MEDICAL WASTE

Medical waste generated by health and dental care facilities is disposed in secure containers, which are specially marked and segregated from regular trash. Arlington Disposal Company collects and disposes of medical waste which consists of blood, needles, syringes, etc. This regulation does not apply to medical wastes generated by individuals at home or when traveling. These individuals should be careful handling hazardous waste by disposing the waste in a covered puncture-resistant container and then taping the lid securely before disposal.

DO NOT DISPOSE OF MEDICAL WASTE IN A RECYCLING BIN
