Hazmat Disposal

Medical wastes can be generated from routine exams in doctors’ offices, from surgical procedures at hospitals, or from research done in labs.  They may include sharps, wastes that can be treated on-site, normal wastes, medical wastes, or hazardous wastes.  In this lesson, students will analyze methods used for sorting these waste, discuss the disadvantages of incorrect disposal including cost of errors, and brainstorm methods to make sorting easier and more efficient.
