Point of Generation

"Point of Generation" is managing each waste stream at the point where the waste is generated. The employee will then choose the proper container to place it in for disposal.

"Point of Generation" containers are examined for appropriateness of size, placement and contents. Generally, regulated medical waste containers contain a high percentage of non medical waste material, and solid waste containers contain a high percentage of recyclable material. Proper segregation substantially reduces the cost of disposing both waste streams. Revenues are available for certain recycled items and regulated medical waste cost is 5 times more expensive than solid waste.
