Waukegan, IL Medical Waste Disposal

Waukegan, IL Medical Waste Disposal. Healthcare Waste Management provides Waukegan and all of Illinois medical waste disposal services including red bag (biohazard) and sharps container disposal. We are able to offer cost-effective quality service and on-time pickups due to owning the entire process of your medical waste disposal. From our own drivers, trucks and destruction plants we do not have to rely on any other companies to process your medical waste, and we pass this savings on to our customers. Do you know if your medical waste disposal company owns their own trucks? Do they employ their haulers? Do they own their own waste disposal plant? Not having ownership of every step of the process simply raises prices and lowers the quality of service they can provide. HWM has complete control over every step in the chain and we love to be able to provide the highest quality service at the lowest prices. One thing we find crucial is using multi-use waste containers. These containers cut down on costs because we do not have to continuously be throwing away and purchasing new containers. As we all know plastic is filling our oceans and landfills and we are glad to lower our contribution to this problem.

The Dangers Of Medical Waste

If a needle isn’t properly disposed of a maintenance worker could press down on a garbage container to compress it and be stuck with a needle containing any number of possible blood borne pathogens. If the needle or other sharps was properly disposed a simple latex glove would be enough to protect the member of the janitorial staff from infectious diseases. This is only one example of what could go wrong if medical waste isn’t placed in the proper containers.Possibly more dangerous is the possibility of untreated medical waste being put in an everyday landfill. This can not only infect the waste management workers in the area it can also infect the local animals who frequent these landfills!
