3 Reasons Why Biohazard Waste Disposal Is Vital In Houston

Biohazard Waste Disposal and Texas. Deep in the heart of Texas sits the fourth largest city in the United States: Houston. With more than 2 million people that call Houston home, the city has plenty to show for its larger than life size.

For starters it’s a melting pot of immigrants from all over the world bringing their flare and flavors to this southern cultural hub. Its residents have a team to root for all year long with four professional sports organizations anchored in town. It’s a hot seat for the nation’s energy and oil industries, and a mecca for telecommunications.

Not to mention, Houston has been the nerve center for NASA’s space operations since the Space Race of the 1950’s and -60’s that saw the U.S. put the first man on the moon.

In short, Houston is a big deal.

While many Houston-ites are hard at work each day taking care of issues unfolding in outer space, others are hard at work in the biotechnology and healthcare sectors. In fact, Houston is home to the largest medical complex in the world: Texas Medical Center (TMC).

TMC employs 106,000 people and tends to 7.2 million patient visits annually- that’s three times the population of Houston and twice that of Los Angeles according to TMC’s website.

Houston’s health and medical organizations do not stop at TMC, they are spread far and wide throughout the city. But the last thing any medical professional wants to hear when it comes to medical waste disposal is “Houston we have a problem.”

MedPro Disposal provides reliable, cost-effective medical waste disposal throughout Houston, Texas to large and small quantity generators of medical waste.

The State of Texas produces 8.5 percent of the nation’s 2 million tons of total medical waste per year, second only to California. How Houston companies handle, store, transport and dispose of all that waste is regulated by the State of Texas.

Pages of instructions on getting rid of sharps, blood, body fluids, microbiological waste, pathological waste and more are available as part of Title 30 in the Texas Administrative Code. But while medical companies should be aware of the rules and regulations around biohazard waste disposal- MedPro Disposal takes care of operating under those rules and regulations so that health facilities can focus on doing their job while their waste-disposal needs are taken care of.

With plenty of businesses in need of medical waste disposal and biohazard waste disposal, there are several companies competing for that not-so-glamorous but necessary job.

Here are a few reasons MedPro Disposal has an edge over other biohazard waste disposal companies:

  1. MedPro Disposal is cost-conscious:

    The cost of biohazard waste disposal varies from state to state, and even office to office. We know that healthcare budgets are stretched very thin. That’s why we work with each individual client to work out a service schedule and payment plan that makes since for that specific business.

How much waste an office produces, how often it needs to be picked up, and how close that office is to other facilities using our services all get factored into price. At any time, an office can scale back or ramp up the number of pick-ups to best fit their needs.

We would much rather pick up full waste containers less frequently than charge extra to pick up half-full containers on a more frequent basis. It saves you money and us time.

  1. MedPro Disposal is service oriented:

    MedPro Disposal believes that our customers come first. That is why we customize our service for each and every client based on their needs. Everyone on our field team and on teams with our affiliate hauling companies are trained to maintain top-notch customer satisfaction.

Our attitude toward customer service overflows into how we operate as a company. Our invoices are easy to read and understand with zero hidden fees or surcharges. We utilize green paperless billing and online document retrieval in most areas for convenience. And we always offer customized plans based on customer needs so that no one is spending more than necessary on our services.

  1. MedPro Disposal has seen it all:

    MedPro Disposal has been expanding its services across the nation since 2009. That has given us plenty of time to know and understand the intricacies of the market. Service for a small, specialized doctor’s office is going to vary wildly from service at a large clinic. We are prepared to handle all situations.


Our vast experience also validates our commitment to cost and customer service. Our customers continue to report rave reviews and prove that our prices for our services remain unmatched by our competition.
