Tracking

It is the legal responsibility of every healthcare facility to ensure the hazardous waste it generates is properly treated and disposed even after it has been removed from its facility. To this end, ABC Sanitation has teamed up with a technical partner to track your waste from its source of generation to its treatment and safe disposal to ensure transparency and compliance.

Storage Facilities

We have available at our treatment facility cold storage rooms where your healthcare waste generated can be safely stored prior to treatment.

Safe Treatment & Disposal

Our treatment facility is equipped with an autoclave and an incinerator system for the safe treatment and disposal of all hazardous healthcare waste

Autoclave

On-site is a T1000 autoclave system which will be used to sterilize and shred all infectious hazardous healthcare waste. The shredded sterilized waste will then be properly disposed at a sanitary landfill site.

Incinerator

All pathological healthcare waste will be safely incinerated. Incineration has the benefit of reducing the volume of the waste by 90%. Our incinerator includes a secondary chamber which comes with an added advantage of preventing dioxins from cracking into smaller more reactive molecules. The resulting ash will then be safely disposed of in a sanitary landfill site.

Our planet gains inhabitants numbering to 77 million people a year.

It is estimated that each year we generate 3% more waste than the previous year.

When you throw plastic bags and other plastic materials in the ocean, it kills as many as 1 million sea creatures annually.

Glass bottles are the worst thing to throw in a landfill as it is estimated they will take 1 million years to decompose.

It’s not just what goes in the bin that counts as waste – water can be wasted, too. A single leaky tap in your house can waste as much as 5,000 litres of water a year.
