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.

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.
