Aurora, Illinois was one of the first cities in the United States to implement an all-electric system of street lights in 1881, and in 1908 officially accepted the nickname “City of Lights.” Prior to the late 1800’s cities relied on gas to light their homes and streets. It’s also appropriate that the Roman goddess Aurora was the goddess of dawn.
Today Aurora is the 2nd largest city in Illinois and is a thriving community of 200,000 people.
In the field of medicine and healthcare, Aurora is home to several excellent hospitals and medical facilities including the Rush-Copley Medical Center, the Provena Mercy Medical Center, and the Dreyer Medical Clinic. Supporting and staffing those facilities are thousands of dedicated physicians, nurses, and other medical personnel. Aurora is an excellent place to live and work in part because of excellent medical treatment and care available.
Hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices, and laboratories have many common concerns, and one of those is the safe removal and disposal of medical waste, or bio-hazardous waste.
Medical Waste Disposal Aurora, Illinois
Medical waste is something a lot of people don’t want to think about, but it’s one of the most important considerations for any medical office or facility. In Illinois, medical waste is called Potentially Infectious Medical Waste (PIMW) and is defined as waste generated in connection with the diagnosis, treatment (i.e., provision of medical services), or immunization of human beings or animals; research pertaining to the provision of medical services; or the provision or testing of biologicals. The definition actually is far lengthier and more specific in the Illinois Administrative Code, which is one of many reasons that the handling of medical waste is best left to experts.
When most people think of medical waste, needles come immediately to mind. Needles, or “sharps” are potentially very dangerous items which are only to be handled by qualified and experienced personnel.
Several factors should be considered by any medical practice or facility when choosing a company to remove, transport, and dispose of medical waste. Because of today’s tight budgets the number one concern for most medical professionals is cost.
MedPro Disposal understands that cost is critical, and so we are proud to offer every customer the MedPro Advantage. These aren’t just words, they are a commitment to offer “right-sized” service to all customers. We will never recommend more pick-ups than are necessary, yet we will never allow medical waste to remain longer than is safe and appropriate.
It seems that paperwork is an ever-increasing drain on the professional people working hard in the healthcare industry. Therefore, another important element of the MedPro Advantage designed to save time and contain costs is our simple invoicing. You will never find “fuel surcharges” or “regulatory fees” on your MedPro Disposal bill. A simple one-flat-fee is what the medical profession has asked for and we have responded.

Of equal importance to cost is service. Medical waste disposal isn’t like picking up your recyclables. There are very important (a) compliance issues that may involve liability to the medical care provider, which also raises the issue of (b) insurance.
- A healthcare provider must insist that medical waste is picked up, transported, and disposed of according to regulations and industry standards. MedPro understands and fully complies with regulations across the U.S.A.
- MedPro Disposal is fully insured. The moment medical waste leaves a facility or office, it is no longer an issue for our customer. Insurance is a major component of our commitment and obligation to our customers. Our insurance coverage documents are always available for inspection.
Another part of any service obligation is having adequate resources. The disposal company must have the recourses to avoid those excuses that are so common in service-related industries. A medical provider does not want to hear “sorry, Bill’s out sick, we can’t make it.” That’s unacceptable to you and to MedPro Disposal. Every customer is contacted on day one by a Dedicated Customer Advocate who is the “go-to” representative for any and all issues.
MedPro Disposal is a national company and is eminently qualified and capable to deliver unsurpassed service at very competitive prices.
Another MedPro Advantage is online OSHA training for staff. It’s a necessary part of making sure we do everything we can to build a long-lasting relationship with our customers.
Aurora is one of several cities in Illinois that is served by MedPro Disposal, and we are pleased to offer hospitals, medical offices, clinics, and laboratories the lowest prices and best service in the industry. Contact us for a quote!
