Medical Waste Disposal

Our medical waste disposal solutions are customized to best fit the specific needs of your organization.

The challenge as we see it

The majority of medical waste generated in the U.S. is regulated at the state and local level, so medical and pharmaceutical waste needs to be managed in a way to ensure your staff’s safety and your organization’s regulatory compliance.

Our differentiated value

We apply the same industry-leading customer service to our medical waste customers as we do to our heavily regulated hazardous waste customers. This includes contracts that are easier to live with and access to a broad range of water and energy services.

  • Dual waste permit allowing incineration of waste that is both hazardous and medical
  • Unparalleled service evidenced by industry-leading customer satisfaction
  • Full sustainability partner offering water, waste and energy solutions
  • Personalized service with an assigned team to service your location each time

Our solutions for medical waste disposal

Our medical waste disposal solutions will help your organization safely and properly manage hazardous materials. Medical waste treatment can take place at our facilities if the waste is classified as both medical and RCRA, or at audited and approved third-party partner facilities for wastes classified as medical. First, we conduct an initial medical waste review and breakdown analysis to help your company reduce waste and minimize your costs. Once your unique needs are determined, our partners train your staff on waste stream segregation, procedures and safety.
