As first responders, fire departments provide emergency medical services and generate medical waste. This medical waste is typically transported back to the fire station for collection and disposal. Proper disposal of any biohazardous waste is crucial for avoiding accidental infections or exposure, which can lead to disastrous lawsuits. The Biovastum SBW™ allows fire departments to neutralize sharps and red bag waste at your location, reducing your expenses and eliminating liability risk.

Many facilities overlook or underestimate their liability risks when it comes to medical waste. Any facility generating biohazardous waste is responsible for that waste until it is rendered neutral - even once it is in the possession of a disposal service. In other words, if an accident occurs when your waste is in transport to a disposal center or even at the disposal center, you will be held liable. The Biovastum SBW™ allows you to neutralize all waste at your facility, absolving you of all liability concerns. Furthermore, the Biovastum SBW™ is more cost-efficient than traditional disposal methods.
