Located 10 miles northeast of Denver, Thornton, CO has a population of 118,772 people and is the state’s 6th most populated city. Considered to be a very active community, the city of Thornton offers many programs and recreational activities for residents of all ages. The people of Thornton see a strong value in having safe and welcoming neighborhoods that allow time to recreate, relax, and enjoy time with family and friends alike.
Thornton follows in the footsteps of many other cities in Colorado, in the sense that it is a very beautiful and serene place to live and work. This beauty is only possible with proper waste disposal, and MedPro Disposal is proud to say that we have a strong presence in Thornton and are tasked with safely disposing of medical waste produced from the local healthcare facilities. North Suburban Medical Center, Vibra Hospital of Denver, and many smaller healthcare practices produce large amounts of medical waste on a daily basis that cannot go into the normal trash stream. This is because medical waste is often contaminated with blood and bodily fluids, which have the potential of carrying nasty pathogens. If an individual were to come in contact with these blood-borne pathogens, it could have disastrous health effects.
Medical waste comes in many forms, including used sharps, IV bags, soaked bandages and gauze pads, among other things. After these items are used on a patient, it is crucial that they are discarded immediately into a proper medical waste container. Failure to do so can lead to the contamination of sterile environments, which, according to the CDC, resulted in 17 million cases of infection in hospitals during 2011.
Being a MedPro Disposal customer means no more guessing what needs to go in a medical waste bin, and what can go in a normal trash bin. We will send your facility a poster that lists everything that must go in the medical waste container, and everything that is safe to dispose of in the standard trash stream. Segregating waste has never been easier! This ensures that the pristine environment of Thornton does not become contaminated with any harmful pathogens.
Along with our superior medical waste removal services, MedPro Disposal also offers a pharmaceutical disposal program for the Thornton area, as well as OSHA compliance training. Our pharmaceutical disposal service is a mail-back program where we send your facility a 2.5 gallon bucket that is filled with unused and old medications. Once the bucket reaches capacity, simply attach the pre-paid shipping label, send it to our disposal facility using your local shipping company, and a new bucket arrives on your doorstep, ready to be filled up again! MedPro Disposal is committed to keeping pharmaceuticals out of the water supply, which has been proven to negatively affect fish and wildlife.
Nestled near the Rocky Mountains, it may be hard finding an outside consultant to come into your facility and provide OSHA training for your entire workforce. Luckily, MedPro Disposal offers OSHA compliance training to the Thornton area in the form of an easy to use online portal. The portal allows for administrators to assign job-specific tests to employees, and keeps track of all certificates of completion. Along with that, an administrator can view individual progress and even send out reminders for employees to complete their training. It is the most robust and cost-efficient method of ensuring your practice is OSHA compliant, should you ever be audited.
Because of Thornton’s relatively remote location, we have seen outrageous costs that facilities pay to have their medical waste disposed of. MedPro Disposal is committed to putting an end to that unfair practice, and our Thornton area customers consistently see savings in the 20-40% range compared to their previous waste haulers, and even more when they bundle all of our services. No one should have to think about fancy trash every day, so let MedPro Disposal remove your medical waste while we put your hard earned money back in your pocket!
Thornton was named after former Colorado Governor Dan Thornton, and up until 1953 was primarily a small farming town, until Sam Hoffman purchased a lot of land off Washington Street, 7 miles from Denver. Thornton was the first town in Adams County to offer full municipal services from a single tax levy, as well as free trash pickup.
By 1956, Thornton boasted a population of 5,500 residents and Oyer G. Leary was elected as the city’s first mayor.
Mentioned previously, Thornton is a very active community, and currently has 81 city parks and close to 2,000 acres of parks and open space for residents to enjoy, along with over 80 miles of multi-use trails.
