Hi Jill,
I think the only other option is landfill, or do you have something else in mind?

Dear SuSanA Members.

Certain ULBs feel that Controlled Incineration, may be done for PPE items that can be segregated.
All others to go to Safe secure, Sanitary Landfill.
It is here caution is to be afforded, because at most sites, the decision takes longer time.

Well wishes.
