POST 00696E : GLASS SYRINGES DISPOSAL 12 July 2004 _______________________________ In middle-income countries, a number of vaccines are proposed in pre-filled single-dose glass syringes. Such countries do not always have the infrastructures and financial means of rich countries, and experience some of the same problems as developing countries, i.e. accessibility and poor development of the private sector. However if the use of this presentation of vaccines has some advantages in terms of security (limited handling, use of sterile material), it also has disadvantages such as an increase in the volume of waste and glass and metal waste disposal. This last point is of particular concern to us, because both glass and metal can neither be burnt nor incinerated at average temperature (like in the DeMonfort). We should be grateful to know the experience of TechNet members in handling large volumes of glass and metal waste, especially their disposal. Thank you.
