Pathological Waste Collection and Disposal
Pathological Waste Disposal should involve a medical waste incinerator. Waste Clean Industries works with the only treatment facility in southern California that is allowed by the Air Quality Management District of Los Angeles to properly burn this type of waste onsite – due to patented technology that renders the exiting air completely void of any contaminants or pollution. One of our competitive advantages is that we do not have to accommodate for shipment to out of state locations. This can be a huge savings and carbon footprint reduction~!
Waste Clean Industries will provide your facility with all the proper containers bags and secure dumpsters and develop and maintain a consistent and timely retrieval schedule. Or you can log in and request an immediate pick up at any time. We will be there in 24 hours or less – guaranteed.
Treatment of Pathological Waste
Pathological waste differs from most medical waste in that it has a higher moisture content. Most pathological waste is incinerated. Know what the difference is between incineration and cremation? There isn’t one,really. It’s mostly a matter of how humans regard the process. Incineration is soulless and industrial. Cremation is done in the context of a ceremony, often with friends and family present. But both processes basically burn off the moisture and all of the combustible material, leaving ash. The ash from cremation is often venerated or disposed of in a ceremony while the ash from incineration is packaged bound for a landfill.
Anatomical waste is 70-90 percent water so simple heating is not feasible. Autoclave treatment is technically feasible, but ethical, legal, cultural, religious and other considerations usually stop this from happening.
Anatomical waste includes organs, and amputated body parts as well as teeth and contiguous structures of bone and gum. Pathological waste that is not anatomical waste includes body fluids and their containers including fluids that come out of the body during surgery.
