Doctors, nurses, hospitals, laboratories, and clinics all may specialize in different areas of medicine, but they all have one thing in common: medical waste. They all produce medical waste and they must handle it and dispose of it in a manner consistent with regulations.
Biomedical waste may be solid or liquid. Examples of infectious waste include discarded blood, sharps, unwanted microbiological cultures and stocks, identifiable body parts, other human or animal tissue, used bandages and dressings, discarded gloves, other medical supplies that may have been in contact with blood and body fluids. Most non-medical personnel just refer to it as icky stuff.
In Arizona, medical waste, bio-hazardous materials, and associated items are defined in the Arizona Administrative Code, – Title 18 Chapter 13 – and compliance is regulated by the Department of Environmental Quality.
Medical Waste Disposal Mesa, Arizona
So, the medical community in Mesa is creating medical waste every day and one must ask, where does it go? That’s where MedPro Disposal comes in.
MedPro is an industry leading company with service locations across the country. Serving large medical centers to small doctor’s offices, we are unique in that we proudly offer the MedPro Advantage:
- Right-Sized Service – Some companies will assign a plan to healthcare providers based on their assessment and proceed to pick up waste according to that plan. They’ll even stop and pick up empty containers and charge for every stop. MedPro works with every customer to customize a plan based on their needs.
- Simple Invoicing – Our customers told us long ago that they want simplified rates and easy invoicing. We listened with a one-flat-rate system and invoices from MedPro never contain hidden or surprise charges or fees. We just don’t do it.
- Quality Customer Service – MedPro created a special position in the company, the Dedicated Customer Advocate to assume ownership and responsibility of each customer’s account. Every healthcare provider who partners with MedPro is introduced to this dedicated representative who becomes the “point person” for any and all issues or questions related to training, billing, or pick-ups. It’s a pleasant experience, far better than dialing an 800 number and waiting to speak with a computer.
- Risk Reduction – Regulatory compliance, safety consciousness, training, and insurance all combine to reduce risk.
MedPro Medical Waste Disposal Mesa, Arizona’s coast-to-coast presence and years of safety-focused experience has earned us acclaim from our customers for being compliant. We maintain an up-to-date database of all hazardous waste regulations.

Our MedPro Online Safety Compliance Portal has current training and certification materials for OSHA, HIPPA, HazCom, ICD 10, MSDS/SDS as well as safety audits and regulations.
Adequate insurance is inadequate. MedPro maintains a substantial level of coverage for our protection as well as our customer’s peace-of-mind. When medical waste leaves a facility, healthcare providers needn’t worry about it.
MedPro offers an Unwanted Pharmaceuticals Disposal Program – patients should be encouraged to use this program rather than dispose of drugs down the drain or in the garbage, which can be very dangerous.
