Biomedical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in London
When you ask most of the world what they know about London, they're almost certain to respond with something about the London Bridge, the Tube, Big Ben, the House of Parliament, the London Eye, or great Indian food. But when you ask the people of Western Ontario about London, they think of “The Forest City," founded in 1836 and located at the forks of the Thames River in southwest Ontario, Canada. Like ten other cities in the world, London was named after Britain's capital city.
It earned its nickname because it was built in the middle of a forest. While many trees were cleared to meet the construction demands of the World Wars, the city currently employs a robust reforestation strategy - replanting 5,000 trees to more than replace the 1,500 trees removed annually due to poor health.
Located approximately two hours southwest of Toronto, the city of just over 400,000 is home to the University of Western Ontario, Fanshawe College, and several hospitals (including a University Hospital). While London is host to a number of musical and artistic festivals and exhibitions that contribute to a strong tourism industry, its economic activity is centered around education, insurance, information technology, healthcare and medical research.
Much of the life sciences and biotechnology-related research is conducted or supported by the University of Western Ontario, which contributes approximately $1.5 billion annually to the local economy. The largest employer in the area is the London Health Sciences Centre, which employs 10,555 people. And for you Beliebers out there, Justin Bieber was born in London's St. Joseph's Hospital in 1994!

Why were healthcare faculties using disposable containers for healthcare waste that added to landfills and occupational injury?
