We cater for sectors including dental, pharmacy, nursing homes, medical practices, hospitals and beauty salons.
We follow EU guidelines on the safe management of hazardous waste and our drivers are HazChem trained and certified.
All HRW must be put into a UN approved container before collection for final disposal. For regular soft HRW the appropriate containment is a yellow clinical waste bag.
KeyGreen can provide specially designed metal pedal bins for use at your facility for use with yellow UN approved bags for HRW.
As well as the appropriate UN approved primary packaging clinical waste must be transported in UN approved wheeled bins.
KeyGreen can provide 770 litre, 440 litre or 360 litre UN approved wheeled bins as part of the service for transport of your HRW to final disposal.
Medical instruments such as scalpels and syringes, as well as broken glass or other sharp objects from a healthcare must be placed into a suitable UN approved sharps container before transport for final disposal.
If the sharps are deemed to be cytotoxic/cytostatic or anatomical, the containers must have the appropriately coloured lid.
These containers are used when disposing of HRW which may contain liquids as well as waste from laboratories that does not contain chemical residues.
Blood administration sets and disposable suction liners should also be disposed of using rigid containers.
There are three types of Healthcare Risk Waste (HRW) generated in Irish healthcare facilities. These are regular infectious waste, cytotoxic/cytostatic waste and recognizably anatomical waste.
