Waste-Disposal Units, Glass Crushing

Definition : Waste-disposal units specially designed for destroying glassware (e.g., vials, bottles), either filled or empty, before disposal; they may also crush glass syringes (without needles). These units typically consist of a small cabinet with a container for the glassware to be crushed and either a crank (manual operation) or a motor (automatic operation) to crush the glass. The finely crushed glass is then rinsed and disposed of for recycling, while the waste liquid is transferred into an external waste container. Glass-crushing waste disposal units are typically constructed of stainless steel; dedicated, simpler units intended only for crushing syringe barrels during field use (e.g., immunization) are also available.
