Nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains, Fort Collins offers something for everyone. Live music and entertainment can be found in abundance throughout the year, as well as fantastic local dining. The small town, which has a big city feel, is home to Colorado State University, and the culture surrounding the area is representative of that. Colorado is known for its natural beauty, with large mountains and untouched wilderness, and Fort Collins is no exception. Keeping this beautiful city in pristine condition is the responsibility of many organizations, including MedPro Disposal.
With a population of 161,000, keeping that many residents healthy and in good condition is the responsibility of Poudre Valley Hospital and Banner Fort Collins Medical Center. They treat patients with superior care, however, with that care comes waste. Medical waste to be exact. You may not be aware, but waste that comes from hospitals and healthcare facilities cannot go into the normal waste stream. The reason for this is because it is generally contaminated with blood, which contains blood-borne pathogens. These pathogens have the potential to cause infection and disease if not disposed of properly. MedPro Disposal is proud to offer medical waste removal services to the Fort Collins area, keeping the residents and environment safe.
We know that medical waste generally contains blood, but what exactly is classified as medical waste? IV bags, used sharps, soaked gauze bandages and human tissue are all classified as medical waste, as well as much more. It is crucial that all of these materials be disposed of in a proper medical waste disposal bin immediately after use, in order to prevent the spread of pathogens. Failure to do so can lead to infections and contamination of sterile environments, which, according to the CDC, resulted in 17 million cases of infection in hospitals during 2011.
Figuring out if the waste you are handling is medical waste or safe to go into the normal trash stream is easy when you’re a MedPro Disposal customer. We will send your facility a poster that lists and describes everything that can go in a medical waste container, and everything that is safe to throw away in a normal trash bin. Dealing with medical waste has never been easier!
Another popular service we offer in the Fort Collins area is pharmaceutical disposal. Our program is designed to be hassle-free and extremely simple. MedPro Disposal will send your facility a 2.5 gallon bucket that you fill with unused and expired medications. Once that bucket becomes full, simply give us a call and we will send you a brand new bucket along with a pre-paid shipping label to send the full bucket to our disposal facility. This service is very important because it keeps unused medications out of the Fort Collins water supply, which affects local fish stocks, among other things.
To top it all off, MedPro Disposal also offers OSHA compliance training for facilities in Fort Collins. Our online portal is designed to be extremely user friendly, meaning any employee can easily navigate and complete the required training. The portal allows administrator access to assign job-specific tests for individual employees, and even allows group training if desired. Once an employee has finished their OSHA compliance training, the portal keeps records of all completion certificates, making it very easy to pull up if your facility were ever to be outside audited.
Healthcare practices in Fort Collins are consistently switching over to MedPro Disposal for their medical waste removal needs. In the Colorado area, our customers consistently see savings in the 20-40% range compared to their previous waste haulers. Those are savings that can be invested into providing better care for what really matters: the patients.
Fort Collins economy relies heavily on Colorado State University, which dominates the town.

Fort Collins was founded as a military fort in 1864 and referred to as "Camp Collins." The post was given the name in honor of Lt. Col. William 0. Collins, the popular commander of Ohio Cavalry troops whose headquarters were at Fort Laramie. Fort Collins was incorporated as a town in 1873.
