The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is the most populated state in New England with over 80% of the population located in the Greater Boston area. The state is the location of the first New England colonies when the Pilgrims landed in Plymouth in 1620. Massachusetts was the epicenter for some of most important moments in early American history such as the Revolutionary War. During the Industrial Revolution, Massachusetts became a manufacturing powerhouse in cities such as Lowell and Boston producing textiles and shoes. Today, the state is a global leader in engineering, finance, and law known for its excellent universities including Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
In 1770 growing tensions against the British Monarchy led to the Boston Massacre and later the Boston Tea Party in 1773. Prominent names of early American history such as John Hancock and John Adams helped unite the colonies and put together laws and frameworks that would later become a part of the Constitution. These events fueled dissent against the crown and eventually led to the beginning of the American Revolution when the thirteen colonies United to push out British rule and forces.
Massachusetts is the 7th smallest state in the United States and is the 3rd most densely populated with the majority of the population living within Greater Boston. The state has the Atlantic Ocean to the east and touches New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Vermont and New York. To the west, the Atlantic coastal plain gives way to more rural areas with the Berkshire Mountain range to the far west of the state. The Commonwealth hosts many natural parks, beaches, and hiking trails that offer opportunities to observe the local flora and fauna.
A key generator to the state’s economy is tourism. Locations like Boston, Salem, Plymouth and Cape Cod attract history buffs from around the world. At Minute Men National Historic Park, visitors can trace the route taken by the British soldiers leading to the first shot of the Revolutionary War in Lexington, and commemorate the Minutemen and Paul Reverse famous ride to warn them of encroaching British Forces. Beautiful Cape Cod offers miles of beaches for residents and tourists the enjoy the sun and sea or venture out in the ocean to view multiple species of whale.
As home to some of the world’s top Universities such as Harvard and MIT, Massachusetts attracts students from around the world looking to pursue careers in biotechnology, health, law, and engineering. Schools like Harvard, Tufts University and Boston University offer top medical research and education program working with a number of teaching hospitals and research facilities. With a growing population, the need for healthcare professionals will continue to rise in the state.
Practicing healthcare can be very expensive and practice managers and healthcare care professionals are constantly looking for ways to cut costs. An area that healthcare professionals are overpaying is the disposal of regulated medical waste. Medical or biohazard waste are any waste items generated in the treatment of humans and animals that could potentially contain infectious agents. Medical waste needs to be picked up by a licensed waste hauler and properly sterilized before they can be disposed of.
MedPro Disposal provides cost-effective, compliant medical waste disposal, pharmaceutical disposal and OSHA compliance training to the state of Massachusetts. We were formed out of the need for lower prices for regulated medical waste disposal back in 2009 and have grown to offer our services in over 46 states. Our prices are based on three key factors unique to each client. Their location, the volume of waste generated, and the frequency they require pick-ups. From there, we will build a custom quote to ensure they are receiving the best possible price.
In addition to red bag and biohazard medical waste, we also offer a sharps disposal program. Sharps such as used needles and syringes need to be placed in a puncture proof container with a sealed lid. By having a licensed medical waste service safely remove these items, you are mitigating the chance of sharps ending up in the solid waste stream harming waste workers. MedPro also offers a sharps mail back program. This is a great option for low quantity generators as it is more effective. We will ship FDA approved containers and shipping boxes complete with return shipping label. All containers and boxes meet state and federal regulations and are approved by the US Postal Service.
Our OSHA Compliance program ensure all practices and employees are properly trained and knowledgeable on the latest compliancy laws and regulations such as DOT, EPA, and OSHA. Our online portal is a user friendly platform that makes it simple for administrators to manage their team and keep track of all certifications and training modules. We will assist with the onboarding process and are available to answer any questions.
MedPro has the Commonwealth of Massachusetts covered when it comes to cost effective medical waste disposal. We have the flexibility and coverage to reach your location and ensure your individual needs are being met and at price that makes sense.
