What does Medical Waste Cost?

There are several factors that go into medical waste disposal cost. What you will hear most often is location and frequency. While these do affect cost to some degree, if we come out weekly verse monthly that will obviously increase cost. What most companies will fail to tell you is, how many companies involved in the process will also increase cost. If you are working with a company that has the capacity to pick up, haul and destroy the waste all within the confines of their own company, that will decrease cost. You may think well, the company I work with does all of that. Do they though? Do you know if the company that picks up your waste is the same company that you contracted with? Do you know what happens to the waste after it is picked up? Most people rightfully assume the company that picks it up, destroys it. That is not the case a lot of the time. What happens is one company picks it up and transports it to another company to destroy it. So, you could have two or three companies all trying to make margins off your bill. Healthcare Waste Management owns the entire process of your medical waste disposal, our drivers, our trucks and our processing plants that destroy your waste.

Clinton, Iowa

Clinton has a history in the lumber industry as many of the Midwest cities did. The area became the center of the lumber industry and was know as the “Lumber capital of the World”. As it turns out, huge log rafts floated down the Mississippi River from northern states like Minnesota and Wisconsin and then in Clinton, they were cut into lumber and shipped into growing communities via the railroad and the river. Because of its thriving location and the lumber industry, in the late 1800s Clinton held more millionaires per capita (13) than any other town or city in the nation at the time.

Clinton, IA Medical Waste FAQ and Related Searches

What is Medical Waste?

Medical waste is healthcare trash that contains infectious or potentially infectious items. It can come from hospitals, medical clinics, veterinary offices, dental clinics, research facilities, or medical laboratories. It can contain blood or other bodily fluids, or it can appear benign, like gloves or gowns.

According to the Medical Waste Tracking Act of 1988, it’s defined as any waste created during treatment, testing, immunization, research, or diagnosis of human beings and animals. Examples include sharps like scalpels or needles, tissue, fluids, glassware, swabs, culture dishes, or bandages.

 

What are some Examples of Medical Waste?
  • Expired vaccines
  • Tissue from humans or animals
  • Gowns, gloves, or gauze that may have blood on them
  • Waste from rooms of patients with infectious diseases
  • Needles, scalpels, and broken glass used in procedures
  • Laboratory cultures, stocks, and contaminated culture paraphernalia
  • Bedding from infected animals 
What are the types of medical waste?

The WHO identifies the 8 categories of medical waste as:

  • Infectious waste
  • Sharps waste
  • Pathological waste
  • Chemical waste
  • Cytotoxic waste
  • Pharmaceutical waste
  • Radioactive waste
  • Nonhazardous general waste

Those types cover all the potential varieties and sources of regulated and non-regulated healthcare waste.

Who generates medical waste?

You know hospitals and doctor’s offices create medical waste. But blood banks, dental clinics, and urgent care clinics create it too. Pharmacies, veterinary clinics, medical testing labs, research labs, nursing homes, hotels where patients stay, and funeral homes also create regulated waste.

Even an office building can generate biohazardous waste. Why? Because if someone gets a nosebleed at work and uses a tissue to stop it, they’ve created regulated waste. There was a hotel in Boston, next door to Mass General Hospital, was fined twice for medical waste violations from hotel guests.
