Establishing good practices for proper handling and disposal of health care waste is an important part of the health care delivery system. Expired medicines, contraceptives, and cleaning solvents require specific attention from health care workers in order to ensure that the waste is disposed of in a safe, effective manner that does not harm the environment. This short animated video discusses the importance of following recommended waste disposal practices, and outlines specific steps for health care workers to take when disposing of pharmaceutical waste at their facilities.
