Top Reasons You Need Biohazard Waste Management

Top Reasons You Need Biohazard Waste Management. There are many reasons why you may need biohazard waste management. One of the most popular reasons is that you’re a healthcare professional or someone in a medical field. You might also be a veterinarian, a funeral home, or a mortician. In any case, there are laws in place that require you to dispose of the medical waste properly you may have a company that can take care of your biohazard waste responsibly and legally. If you don’t have one already, here are some things to keep in mind when choosing a company for biohazard waste management.

Why do you need Biohazard Waste Management?

If you generate medical or biohazardous waste, unless you have your own treatment plant onsite, you will need a biohazard waste management company. This is the best option to make sure you are staying compliant with current laws and regulations. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing a company for biohazard waste management:

There are a few things to know when you are looking for a biohazard waste disposal company, the main thing is, not all companies are created equal. There are four basic types of companies you could run into when calling around for a quote. Those are,

Biohazard Waste Lead Generators

Lead generators may have a misleading company name that allows you to assume that they are the waste management company, however, you can tell if they are a lead generator if they hand off your information to another company for the quote.

Biohazard Waste Brokers

Brokers make their profit by charging you more and paying the third-party hauler less. They charge you more than the hauler will do the work for. If you get the sense you are speaking with a broker, it is always better to call around and compare services.

Getting answers to these questions will alert you as to whether you are dealing with a broker:

Do you own the trucks that will come to my location?

The only answer is YES, any other answer or sidestep will cost you more money. If they do not own the trucks coming to your office, that means there is another middleman.

Is it your direct W2 employees that will be picking up my waste?

A hard Yes, is the only answer. Any other pre-patterned answer is going to cost you more. It all just means one company is paying another company to pick up the waste. Why not just pay the company that picks up the waste and cut out the middleman?

Do you own the treatment plants that will destroy my waste?

If they do not directly treat the waste with their own processing plants, that means they are paying another company to treat it, all off your bill.

Biohazard Waste Hauler

Haulers only pickup and transport the waste hauling it from point A to point B usually from your facility to a third-party treatment plant. This opens the door for another party to be responsible for the biohazardous waste and for errors to occur. The important question to ask is:

Does your company handle the direct transport and treatment of the biohazard waste, or only the transport?

Do you pay another company to treat and dispose of my biohazard waste?

Biohazard Healthcare Waste Management Company

Biohazard healthcare waste management companies are responsible for every step of the process, from pickup, transport, treatment, and safe disposal of your biohazardous waste. The important questions to ask to ensure that they are a full-service medical waste management company include:

Does your company own multiple biohazard waste disposal trucks?

Does your company directly employ and train the drivers (on a W2) that come into my medical facility?

Does your company own the treatment plants that destroy most of mu biohazardous waste?

The right company should be able to answer these questions and then some. They should also be able to provide more information about what they offer as well as testimonials from previous customers. This will give you a better understanding of what type of company you are dealing with and whether this is the right one for your needs.

Here at Healthcare Waste Management, we love talking to our customers and potential customers, we are always happy to answer any questions you may have or to lend a helping hand where we can.

We have built our business around your business; we have invested in our infrastructure to be able to service your facility from start to finish. Our direct employees, our trucks, our equipment, our safety training, and our destruction plants that treat your medical waste.

We believe when you hire a biohazardous, medical waste disposal company they should be able to do just that.

By having one company handle your waste from ‘cradle-to-grave’ allows us to bring our customers, the best process, products, and services with significant savings compared to the industry standard pricing. We do this while reducing our client’s impact on the environment which is a true win-win. Best processes, pricing and practices is what we built our company on.
