Print

Bio-medical wastes (BMW) are generated from health care activities and have the potential to spread diseases. The Board regulates BMW as per the provisions of the Bio-medical Wastes Management Rules, 2016, which have laid down norms for storage, treatment and disposal of BMWs. 

All health care establishments (HCEs) generating and handling BMWs are required to obtain Authorisation from the WBPCB. The authorisation is one time for non-bedded occupiers. Pl see the page "Biomedical Waste Authorisation" for details on authorisation requirements and procedures. In addition to obtaining authorization, all HCEs coming under the purview of the rules are required to submit Annual Returns on bio-medical waste generation and disposal to the State Board within 30th June every year as per Form IV of the Bio-medical Waste Management Rules, 2016. 

As per the provision of the rules it is mandatory for all HCEs to treat BMWs generated by them either on their own or through some authorized Common BMW Treatment Facility (CBWTF).

All the six facilities have autoclaves, shredders and incinerators for treatment of the bio-medical wastes. The operators collect BMWs (segregated into incinerable and autoclavable) from their member HCEs and transport the wastes to their treatment and disposal facilities. All CBWTF operators are required to submit Annual Reports to the Board.

The Board inspects various HCEs and CBWTFs and issues directions to defaulters. The Board also compiles the Annual Reports submitted by the HCEs and CBWTFs and submits the consolidated report to the Central Pollution Control Board.
