Biomedical waste, also called clinical waste, is the by-product of hospitals, nursing homes, research laboratories etc Infectious waste that can be solids, liquids and waste from the laboratory are termed as biomedical wastes.

Biomedical waste may be primarily classified as Hazardous and Non Hazardous wastes. Further, the biomedical waste is categorized by WHO and also under The Biomedical Waste (Management & Handling.

Biomedical waste is not limited to medical instruments; it includes medicine, waste stored in red biohazard bags, and materials used for patient care, such as cotton and bandaids. The most serious effect that biomedical waste has on our seas is the discharge of poisons into the waters that could then be consumed by ocean life creatures.

The Environmental Management Act (EMA) prohibits the introduction of waste into the environment in a way that will cause pollution, except in accordance with a regulation, permit, approval or code of practice issued under the Act.

The Hazardous Waste Regulation (HWR) addresses the proper handling and disposal of hazardous wastes, under the EMA. GFM Environmental Services is an industry leader in the collection, transportation, treatment and final disposal of biomedical and healthcare waste materials.

The proper disposal of biohazard waste is the core of GFM Environmental business operations. Thousands of customers across Canada have chosen GFM Environmental for all their biohazard. InBritish Columbians disposed of an average of kg of municipal solid waste per person—down 61 kg per person since While BC is still experiencing an overall decreasing trend in disposal rates, is the first year (since the current tracking method began in ) where an increase over the previous year was observed.

The quantity of biomedical waste generated per bed per day will vary depending upon the type of health problems, the type of care provided and the hospital waste management practices. It varies from 1–2 kg in developing countries to kg in developed countries such as USA [ 3, 4 ].
