Household bandages and wound dressings
- To prevent accidental exposure, soiled bandages, wound dressings, garments and linens should be placed in securely fastened plastic trash bags.
- Larger items should be sealed in sheet plastic with strong tape.
- Make sure the outside of the bag or plastic wrap is free of visible contamination.
- Store packaged waste away from pets and children.
- Put the packaged waste in your regular trash on the day your trash is picked up or taken to the landfill.
