Hospital waste is one of the biggest problems in developing countries as most of the generated waste is directly dumped along the municipal waste or burnt openly, thus polluting the environment. Unfortunately, scarce data is available on the amounts, characteristics and management of the various types of wastes that are continuously generated by healthcare units in Pakistan. In this study, primary data was collected through comprehensive surveys, including questionnaire form, personal observations, formal and informal meetings while secondary data was collected from hospital's records. Average waste generation rate was 1.12 kg day-1 bed-1 and nearly one sweeper for seven beds. The studied hospitals generate approximately 2.9 tons waste day-1 which contain 12% infectious waste. Heavy metal analysis of incinerator ash reveals that the Zn and Pb were high among other metals. The present study showed that hospitals in district Faisalabad do not have any effective hospital waste management policy.
