What is trash liner?
is a plastic bag placed in a trash can to hold the waste and keep the container clean of consumables. It is used for the collection and storage of all kinds of laboratory waste. It is easy to dispose of centrally and is aesthetically pleasing. Trash can liners
are made of high-quality LDPE, with strong toughness, pulling resistance, beautiful color, environmental protection, and odorless characteristics. Can liners
have a unique sealing process, and this seal is flat and will not leak. Trash liners
are generally made of tough polyethylene, and a few are also available in PP polypropylene. The thickness of one side is generally more than 3mil (i.e. 7.6 silk on one side). Of course, it can be made thicker than 3 mils according to actual needs.
a. The trash liner
is not suitable for holding large quantities of corrosive chemical liquids; it is only used to collect the waste generated in the laboratory daily. If you want to collect corrosive waste liquids, you need to use special containers for recycling corrosive waste liquids.
b. Trash liners
are not suitable for collecting all routine laboratory wastes, and some sharp objects may puncture the bags and allow them to leak. Which chemical waste the bag is suitable for collection, is determined by the material and thickness of the bag. If the bag is made of polyethylene, then chemical wastes that are prone to chemical reactions in polyethylene should not be collected in such chemical-proof garbage bags. For example, aqua regia, chromic acid, chlorosulfonic acid, nitric acid, sulfuric acid, ethylbenzene, chloroethane, chloromethane, chlorinated solvents, chloroacetone, chlorotoluene, chloroform, methyl acetate, Freon, butanone, etc. The above examples are for reference only. For actual use, please use samples for experiments and confirm before use.
Laboratory waste disposal system
The regulations for laboratory waste management are developed to strengthen the management of clinical laboratory medical waste disposal, prevent cross-contamination, safeguard human health and safety as well as protect the environment. This ensures that laboratory waste can be disposed of effectively and safely to prevent waste or secondary pollution of the environment. This regulation applies to waste generated from sampling, test analysis, and daily management of laboratories.
Trash can liners
A. Daily laboratory waste
a. The following waste liquids cannot be mixed. They are peroxides and organic matter; cyanide, sulfide, hypochlorite, and acid; hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid, and other volatile acids and non-volatile acids; concentrated sulfuric acid, sulfonic acid, hydroxy acid, polyphosphoric acid, and other acids; ammonium salts, volatile amines, and bases.
b. Waste liquids such as mercaptans and amines that emit odors and toxic gases such as cyanide and phosphine that occur, as well as waste liquids such as carbon disulfide and ether that are highly flammable, should be treated appropriately to prevent leakage and should be disposed of as soon as possible.
c. Waste liquids containing explosive substances such as peroxides and nitroglycerine should be handled with caution and should be disposed of as soon as possible.
d. Infectious waste such as specimen tubes, pipette tips, sample plates, etc. should be soaked in 2000mg/L disinfectant solution for more than 2 hours and then sorted into yellow plastic bags and labeled, collected by the cleaning department, and handed over to the designated company for disposal, and make a good registration.
e. Disposable cotton swabs, cotton balls, gauze, gloves, etc. used in the work should be put into yellow plastic bags and labeled with biosafety markings after use, collected in a unified manner, and handed over to the designated company for disposal.
f. Test table tops and spikers should be wiped with 75% alcohol and cleaned with water to avoid corrosion of the table top and spikers with disinfectant.
B. Inorganic waste
a. For mercury-containing waste liquid, because of its high toxicity, it will become a few more toxic organic mercuries after the action of microorganisms, and so on. Therefore, the treatment must be fully safe, and can be treated by sulfide co-precipitation, activated carbon adsorption, or ion exchange resin method.
b. For the waste liquid containing heavy metals, the heavy metal ions should be converted into water-insoluble hydroxide or sulfide salts by hydroxide co-precipitation or sulfide co-precipitation, and then removed by co-precipitation.
c. For waste liquids containing oxidizing agents and reducing agents, in principle, waste liquids containing oxidizing agents and reducing agents should be collected separately. However, when it is not dangerous to mix them, they can be collected together.
d. For acid, alkali, and salt waste liquids, in principle, they should be collected separately. However, if there is no obstruction, they can be neutralized with each other or used to treat other waste liquids.
C. Working procedure
a. Laboratories should be strictly divided into contaminated, semi-contaminated, and clean areas.
b. You should clarify that domestic waste and medical waste are handled differently and collected separately. Medical waste is mainly divided into infectious waste, injury waste, and chemical waste.
c. The color of domestic waste bags for black, and medical waste for yellow. Requirements to ensure that the medical waste bags are leak-proof, anti-rupture, anti-perforation, the outside of the text should be described, and medical waste generic warning icons.
d. Special sharps boxes must be used when holding sharp instruments, such as needles, to ensure that the trash liner will not break, leak, or be punctured.
e. The designated biosafety manager is responsible for instruction and training in biosafety techniques and knowledge and conducting frequent biosafety inspections.
f. Cleaning staff is responsible for collecting and transferring our medical waste, and handing over, recording, and signing off with the transfer point (type, quantity, packaging) to ensure that it is properly placed.
g. High-risk waste must be disinfected when it is transferred out.
h. The transfer process should prevent packaging breakage, waste loss, leakage, spreading and resale. Prevent medical waste from coming into direct contact with humans.
D. Medical waste disposal process
a. Discarded specimens and their containers should be stored in special airtight dirtbags (boxes) that do not leak, and be centralized and treated as medical waste at least twice a day.
b. All medical waste in the laboratory is packed in yellow garbage bags and domestic waste is packed in black garbage bags.
c. Discarded blood specimens should be disposed of harmlessly along with the test tubes.
d. Various specimens from the microbiology laboratory, such as strains, cultures and other wastes, must be inactivated before being shipped out of the laboratory. Items to be shipped out of the laboratory for inactivation must be placed in special closed containers.
e. Single-use blood collection needles or other sharps should be packed in the sharps box after use and then disposed of by the cleaning department centrally according to medical waste.
f. Hoods, hats, and gloves should not be reused and disposed of harmlessly in a posterior yellow trash liner.
E. Novel coronavirus wastes
a. Medical waste special bags, and sharps boxes should have warning signs on the outer surface, before containing medical waste, should be carefully checked to ensure that it is not broken, no leakage. Medical waste collection bucket with a foot pedal type. Each bag, sharps box with or paste the Chinese label, label content includes medical waste generated by the unit, the department, the date of generation, category, and in particular, marked "new coronavirus infection of pneumonia”.
b. Medical waste is collected separately. Infectious waste such as throat swabs and other respiratory specimens after testing is disposed of in a special medical waste bin with a double-layer yellow medical waste bag, 3/4 full when the double-layer yellow medical waste bag goose neck wrapped, sprayed with 75% alcohol on the surface of the medical waste bag, the experimental process such as the use of sharps (yyxq including needles, pocket knives, metal and slides, etc.) directly disposed of in the sharps box, all the above medical waste by pressure steam All the above medical waste should be sterilized by pressure steam before leaving the laboratory. The effect of pressure steam sterilization should be monitored and recorded.
