Benefits of Working with a Local Medical Waste Company
Top Reasons to Keep it Local
As a medical or healthcare organization, safe disposal of waste is crucial. Whether a hospital, clinic, physician’s office, dental practice–or any other type of facility, choosing a locally owned and operated medical waste disposal company offers many benefits that nationally owned chains don’t. Take a look:
Staying Local Saves Time
Working with a locally owned medical waste disposal company ensures that your facility will get the service needed in a timely fashion. Once you partner with a provider and set up a regular schedule for your waste pick-up, you can rest assured that generated waste is disposed of properly without delays. In the event of an emergency, a local company can respond faster, reducing risks of injuries or illnesses as well as the risk of failing to comply with OSHA mandates.
Compliance with Local, State & Federal Regulations
Local medical waste disposal companies are well-versed in compliance guidelines and can ensure that your organization is adhering to mandates. Because regulations can differ from state to state, it’s imperative to work with a company that knows and understands the rules for your area as well as federal mandates.
Local Companies Can Help you Save Money
Working with a local company can save you money because they are usually less expensive than out-of-state companies. Out-of-state companies often charge fuel or trip fees—and with current fuel prices as high as they are, these types of fees could be excessive.
Supporting Your Local Community
Working with a locally owned company means you’re supporting your community. Local businesses help grow the economy in your neighborhood by creating jobs and opportunities.
Proper medical waste disposal is crucial to keeping your staff, community and the environment safe. Choosing a local company can not only save you time and money, but it also offers a convenience and peace of mind that you are remaining compliant with state regulations.
