Medical waste is usually generated in hospitals, clinics, blood banks, or other such health or medical related facilities. If they are not properly handled, they may ultimately run high risks of infections and may become hazards.

If you don’t need a thing, donate it so someone else can use it. A few stores have a buy-back program. Before you purchase a new gadget at a store, ask the store if they’ll buy back your old camera, laptop, or any other electronic.
