Abstract
In modern society, everything around us and everything that we use becomes useless during some period and it becomes a waste. In nature, materials and energy are used again in food chains so that those cycles do not produce any waste. Developing new technologies, man created a lot of new synthetic materials that did not exist in nature before and nature cannot deal with them by itself. Every institution and every person is making some kind of waste. Medical institutions make a lot of different waste during their work, and if it is not dealt with it well, it can pollute environment and it is very dangerous for employees, patients, visitors and unauthorized persons dealing with the waste. Dangerous medical waste demands special process methods and final delay.
