Warangal City is now facing a new problem of Health Hazard due to the untreated Biomedical waste. Hospitals and Research Institutions are dumping huge quantities of Biomedical Waste and no one either the authorities of any organization is coming forward to take control of the situation.
This has become the focus as the dumping is absolutely haphazard, without considering that the area could be a residential area, or a highly populated place. The area like the Vijaya Talkies lane is one of the place where a huge amount of untreated Biomedical waste is just disposed.
Environmentally the Biomedical Waste should not get mixed with the sewage. This is what exactly is happening. Large portion of the city sewage flows through open drain, and that’s why when it rains the Biomedical waste gets mixed with the sewage.
Thoughts are put around and the hospital as suggested to set up a waste disposal facility.
Another serious factor is that both normal and the biomedical waste are mixed and dumped together. Normal waste may not but the biomedical waste does have the capacity to pose threat. The Rag Pickers are very vulnerable in such situation.
