Pathological Waste Disposal
Pathological waste is considered regulated medical waste.
Examples of this waste is human and or animal tissue or body parts.
MERI provides disposal for many clinics, research facilities, morgues, funeral homes and farms that have pathology waste.
Soft pathological waste, like tissue, as well as human body fluids and research animal waste, are treated and disposed of at MERI’s licensed treatment facility. Hard pathological waste, such as bones, are disposed of by incineration.
In addition, MERI disposes of infectious waste that is often used at facilities that work with pathological waste. Examples of this biohazard material includes sharps scalpel blades, pipettes, and discarded glass or rigid vials containing infectious agents.
