Edina is a city in Hennepin County, Minnesota, United States, and a first-ring suburb situated immediately southwest of Minneapolis. Edina began as a small farming and milling community in the 1860s. The population was 47,941 at the 2010 census.

Settled in the mid-1800s by Irish and Scottish families, Edina now boasts a population of over 47,000, top-ranked schools, a thriving business community, and many award-winning parks.
While not the biggest city in Minnesota, Edina’s 47,000 residents still need to be cared for when their health is in decline. Fairview Southdale Hospital supplies the area with top-notch healthcare and treatment, keeping the city healthy. A big hospital creates big amounts of medical waste, however, and that waste must be cared for properly in order to prevent the spread of infection and disease, which, according to the CDC, occurred 17 million times in hospitals during 2011.
That is where MedPro Disposal come in. We are the premier medical waste hauler in the greater Edina area, and are dedicated to keeping Edina’s beautiful landscape just that – beautiful.
What exactly is medical waste? Medical waste consists of items commonly used on patients in healthcare facilities, such as sharps, bandages, gauze pads, and IV bags. Once these items are used, they need to be disposed of properly and immediately. Due to the likely chance that they are covered in blood, these items have the potential to carry blood-borne pathogens, and must be sterilized before being disposed of.
MedPro Disposal utilizes two types of destruction techniques when dealing with medical waste. The first utilizes autoclave technology. An autoclave is essentially a giant stainless steel cylinder with doors on either end. The waste is inserted into the autoclave, which then creates heat and steam to sterilize the waste before it is shredded, and placed into a designated landfill. When an autoclave is not available or suitable for the type of waste at hand, it is incinerated at a designated medical waste incinerator.
While medical waste disposal may be our specialty, MedPro Disposal also offers pharmaceutical disposal as well as OSHA compliance training. Our pharmaceutical mail-back program is designed to be simple and efficient. We provide your facility with a 2.5 gallon bucket to fill with pharmaceuticals. Once it’s full, you attach the pre-paid label and mail it to our disposal facility. A new bucket is then sent out to your practice for you to begin filling up again.
According to OSHA, 5.6 million healthcare workers handle contaminated waste every day in the United States, and all must be trained properly. Our online OSHA portal allows you to assign job-specific tests, including HIPA and HazComm, to each employee that needs it. It also allows you to track individual progress and send reminders to employees who are behind.
MedPro Disposal has been so successful the past few years due in part to our low prices. We believe you should never overpay for a required service, and our current customers typically see a saving of 20-40% compared to their previous waste hauler. We don’t include hidden fees like energy or fuel surcharges, and only charge based on the frequency of pickups, as well as the amount of waste per pickup.
Originally a subsidiary of Richfield Township, Minnesota, Edina began with a population of only 17 families, most of whom had immigrated from Ireland due to the potato famine of the time. They were followed by settlers from New England, who also claimed land near Minnehaha Creek. Eventually, these settlers desired to found their own village, and so in 1888 a committee was founded to oversee the transition.
In 1956, Southdale, in the Minneapolis suburb of Edina, was the first enclosed climate-controlled suburban Shop50states.
