What to look for in a medical waste disposal company?
At Healthcare Waste Management in order to provide you with the best possible service at the most economical pricing we knew we had to own the medical waste disposal process from start to finish.
You maybe thinking right now, of course doesn’t everyone who advertises or provides this service own the process from start to finish? The truth is no, while they may be able to complete the service from start to finish, owning it from start to finish is different.
We will explain the process, and why we setup our company to provide you with the best possible service at the most economical pricing.
If your facility generates medical waste, then at some point you will seek that service. The first contact is usually a phone call, or you completed a form, and someone called you back.
- The first thing to clarify is what company are you speaking with?
Is it the same company name on the website that you contacted? The reason we bring this up is because there are lead generators in this space and let us face it, no one wants to get passed around or sold to a bunch of companies. A lead generator does not have your best interest at heart so sort them out quickly.
The second step is to verify the company you are speaking with, is the company that will be coming to your facility. Simply ask;
- What is the name of the company that will pick up my waste?
The reason for this is, you could contract with one company and have a completely different company providing the service. This becomes a service issue, if the company you contract with does not directly service your facility, how much control do they have over things like missed pickups?
The last step is to ask;
- What company will destroy my medical waste?
If they give you any other name other than their own, that means two companies are now involved in your medical waste disposal process, two companies are making their margins from your monthly bill. As with any process or sale the more companies involved, the higher the cost.
Healthcare Waste Management has always thought, if you are providing a service, especially one as important as medical waste disposal, you should be able to provide the service from start to finish and for many reasons.
Why Healthcare Waste Management?
Safety is a legitimate concern when speaking of medical waste. Are the employees trained properly, are the vehicles equipped properly to transport medical waste, are the processing plants up to code and is the waste being destroyed properly? These are questions you can only answer if you own the process, we train our employees, we equip the trucks that transport the waste and we own the processing plants that treat the waste.
Cost is another factor; we own the entire process of your medical waste disposal because we wanted to provide the highest quality service at the best possible pricing. If a company must pay a company to pick up your medical waste and another to destroy your medical waste and they are making their cut off of your bill as well, that’s three companies all making it from your one service. We did not want to do that to our customers.
We knew we could not provide a quality service if we were relying on companies outside of our own control to do business with you. When we own the process, we can control the process, truck gets a flat no worries we have more, driver gets sick and can not run his route, we have backups, your facility fills up with medical waste sooner than expected, we can change routes, send a backup driver any number of options. One would be hard pressed to provide that level of service if they were not directly providing that service themselves.
“In short, Our Drivers, Our Trucks, Our Processing Plants and our name on the line with every service. We take pride in what we do and have invested in the infrastructure to provide you with the Best Possible Service at the Best Possible Pricing. Call Us Today.”

Chicago has a long-standing history as one of the major areas in the American economy. From the first settler, Jean Baptiste Point du Sable who opened a trading settlement at the mouth of the Chicago River. Jean is recognized as the founder of Chicago and has a School, Museum, harbor, park and bridge named after him. Jean Baptiste Point du Sable’s original residence and trading post is believed to be on what is known today as Chicago’s Magnificent Mile where the Chicago River and Upper Michigan Ave come together.
Since the mid-1800s Chicago has been the dominant metropolises in the Midwestern United States. Chicago has spent many of its early decades as the fastest growing city in the world. A flourishing economy brought residents from rural communities and immigrants from abroad. Manufacturing and retail and finance sectors became dominant, influencing the American economy. The Chicago Board of Trade (established 1848) listed the first-ever standardized “exchange-traded” forward contracts, which were called futures contracts.
Chicago had a fire in 1871 called the Great Chicago Fire, it destroyed an area about four miles long and one mile wide. At the time all the city’s buildings, sidewalks and many roads were made of wood with the drought the prior summer and the strong winds from the southwest, it was a recipe for disaster. There are many stories as to the origin of the fire from a cow knocking over a lantern to meteor showers causing it.
Whatever the cause of the fire was, one thing is certain, Chicagoans bounced back and set a precedent for worldwide construction using steel and stone as building materials. Chicago constructed the world’s first skyscraper in 1885 using steel-skeleton construction. It had 10 stories and stood 138 feet tall.
