Hospital waste is a potential health hazards to the care workers, public, flora, fauna of the area. The problems of the waste disposal in the hospitals and other health care institutions have become issues of increasing concerns. This research article is to survey the practice of biomedical waste such as collection, storage, transportation, and disposal along with the amount of biomedical waste generated in two Hospitals of Gulbarga. The proper management methods have been employed in Government hospital. In Basaveshwara hospital there is no proper segregation of waste at the source of generation and all the wards don’t contain all the liners. In both the hospitals waste collected and disposed daily.
