Hazardous Proper Disposal

1/2/2024 (Permalink)

Bio-hazardous waste is more common than you think. Sometimes you dispose of these items yourself improperly, not knowing that it is illegal and unsafe to do so. Bio-hazards are when something is a risk to the human health or environment. Some examples of bio-hazards are:

  • Animal waste
  • Human bodily fluids
  • Pathological waste
  • Sharps waste
  • Human blood and blood products

Without the proper clean-up of this waste, many things can happen. For example:

  • These items can be infectious, if not disposed of properly could cause negative health effects. The severity of the situation would be based on the items that were incorrectly disposed.
  • If sharps waste is not disposed of properly, the risk of someone being poked by these needles is high. This could result in diseases being transmitted.
  • Hazardous materials could pollute water if sent to landfills.
  • Materials can damage pipes and storage drains if improperly disposed down sinks or toilets.

Luckily, hazardous waste clean-up is one of the many services that SERVPRO of Grays Harbor & Pacific Counties offers. If you need any assistance, call us today 360-533-8667.
