Biomedical waste is segregated at source in a strictly-implemented regimen, using color coded bins. Individual units send their biomedical waste to a central unit from where authorized agencies pick it up at regular intervals. They ensure the waste is treated and disposed of in a safe manner. Education and training form an important part of the effective implementation of disposal processes; they are also a critical indicator, not only from the environmental point of view but also from the standpoint of employee and patient safety. Hazardous and e-waste similarly are segregated at source and recycled by Authorized agencies.
