Healthcare Waste Services

Healthcare is one the most regulated industries in our country today. And with your major focus being providing the best care possible for your patients, keeping in compliance with federal, state, and local regulations can be a challenge. Here is how Waste Management can help. Our healthcare industry experts work with healthcare customers to create affordable and safe customized programs to collect and dispose of your medical, solid, and hazardous waste. Waste Management helps healthcare organizations like yours adopt sustainable strategies that will help keep cost down while keeping in compliance with safety and environmental regulations.

Utilizing best practices developed over decades from providing services to a multitude of different industries; Waste Management can help your healthcare facility further the sustainability goals that are so important to your organization, patients, community, and our planet. Our experts will assist in streamlining your operations to minimize waste and reduce cost. Does your facility treat items that really are solid waste as “red bag” or regulated medical waste? A good medical waste minimization program can help reduce total waste costs. We can help develop and execute such programs designed to meet your specific needs. And if your facility needs a little extra attention, our Sustainability Services division recently launched a new web-training portal for use by our healthcare customers for educating their employees on health and safety issues associated with medical waste.

Whether you choose a customized program that can reduce cost and keep your facility in compliance; our scheduled medical, solid and hazardous waste collection services; or our medical waste disposal-by-mail program, Waste Management makes waste disposal for healthcare facilities easier and more convenient. That way, you can focus more on what matters the most – the care you provide for your patients.
