spokesperson for 180 Waste Group. “This waste is infectious, hazardous, and not handling it right can cause a big problem. Our solutions for clients make handling, processing, and disposal easier and safer.”
The Clinical Waste Management division offers an innovative approach to dealing with waste. They set up clinics to perform on-site treatment, which is ultimately safer and better for the environment. By the end of the process, the waste is sterilised and is a fraction of its original weight and volume.
There are multiple approaches to 180 Waste Group’s Healthcare Waste Treatment. The facility can treat its own waste on-site, hospitals can team up with other facilities to treat more waste, or they can use a dedicated treatment plant.
Five processes currently exist for processing healthcare waste: thermal heat treatment, chemical treatment, irradiation treatment, biological treatment, and mechanical processes.
The 180 Waste Group uses Frictional Heat Treatment (FHT). This is a thermal, non-incineration treatment.
Two major concerns with medical waste disposal are the risk of transporting infectious materials and potential environmental contamination. 180 Waste Group produced an easy-to-understand video on their website explaining to customers the importance of proper waste disposal.
