The New Indian Express, New Delhi, Feb 2017 : With the State extending the biomedical
waste management programme to all Government-run hospitals, the health
facilities have been asked to obtain authorisation from the Odisha State
Pollution Control Board (OSPCB) for disposal of waste in an organised way.
While earlier the waste management facility was available in three medical
college and hospitals, Shishu Bhavan, Capital Hospital, Rourkela Government
Hospital (RGH) and all district headquarters hospitals (DHHs), now it is
provided to all 27 sub-divisional hospitals, 79 area hospitals and 377 CHCs
