Liquid biohazardous waste can be safely disposed of in a few different ways. The most common method is to treat it with bleach or sterilize it in an autoclave. However, liquids that contain bodily fluids and chemical waste should be handled differently. In this case, it is best to contact a medical waste disposal provider for assistance.
Once the liquid waste has been treated, it can be disposed of through the laboratory sink. It is important to take safety precautions when doing this, such as wearing a lab coat, gloves, and anti-splash goggles (or safety glasses with face protection). Additionally, care should be taken to minimize splashing and the sink should be rinsed thoroughly after discharging the waste. Solid waste should be placed in regulated cardboard boxes for medical waste that are lined with a red biohazard bag.
When the bag is full or has been autoclaved, it should be disposed of in the same manner. By following these steps, liquid biohazardous waste can be safely and effectively disposed of.
