Bio Medical Waste Management
     Biomedical or hospital waste is potentially hazardous. A small amount of this when mixed with general waste can contaminate it and has a potential to start an epidemic. The government of India has enacted a law to reduce this threat. It puts the onus of disposal, entirely on the generator of waste.
   Enviro vigil has organized the system of hospital waste disposal for the city of Thane and its periphery. The facility started functioning on 15th March 2003, as a joint venture of Thane Municipal Corporation and ENVIRO-VIGIL. The organization is functioning efficiently for last five years. It is an ISO 9000 certified syatem. It takes care of more than 950 hospitals. The hospital staff is instructed to segregate waste properly.
