How Can You Save Money?

Did you know that a great many of waste disposal companies don’t actually dispose your waste? They pick up your waste and then drive it to a facility where they pay somebody else to sanitize and dispose of your waste. This obviously drives up prices but along with that it lowers the quality of service as a whole. Healthcare Waste Management operates our own waste disposal plants, we hire our own drivers, we own the trucks, we have complete control of your waste from pickup to destruction. This saves tremendous amounts of money which we then pass down to you as savings on your waste pickup.

Des Moines, Iowa

Des Moines has a long history dating back to 1843. Settlers would come here and leave. A former teacher who came for the winter of 1850 was once quoted as saying, it is one of the strangest looking cities I ever saw, with the people as varied as the buildings, housing people from nearly every state. Because Des Moines sits on the Des Moines and Raccoon Rivers it has been nearly destroyed more than once. In 1851 much of the town was destroyed, including crops, housing and fences that were swept away by the raging waters. In 1993 and again in 2008 river flooding caused damage to the area. During the great flood of 1993 The Des Moines Water Works was submerged by flood waters which left some 250,000 without running water for 12 days and without drinking water for 20 days. 

Free Clinics in Des Moines

Des Moines is serviced by many wonderful hospitals such as Broadlawns medical center and the MercyOne medical center. These hospitals are great, but they may not have many options for people who are without insurance. That’s where Christ the King Free Clinic located on SW 9th Street comes in. Serviced by doctors donating their time for the clinic they can provide treatment for ailments such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and other chronic health conditions along with providing physicals and exams for children. They are generally open from 7AM to 9PM and you do not need an appointment.
