Medical Waste Disposal Company

Medical Waste Disposal Company. Having a professional, licensed, trained, and reliable medical waste disposal company is critical for the protection of people and the environment. The right medical waste disposal company will be aware of all state and federal laws so that customers can be compliant and safe.

There are many steps involved in ensuring that the waste is handled, stored, transported, and disposed of properly. The responsibilities of the customer (also known as a generator), relies heavily on knowing and understanding all the required guidelines. A responsible medical waste disposal company can assist with information, staff training, and the supplies needed so that customers are protected.

Types of Medical Waste

A good medical waste disposal company will help in the education process to inform customers in identifying each type of waste so that it is dealt with according to safety protocols and the laws.


Both generator and waste companies have a list of responsibilities that are critical for the safety of people, animals, and the environment. These responsibilities cover a gamut of topics including education, handling, storage, transportation, and safe disposal that renders the medical waste harmless.

Generator:  A generator is responsible for complying with all state and federal laws regarding staff training, retaining proper containers for each type of waste, handling, labeling, storage, and coordinating with a licensed medical waste disposal company for proper disposal. Some states require that generators have permits and/or licenses for the quantity of medical waste they generate. Proof of destruction is also required in many states, along with detailed record keeping in case of audit or legal situations.

Medical Waste Disposal Company:  The right company is responsible for coordinating with the generator for scheduled pickup and the customer is given confirmation documentation. These companies are required to comply with all DOT (Department of Transportation) standards in the transporting of the waste, taking the medical waste to a licensed treatment plant where it is rendered harmless, and supplying the customer with proof of destruction. We also offer such added benefits as: FDA-cleared waste containers, bags, labels, counseling on state laws, online compliance training courses, and customer informational/educational portals.
