For years, Curtis Bay has worked with healthcare facilities to safely collect, manage, and dispose of medical waste. As millions of vaccines create used needles, syringes and vials, this waste cannot be left unattended and must be disposed of properly as medical waste, given it is not suitable for landfills. Whether you are preparing for an increase in sharps waste, require more frequent pickups, or need additional supplies, we are here to support you.
With the recent outbreaks of the Coronavirus, Curtis Bay has developed special handling procedure to ensure the safety of our customers, employees and public. As of now, the waste generated from treating a patient with Coronavirus does not require any regulatory special handling. As a precaution, we ask that you follow the procedures outlined below when handling waste generated from the treatment of these patients.
