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.
