Special handling is needed for the treatment of the management of solid medical waste, especially the hazardous and toxic wastes (B3) at the hospital so that the expected effects of this medical solid waste can be minimized. At the West Pasaman Regional General Hospital, the management of solid medical waste is carried out using a third party. In 2018, The hospital cooperated with PT Noor Annisa Kemikal with the number of the cooperation agreement Number 660/431 / RSUD-2018 and Number 0302 / NAK / PSM / II / 18 on 01-02-2018 and in 2019, with PT Andalas Bumi Lestari with the Agreement Number of Hazardous and Toxic Waste Treatment Services Number 445/003 / PKS / RSUD-2019 and Number 003.22 / ABL-PKS / II / 2019. In the implementation of management by third parties, the Hospital has to provide a quite large amount of budget for services for the management of solid medical waste by a third party. In order to make the existing budget effective and minimize the Budget absorption, the efforts taken are internal management systems so that some solid medical waste (especially Infusion Tubes) does not need to be handled by the third party and by utilizing existing technological equipment instead. Based on existing data, the West Pasaman Regional General Hospital undertakes efforts to process solid medical waste carried out internally by the Hospital itself by using a sterilization system using the existing technology, namely sterilizers. It is expected that the use of Sterilization technology can yield budget effectiveness approximately IDR. 168,890,000. - per year.  This is done specifically for infusion tubes with a large density and considered the safest to be sterilized and recycled.
