St. Louis Medical Waste Disposal
In St. Louis along with every other city in the United States if your business generates any amount of medical waste you must have it picked up by a licensed medical waste disposal company. These aren’t the only services a healthcare company may need, however. We offer services such as OSHA compliance training, paper and hard drive destruction, pharmaceutical disposal and more.
Always Saving Money
We at Healthcare Waste Management know that every healthcare business out there wants to cut their overhead. We also believe that medical waste disposal shouldn’t be as expensive as it often can be. Some of the actions we take to make sure your business can keep your costs as low as possible are using reusable sharps and biohazardous waste containers and high tech GPS routing.
The most important step we take is owning our disposal plant. Many waste disposal companies don’t own their plants and therefor have to pay a third party plant to sanitize and destroy your waste, greatly increasing prices for no reason.

St. Louis is home to more than five hospitals across the city such as the Kindred Hospital on Lindell Blvd, the Barnes-Jewish hospital, the St. Alexius Hospital on South Broadway and more. Kindred Hospital may have only 60 beds but this fact makes it even more equipped with handling addiction treatment. The small, personal environment ensures each patient gets the exact amount of help they need. St. Alexius on the other hand has just under 400 inpatient beds available and they treat conditions from gastroenterology to cardiology.

St. Louis, MO Medical Waste FAQ and Related Searches
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.
- 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
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.
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.
