What to do with Biowaste?


On this episode of The Cost of Everything we examine what happens to all the medical waste generated every year from hospitals, clinics, and now individuals wearing their PPE. Medical waste and its disposal was already a major undertaking before the pandemic, but has now ballooned following the adoption of Personal Protective Equipment like masks and gloves, by average citizens. Host Christy Ai spoke with Satish Sinha, Associate Director at Toxics Link, about the cost of disposing of toxic, hazardous, and medical waste and how much biowaste is produced every year.
