America’s “driest” City is served by MedPro Medical Waste Disposal Yuma, Arizona.

Located in southwest Arizona, Yuma has a population of approximately 100,000 full-time residents, but has as many as 85,000 winter residents who come to escape cold weather up north. Yuma is the least humid census designated area in the country, and it receives the highest amount of sunshine.

The Yuma Regional Medical Center serves the region and employs over 2,000 healthcare professionals.

When someone visits the doctor in Yuma and receives an injection or provides a blood sample, they most likely don’t think about what happens to the needle after it is dropped in to container marked “Bio-Hazard.” Most people don’t want to think about it.

Doctors, nurses, and practice managers who must not only treat patients, but run a profitable practice think about it. Medical waste is removed, transported, and disposed of by a licensed medical waste disposal company and the selection of an appropriate company is critical.

The choice is important because medical waste contains potentially hazardous materials that could injure or kill someone if not handled properly. The issue of cost is also critical because the healthcare community has been forced to tighten budgets. Every expense for a doctor’s office or hospital must be carefully scrutinized.

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.


Stories in the news recently have focused on the spread of very hazardous diseases like Ebola. There are dozens of other infectious illnesses which can be spread through the mishandling of medical waste, so the importance of only qualified personnel dealing with medical waste cannot be overstated.

MedPro Medical Waste Disposal Yuma, Arizona has an extensive and exemplary safety record, which is due to proper training and compliance with regulations.

The MedPro Advantage is a program created in response to years of listening to medical professionals who have prioritized their concerns:

  1. Cost: Doctors and Medical Administrators have been deluged with new procedural mandates and rules because of the Affordable Healthcare Act and other insurance rules regarding classifications and codes. It’s a lot of paperwork, which translates to more hours which equals more expenses. MedPro has responded to cost concerns with “right-sized” service, which means pick-ups are scheduled in a way to maximize efficiency. Invoices are based on a one-flat-fee and never contain additional charges or “surprise” fees. Healthcare workers asked and MedPro responded.
  2. Risk: Medical professionals constantly seek to reduce risk. This means increasing safety which is directly proportional to better training and better procedures. MedPro is proud to not only carefully and stringently train our own staff, we offer training to our customers through an online portal attached to our website: The MedPro Compliance Suite. This portal is a cloud-based, secure platform for medical facilities to train their personnel in OSHA and HIPPA, ICD 10, HazCom, perform safety audits and receive certifications. This portal is completely unique to MedPro and is a very substantial benefit to our customers. Risk is tempered by insurance, and MedPro maintains substantial coverage at all times. Healthcare providers are focused on patients and shouldn’t have to worry about medical waste after it’s out the door.
  3. Service: As a national company, MedPro Medical Waste Disposal Yuma, Arizona has the resources and experience to make and fulfill commitments. If a pick-up is missed for some reason, the situation will be made right and our customer will receive a credit for the inconvenience. Another service-related benefit of working with MedPro is the Dedicated Customer Advocate. Rather than a computer, this is a real human being who is introduced to our customers on day one. This advocate is the contact person for all questions, concerns, issues pertaining to billing, training, or pick-ups and is with each customer throughout their MedPro relationship.

MedPro is constantly evolving, constantly developing more efficient programs and procedures. We are pleased to offer customers an unwanted drug disposal program. Patients should be encouraged not to dispose of drugs down the drain or in the regular trash as this can be very dangerous.

Yuma Little-Known Facts

Telegraph Pass Wrong Way Freeway: When Interstate 8 was built through Telegraph Pass in the 60’s, engineers were faced with a challenge. They needed to keep the grades at less than 6 percent in both directions. Due to the terrain it was not possible to widen the existing U.S 80 highway to the width required for the freeway. The solution was found by examining the previous routes through the Gila Mountains. The Eastbound route simply used the existing route of the U.S. 80 highway that had been built in 1948. The Westbound route was built to generally follow the alignment of the original 1928 U.S. 80 roadway. In order to keep the grade under 6 percent the road had to be straightened somewhat. The other issue was the 1928 alignment crossed over the 1948 alignment. This lead to the unusual arrangement of the Westbound lanes being to the South instead of the North.
