MedPro has Medical Waste Disposal Anaheim, California services, and more. Anaheim was founded by grape farmers and wine makers. Interestingly, Anaheim takes its name from the Santa Ana River – the literal meaning of Ana is home by the river and ‘Heim’ is a German word for ‘home’. Presently it is the most populous city in Orange County and 10th most populous city in California.
Before Disneyland opened its doors in 1955, Anaheim was popular as a rural community. Even today, you could find historic buildings and homes from the 1950s. Surprisingly, these ancient structures haven’t changed and are still intact. Anaheim hosted its first Halloween parade in 1924 and continues to hold one of the largest parades till date. While visiting the city, you would come across the most impressive convention centers on the West Coast.
Presently tourism is the largest industry in Anaheim – the city is home to attractions like Disneyland and several beaches along the coastline. The ever-increasing number of visitors has led to more hotels, shopping centers, restaurants and recreation spots being built in the area. The state has done some major infrastructure changes in the Anaheim Resort district – one interesting change is the addition of more than 15,000 trees, shrubs, and flowers.
Over the past few years, Anaheim has become economically diverse and is home to a variety of business units including multinational firms as well as local and regional companies. You would also find a number of manufacturing plants in the city. Popular goods and items produced include chemicals, machinery, aircraft parts, communications equipment and processed foods.
The expansion of the city has led to the development of a variety of healthcare units including hospitals, dental clinics, veterinary units and physician offices. The increase in the number of healthcare units calls for medical waste disposal companies in Anaheim to get into action. Remember that medical, pharmaceutical and dental waste generated by healthcare facilities needs to be disposed of properly so that it doesn’t become a potential health hazard to healthcare workers, public and the environment.

Medical Waste Disposal Anaheim, California
Medical waste disposal Anaheim, California is strictly legislated area and the waste must be handled strictly according to the state and federal requirements. The Medical Waste Management Act (MWMA) defined in California Health and Safety Code Sections 117600 – 118360 regulates the management of medical wastes in the state.
Medical waste disposal Anaheim, California includes the disposal of clinical waste, dental waste and pharmaceutical waste. As you can guess clinical waste includes human blood, body fluids, sharps, lancets, syringes, blood soaked bandages, radioactive wastes, surgical tools and other pathogenic/infectious material that can cause infections in humans.
Dental waste includes amalgam, sharps, lead foils, and x-ray developer chemicals. Over the counter drugs and other out of date medication also needs to be disposed of carefully and this is included under pharmaceutical waste.
Managing and Disposing Pharmaceutical Waste
Pharmaceutical waste includes unused and expired medication as well as used test strips and other drug related supplies. Because of the dangers to human health and environment, it is important that pharmaceutical waste is not disposed of like other household waste and requires special handling.
Perhaps the biggest concern with pharmaceutical waste is that the expired vaccines, controlled drugs, cytotoxic medication being thrown away can become a serious health threat for animals as well as the environment. There’s also a risk that expired and unused drugs end up in the hands of people who misuse them.
Cytotoxic drugs in particular pose a serious health risk as these drugs have toxic effects on cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy (killing off cancer cells), hormonal preparations, anti-viral drugs, drugs that suppress the immune system, and certain antibiotics need to be handled and disposed of with care whether in tablet, cream, liquid or aerosol (spray) form. Hormonal preparations and cancer treatment medication should be clearly separated from other waste as they can be extremely hazardous.
Sometimes test strips and sharps included under pharmaceutical waste can contain hazards such as blood. Remember that bottles, boxes, vials, gloves, masks, syringes and tubes contaminated by drugs and drug residues might be equally risky as the drug itself. Furthermore, chemicals contained in medication can cause environmental damages especially if they are released in large scale. Flushing of unused prescription and over the counter medication is not at all advised and this is where specialty medical waste disposal companies come in.
MedPro Disposal has the knowledge and understanding of pharmaceutical waste management needs and offer reliable and flexible services to their customers. You can rest assured that the pharmaceutical waste is disposed of correctly and the process is documented from the point of collection right through to final destruction.
Environmental Threats of Dental Waste
In addition to responsible medical and pharmaceutical waste management, our dental waste disposal services include the collection and disposal of amalgam waste, hard dental waste, x-ray developer and fixer waste, lead foils and precious waste.
Management and disposal of dental waste has gained importance mainly due to amalgam disposal. Dental amalgam or simply amalgam is almost 50% mercury by weight – mercury contained in dental amalgam is combined with other metals to make mercury safe for use in dental preparations.
