The Full form of BMW is Biomedical Waste. BMW is any kind of waste containing infectious or potentially infectious materials. It may also include waste associated with the generation of biomedical waste that visually appears to be of medical or laboratory origin (e.g., unused bandages, infusion kits, packaging, etc.), as well research laboratory waste containing biomolecules or organisms that are mainly restricted from environmental release. Biomedical waste is a type of biowaste. Biomedical waste may be liquid or solid. Examples of infectious waste include sharps, discarded blood, unwanted microbiological cultures and stocks, identifiable body parts (including those as a result of amputation), other human or animal tissue, discarded gloves, used bandages and dressings, other medical supplies that may have been in contact with blood and body fluids, and laboratory waste that exhibits the characteristics described above. Waste sharps include potentially contaminated used (and unused discarded) scalpels, needles, lancets and other devices capable of penetrating skin. Biomedical waste is generated from medical sources, biological, and activities, such as the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of diseases. Common producers or generators of biomedical waste include hospitals, nursing homes, emergency medical services, health clinics, medical research laboratories, offices of dentists, physicians, and veterinarians, home health care, and morgues or funeral homes.
