Properly disposing of certain kinds of waste often involves medical waste incinerators. Due to stringent environmental laws, they must adhere to federal and state guidelines that dictate exactly what type of waste needs to be incinerated and how medical waste generators need to go about storing, transporting, and disposing of that waste. If you’re unaware of these laws—or simply misunderstand their rules—you are still liable to face fines for non-compliance. Therefore, it’s important to know everything you can associated with the medical waste incineration process.
