Autoclaved waste

Definition

Waste that has been decontaminated to eliminate the risk of infection from infectious waste substances. The decontaminated waste stream must not be mixed with a stream that has not been decontaminated. The minimum requirement for the processing of decontaminated waste is disposal by incineration. The decontaminated waste must meet the following conditions:

  • The decontamination process must comply with the guidelines of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM).
  • The waste must be registered under the EURAL code 18 01 04 (wastes whose collection and disposal is not subject to special requirements in order to prevent infection).
  • The receiving party must be in possession of the relevant licence.
  • The waste must be incinerated separately (i.e. not mixed with other waste flows such as domestic waste).

Removal

The above requirements mean that autoclaved waste must be removed separately in a container.

It must not be taken to Attero or Stainkoeln in Groningen.

Requests for the emptying or cleaning of waste containers and for extra temporary containers can be submitted to Facility Management. Defects, complaints and changes can also be reported to Facility Management.

Processing

Autoclaved waste is incinerated separately. Mixing with other waste streams is not permitted. This waste is incinerated at a licensed incineration plant.
