You Have Medical Waste at Home
It is true that some medical waste is generated at domestic level. These include bandages, syringes, razor blades, empty containers of medication and many more. Manzini News pleads with you never to dare put it in the same plastic bag (black in colour) that you use for disposal of general waste. There are special plastic bags (red in colour) that are utilized for disposal of medical waste. Please get yourself the red garbage bags from the shops, load your waste, dial 800 2004 or 2505 7000 (Council 24/7 Call Centre) and leave your details. The Municipal Council of Manzini collects medical waste every Tuesday and Friday. However, please make it a point that you notify Council a day before the scheduled collection days mentioned above.
