Some spent material which cannot be reused or recycled and that is intended to be discarded is considered hazardous waste if it meets certain regulatory criteria.
UK Healthcare’s Hospital and Clinics generate specific types of waste which require special handling and disposal per local, state and federal regulations.
Many waste streams are generated at UK that while not regulated as hazardous waste still require the application of thorough and careful management standards. Examples of such wastes include those noted as universal, used oil, PCB-containing and Non-RCRA Regulated Wastes.
In rare instances some non-hazardous liquid waste may be acceptable for drain disposal and some non-hazardous solid waste may be acceptable for disposal as normal garbage. In such cases there are steps available to request a special waste disposal review.
