Disposing of Rapid Testing- The Importance of Doing This Correctly
22 March 2021
As the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic continues, it is vital that we dispose of any waste associated with the virus safely and securely. This helps minimise the risk of cross-contamination/ infection and works to keep you, your employees, customers, and pupils safe (depending on your workplace).
Associated COVID-19 waste must be disposed of safely and securely- and that's where we come in! We can provide you with all of the equipment you need to store your waste before collection. The waste will then be transferred to a specialist facility. In terms of COVID-19 waste, it is typically disposed of via incineration, making the whole process for your workplace completely safe and hygienic.
Waste associated with rapid testing includes:
Covid test swabs
Lateral flow devices
PPE (Gloves, masks etc.)
