The improper disposal of home generated medical waste poses a potential health hazard to many, including family members, sanitation workers, people in the community, hotel housekeeping staffs and school personnel.
Although rare, diseases as serious as Hepatitis B and AIDS can also result from accidental needle sticks.
In addition, loose syringes thrown into your household trash can also be misused if they fall into the wrong hands. Moreover, these items can injure small children, pets and wildlife.
Please dispose of medical waste properly!
