HealthBeacon gets the green light for new waste management facility

DIGITAL health technology company HealthBeacon have been granted permission by Dublin City council for a small-scale healthcare waste management facility.

The company intends on accepting its own waste bins on-site at their Naas Road HQ premises, which they will supply to domestic customers for processing and sterilization.

Plans contain proposals for a maximum of 20 tonnes of waste bins, which will be accepted on-site per annum.

In May, the medication adherence technology company launched a new Covid-19 support offering for patients on injectable therapies, which is available to Laya Healthcare’s 600,000 members.

HealthBeacon has developed the world’s first Injection care management system for patients that self-administer injectable medication in their homes.

The company say this eases the burden of managing patients’ injectable medications from home through their Smart Sharps Bin Technology.

According to the planning application, sharps waste (contained in the bins) will be temporarily stored on-site in regulated containers before being dispatched to an appropriate third-party waste treatment facility.

The empty bins will be put through a sterilization process on-site.

A small processing area consisting of wash room and a clean room will be developed at the existing premises for the purposes of carrying out this activity.

Cleaned bins will then be reused by the applicant in the course of their business.

A small waste storage area will be contained within the wash room.

A waste licence application will be required for the proposed activity.

The company will make an application for a waste licence to the EPA in conjunction with the submission of a planning application to the planning authority.
