Our hazardous waste shredders are perfectly suited for the chemically aggressive material in your hospital waste. After the shredding process, the material can be optimally utilised thermally or disposed of together with municipal solid waste once it has been sterilised. The shredding is so effective that the granulate does not give any indications of the source material. Hospital waste consists of very different types of waste and requires special treatment during disposal due to the presence of infectious and...

While some or most hospital waste may be harmless, it is difficult to distinguish such harmless waste from infectious waste. As a result, all of the waste from a hospital must be treated as if it is harmful.
