Biohazard Waste Disposal: Using an Experienced Professional Service. When biohazard waste is left untreated, it possesses a risk to human health, animals, and the environment. Biohazard waste disposal requires a special set of skills and knowledge to keep staff, patients, and the public safe. Workers must be trained to handle biohazardous waste and the proper disposal methods. As well as have access to personal protection equipment such as gloves, masks, goggles, and even suits (if required) when transporting and treating biohazardous waste.
Biohazard waste is any type of waste that can contain elements that can be infectious or potentially infectious to humans, animals, the community, or the environment. Biohazardous waste can be generated from several facilities including but not limited to dental, pharmacy, home healthcare, veterinarians, funeral homes, coroners, research laboratories, physician’s offices, med spas, and tattoo or body piercing facilities. There are local, state, and federal guidelines designed for the handling, labeling, storage, transportation, and ultimate rendering of the waste as harmless for safe disposal.

Theoretically anyone who has a truck or trailer could advertise for medical waste disposal services, come to your facility pick up your waste and be on their way. What do you really know about that company?
There are some questions to ask to determine who is an experienced, professional biohazard waste disposal company.
The first one is easy Experienced; ask the company you are speaking with how long they have been in business. We recommend 10 years when establishing a biohazard waste disposal company as experienced. This let’s you know they have been through regulatory changes and understand the process of being compliant.
It also gives some hint that the biohazard waste disposal process is being followed according to laws and regulations. If an improper or illegal disposal process is being used by a company, it is unlikely they will get away with it for 10 + years without local, state, and federal authorities catching on.
