How does it work?

First contact

We conduct an analysis over the phone to confirm we may be dealing with Covid-19 infected waste.

Site visit

We visit the location where waste is being generated to assess the Covid-19 waste requirements and determine the most cost-effective solution for our clients based on their needs.

Quote generation

We send the client a quote based on the requirements and information gathered during the initial assessment for either a one-off collection or regular service.

Containers provided

We provide our clients with the necessary containers and biohazardous tape for storing their Covid-19 waste for scheduled collection.

Covid-19 waste collection

Our biohazardous waste compliant Averda vehicles arrive on a schedule, or pre-arranged time, to transport the generated Covid-19 waste to the nearest treatment facility.

Covid-19 waste treatment

We treat the Covid-19 waste in either an ETD facility (Electro-Thermal Deactivation) or one of our incinerators and issue a safe disposal ticket for the treated waste to the client.

Disposal of medical waste

Once the Covid-19 waste has been treated, it is transported to Vlakfontein, the only hazardous waste landfill of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, where it is safely disposed of.

End-to-end tracking

We track the entire disposal of Covid-19 waste, from cradle to grave, via our RFID technology, True Track, to ensure safety and compliance.
