It’s no secret that medical waste disposal can be expensive. With costs predicted to grow in the future based on population growth and an increase in healthcare services many facilities are looking for ways to save on costs.

Below are a few factors to think about when considering whether you are overpaying for your medical waste services:



1. Frequency of Pickup

Consider how appropriate your service is for your needs. Could you cut down on costs by having                fewer pickups?

2. Proper Waste Classification

Ensure your staff is properly trained in segregating medical waste. It’s crucial for not only saving               money, but saving lives.

3. Insurance

Insurance properly covers your facility and your medical waste and can save you thousands in case         your medical waste truck gets into an accident.

4. Bundling Services to Save Money

Bundling services such as OSHA training along with your medical waste disposal services can help           your facility cut down on costs.

5. Rightsizing

Make sure you work with a company that truly cares about providing you with the services you truly           need along with great pricing.
