The management of health care waste has become an urgent need to safeguard the public health from adverse effects caused due to improper management of healthcare waste. In context of Nepal, medical waste disposal has become even more difficult due to the use of disposal needles, syringes, and similar items. Majority of health care institutions do not practice safe waste handling, storage and disposal methods because of the lack of solution, lack of enforcement of laws, financially expensive.



Installation of individual treatment facilities by small healthcare units requires complex/high level management and comparatively high capital investment. Waste Service came with the complete solution of the bio medical waste prioritizing the health and environment focusing in non-burn technology with city based common treatment facility. Thus, a common treatment facility seems to be the only cost effective, Eco friendly, practicable and benchmark to enforce waste management rules and regulation.

Target Beneficiaries

Our aim to serve this innovation as a model innovation in the context of Nepal. We are aiming campaign about Hospital waste management in other cities, develop our public private partnership with other local government and Metropolitan cities. Create awareness and implement our solution. Moreover, health care institutes, local government, public living at Urban cities, landfill site community and municipal waste work are primary beneficiaries as well as crating jobs.

Mission and Vision

Our vision is to nullify the threats of bio medical waste for the promotion of health and sustainable development. Our innovation is city based common bio medical waste treatment facility in Public private partnership as a sustainable business model, simplify the complexity of waste management, provide cost effective and common solution. Enforce local government to formulate regulation about waste management and implement as well as partnership for sustainable development.

Innovation Description

Prior to starting service to any health institutions, we aware management, health professionals and waste handlers about the need and importance of health care waste through training. we encourage our clients to segregate their waste at the source by providing them with five color coded containers for different category of waste: Red for anatomical, soiled waste and pharmaceutical waste. Yellow for solid waste apart from sharps and glasses, Blue for glass products, green for biodegradable general waste and black for non-biodegradable general waste. There will be a separate metallic container for sharps. Unless and until the waste is segregated, we don’t accept it. we implementing internal collection and temporary storage at hospital level. At CTF, two autoclave of 511 litres and 420 litres capacity is used for non-incinerable waste which operates at either 121oC, 15 psi & 45 minutes. One concrete chamber for sharp waste disposal is also included within the facility.Anatomical waste will be disposed through deep burial within the facility. This burial chamber will be used for other suitable waste also. After treatment, the recyclables are recycled, the biodegradable and residue are land filled. After treatment, the recyclables are recycled, the biodegradable wastes are managed by composting and the remains are land filled. We are also regularly monitoring and supervising healthcare Institutes waste management activities and reporting to the local government.

Competitive Advantage

Most of the hospital using municipal waste vehicles to settle their waste in the context of Nepal. Before our innovation, few hospital implemented single hospital waste management system but very rare hospital implementing. Few organization working at single hospital level to manage waste but lack of investment and sustainable business model such project only working till they received grant. Our innovation is wider in range so this is common, cost effective, simplified complexity of waste management and working as city based project. Our innovation partnering local government for the infrastructure development and through our innovation local government enforcing laws and regulation of Hospital waste management for all the producer of bio medical hazardous waste. Our model is unique in the context of Nepal and working as practical and environmentally sound for the operation.

Planned Goals and Milestones

We are working to scale up and replicate our innovation in the other cities of Nepal where many health care institute are located. We are focusing on the urban cities of Nepal, Metropolitan city in the first phase and Sub Metropolitan city as in second phase. Our Mission is to solve the problem of bio medical waste, stop and prevent the disposal of healthcare waste mixing with general municipal waste. Public private partnership with local government for the sustainable development.
