Can we bury biomedical waste?A huge concern is disposal of biomedical waste. At the moment, incineration is supposed to happen. One is not very sure if this is happening. We often see such waste dumped along with other waste.
Can we bury such waste? Will such waste decompose and can that be ever used for any purpose? Members who know the scientific background of biomedical waste may please give their views. If there is already some good experiment going on, please do give details, so that one can at least convince a few hospitals to understand such practices and adopt them, to the extent possible.
What really happens in the advanced countries? How do they deal with this problem?
