Proper Handling Of Medical Wastes: Crucial Aspect Of Environmental Protection

Medical wasteAn aspect of waste management procedure that has often been largely unattended to but which constitutes a major sensitive angle in waste management is the medical wastes generation and its disposal.

Medical waste is so sensitive an area that if not well managed can actually cause more damage than we try to prevent especially if the germs find their way back into the community.

This revelation was made by Mr Muyiwa Kushimo, an expert in medical waste management, at a meeting with officials of the Osun Waste Management Agency (OWMA).

He observed that, the State of Osun in its drive to achieve an epidemic free society should incorporate effective medical waste management and disposal, as co-mingling of domestic and medical wastes constitute a serious anomaly.
