Gary, Indiana Medical Waste Disposal

Gary, Indiana Medical Waste Disposal. Healthcare Waste Management has its headquarters in Gary, Indiana. If you are looking for a medical waste disposal service in Gary, look no further. We provide medical waste, infectious waste, biohazard waste and sharps container disposal services in Gary. One of our medical waste processing plants is in Gary on West 9th Avenue. We not only pick up your medical waste, we are the haulers, we own the trucks that transport your waste and the medical waste processing plants that destroy your waste. It may surprise you to find out, in many instances you will find medical waste disposal companies that do not pick up your waste, haul your waste and most importantly do not destroy your waste. I am not sure how you can be an expert or top-quality provider in this industry if you rely on so many other companies to do the work. Working with Healthcare Waste Management it is like working directly with the supplier. Our employees, our trucks, our insurance and our medical waste processing plants. We feel as a provider of this service, to ensure quality measures are followed and for us to offer the most cost-effective services, we had to own the entire process. The more companies trying to make thier margins on your bill, the more it is going to cost you. Those are just a few of the reasons we do it all.


“The main reason is to provide you with the highest quality service at the most affordable price.”

Hospitals in Gary

Gary Indiana is unique in its production of medical waste as there are only two hospitals in all of Gary, Methodist Hospitals main campus and their sister campus in Midlake. Also, by law, Methodist Hospitals cannot leave Gary. In the 70s Methodist attempted to leave Gary and transfer their hospital to Merrilville. These days Methodist legally cannot leave Gary and must provide equal services to all of their hospitals. Along with that, the Office of Civil Rights has to approve any investments coming into their hospitals.

Low Cost Service

The economic hardships of Gary are no secret. Eighteen percent of the population has no health insurance at all, and a large majority of the rest are on Medicare or Medicaid. These reasons make it extra important for Methodist to save as much money as they can without sacrificing their standards of care. Our services help you reduce the waste and cost associated with your medical waste disposal needs by ensuring you have to proper containers and your employees have the proper training. Healthcare Waste Management uses industry leading reusable sharps containers and reusable medical waste containers, fuel efficient trucks and well-planned intelligent routing to not only keep costs down, but also lessen your impact on the environment. This of course is important for any area, but especially important for the Gary area as it is regularly reported as one of the most polluted cities in the United States.

Trustworthy and Reliable

Hospitals are not the only medical facilities in Gary, however. As mentioned above a large amount of the people in Gary either do not have insurance or are on Medicare/Medicaid. This makes low cost healthcare options extra important, and thankfully there is the Community HealthNet Health Center on 5th Ave which provides medical, dental and behavioral services for all people regardless of their ability to pay. We at HWM are not just medical waste transporters who act as middle men between your facility and a separate processing plant and charge you a premium for the pleasure. We own everything from the trucks to the waste processing plant, we aren’t just middle men here to make a profit off of communities that truly need help.
