Have you ever wondered how much money you’re spending on disposing of your biohazard waste? If so, then this article is for you! Here are some tips to help reduce cost when it comes to these services.

What is biohazard waste?

Biohazardous waste, also called infectious waste (such as blood, body fluids, and human cell lines), is waste contaminated with potentially infectious agents or other materials that are deemed a threat to public health or the environment.

How Much Does It Cost to Dispose of Biohazard Waste?

There are a few factors a biohazard waste disposal company must consider before providing a quote for your biohazard waste disposal service.

  1. Location
  2. The reason location plays a big factor in your medical waste disposal cost is.
  3. Drivers Time
  4. Fuel Cost
  5. Transportation Cost, mileage, maintenance, wear, and tear
  6. Usually, the further you are from a major metropolitan area, the more your service will cost.

Tips for Reducing Biohazard Waste Disposal Cost

  1. If you have other companies in the same building or near you that need medical waste disposal, you can often save money by using the same service provider.
  2. Consider less frequent, or more frequent service. If you are getting weekly service for one box, ask what the price would be for four boxes once a month.
  3. Properly segregating biohazardous waste, the wrong waste type in the wrong container could potentially lead to fines and other legal troubles. Putting regular waste in a biohazardous waste bin is unnecessary and will increase cost. Proper segregation is a must for all generators of medical waste.
  4. Bundle services, if your facility needs biohazardous waste disposal services, shredding services, and has compliance training needs ask what the cost would be if you bundled services with one company.
