Cape Coral Florida has over 400 miles of canals, more than any other city in the world. Most of the canals are navigable and some have access to the Gulf of Mexico. Cape Coral’s canal system is so extensive that local ecology and tides have been affected.

Cape Coral is located in Lee County, Florida, on the Gulf of Mexico. It was founded in 1957 as a master-planned community and quickly grew to a population of 154,305 by 2010. Cape Coral is the largest city between Tampa and Miami, with an area of 120 square miles. The city is known as the “Waterfront Wonderland,” with over 400 miles of canals, which is more than any city in the entire world.
When the residents of this beautiful, ocean-side city fall ill, they turn to Cape Coral Hospital for their medical needs. With a population of that size, however, comes a large amount of medical waste that needs to be disposed of somehow. This is where Medpro Disposal comes in; we are a leading medical waste disposal company based out of Chicago, IL, but proudly serve the Cape Coral area. When a medical device is used on a patient, it is often contaminated with blood and must be disposed of immediately in the proper medical waste container. This is to prevent the spread of pathogens, which, according to the CDC, led to 17 million cases of infection in hospitals in 2011.
What exactly is medical waste? Medical waste can be a variety from things, but are generally items that come in contact with large amounts of blood or bodily fluids. IV bags, used sharps, gauze pads, soaked bandages and even human tissue are all classified as medical waste, however that is only a few examples. These items cannot go into the regular trash stream because if an unprotected individual were to come into contact with these materials, it could lead to the transmission of diseases, which can have disastrous health effects. The good news is, as a MedPro Disposal customer, your facility will receive a poster that can be displayed above the medical waste container. This poster clearly outlines what items can and cannot be placed into the medical waste container, along with what is safe to throw away in the regular trash bin.
MedPro Disposal may have a strong focus on medical waste disposal, but we also offer other services as well for businesses in Cape Coral! Our most popular service that complements our waste removal is our pharmaceutical mail-back program. Many facilities often end up with unused or expired medications, and they need to be disposed of properly, without ending up in the water stream which adversely affects the fragile aquatic ecosystems; a big part of Cape Coral. With our program, your facility is provided with a 2.5 gallon bucket that you use to fill with unused and expired medications. Once the bucket reaches capacity, the included pre-paid shipping label is attached and ready to be shipped off to our disposal facility. Your facility then receives a brand new bucket for the process to be repeated. A great thing to note about this program is that it is only a per-bucket fee, whether it takes 6 weeks or 6 months to fill. You will not be charged monthly for a service you may not even be using!
Along with the services previously noted, a popular service we offer in the Cape Coral area is OSHA compliance. MedPro utilizes an online portal that allows easy access for an administrator to assign assessments for individual or group training. The employee in question will receive an email that they are due for testing, and they can complete all the tests on their own time. When they complete everything, the certificate of completion is stored in a centralized tab in the portal, allowing for quick and easy access to all records. This online portal is extremely cost-efficient because it eliminates the need for an outside consultant to come in and train your entire workforce. As you can imagine, this takes a lot of time, and in this industry, time = money.
Here at MedPro Disposal, we firmly believe that no one should ever have to overpay for a required service. That’s why a majority of our customers in the Cape Coral area see average savings in the 20-40% range compared to their previous waste hauler.
Founded in 1957, the first building in the city was the Rosens’ company headquarters, with the first permanent resident being Kenny Schwartz, the Rosens’ general manager. The city incorporated in 1970, and it saw consistent population growth until the real estate slowdown that affected the region beginning in 2008.
In 1977, Cape Coral became the first municipality in the United States to use reverse osmosis on a large scale to purify water for its residents. By 1985, the city had the largest low pressure reverse osmosis plant in the world, capable of producing 56,780 cubic meters of clean water daily, at peak capacity.
The local economy in Cape Coral is based off local government services, healthcare, retail shops, and construction of new real estate. It has a continuously expanding public and private education sector, with some of the highest performance standards in the country.
Cape Coral consistently ranks at the top for public safety in both Florida and the United States. The Cape Coral fire department won a "Voice of the People Award" for Excellence in Fire Services from the International City/County Management Association (ICMA).
