Community Health Services personnel inspect and permit facilities that generate, transport, store or treat biomedical waste through processes other than incineration. The objective of the biomedical waste program is to protect health care workers, environmental service staff, waste haulers and the general public from risks associated with potentially infectious biomedical waste.
