New York State is home to more than 19.5 million people according to the U.S. Census Bureau. In 2014, less than half of those humans, 8.5 million, resided in New York City. That leaves approximately 11 million people strewn across the rest of New York’s 47,000-plus square miles. Large cities and notable towns including Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Williamsville, and the state capitol- Albany, are spread throughout Upstate New York, and have plenty to show for themselves, even though they may not be the first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions the Empire State. MedPro provides New York medical and biohazardous waste disposal all over the state.
What’s Going on in Upstate New York?
From the mountainous Catskills to the Great Lakes, New York is full of geographical, historical and natural intrigue. There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventures as well as small city escapes for those who know where to look. The state touts one of the country’s riches wine regions and hosts tourists from all over the world who come to see its official natural wonder: Niagara Falls. Indeed, New York State has a lot more to offer than just New York City.
New York’s second largest city sits on the Erie Canal at the northeastern tip of Lake Erie, about 20 miles south of Niagara Falls. Buffalo has a bustling waterfront district and is home to top-notch art galleries, restaurants and concert venues. It’s touted the fourth safest city from natural disasters in the United States according to a 2013 CBS report, with the most likely falling out from Mother Nature being some heavy snow. But Buffalo embraces the cold weather as well, with a lineup of great winter festivals including one known for a giant ice maze.
Another Great Lake city, Rochester is located northeast of Buffalo, on the southern edge of Lake Ontario. Its 210,500-person population makes it the third largest city in New York. Perhaps more notable than its position to the Great Lakes is Rochester’s proximity to the Finger Lakes, a line of 11 long, thin lakes surrounded by vineyards and wineries. In fact, several of the 100-plus wineries in the Finger Lakes area are located in Rochester. This Upstate New York destination is loaded with green space, touting more than 12,000 acres of parkland, and known for hosting more than 140 festivals and events each year.
On the banks of the Hudson River, not far from the western Massachusetts border, sits Albany, the capital city of New York. Almost 100,000 people call the city home. In recent years, the growing tech industry has attracted more professionals to Albany which is at the heart of what is now referred to as the “Tech Valley” in New York. Several colleges and Universities have settled into Albany including the University of Albany and the Albany Medical Center. A central hub for New York State culture, music and entertainment, there is never a shortage of things to do or explore in this Upstate New York city.
Located in central New York, Syracuse is seated squarely in the Finger Lakes region and is home to Syracuse University. The Erie Canal runs through the city and is lined in several places with beautiful parks and trails. For more than 100 years, New Yorkers have flocked to the city for the 12-day State Fair that has evolved into a large tourist attraction and must-attend event for many.
Tucked away between Buffalo and Niagara lies one of New York’s most famed villages- Williamsville. Like some of its larger city neighbors, Williamsville became a mill town in the 19th century, but never saw the population boom cities like Buffalo and Rochester experienced. Now home to just over 5,000 people Williamsville is known for its Main Street parades and proud business district.
How’s Health in Upstate New York?
Elite Medical Colleges are spread throughout New York, from Cornell and Columbia in New York City, to the Rochester School of Medicine and Buffalo School of Medicine located upstate. Some of the nation’s best hospitals and research facilities are located across New York, with some of the largest ones in New York City. In fact, more than 565,000 people in New York City alone are employed in the health care industry. It’s a big deal.
New York Medical and Biohazardous Waste Disposal
As one of the most populous states in the entire U.S. with one of the most bustling health care industries, there’s no question New York produces a lot of medical waste. Where there is medical waste, there must be responsible New York medical and biohazardous waste disposal.
Hospitals, doctor offices, dentist offices, veterinarian clinics and healthcare facilities all over New York generate human blood and pathological waste, sharp needles and syringes, cultures and stocks, and a slew of other materials that require proper biohazardous waste disposal.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation regulates how facilities get rid of the medical waste to protect the environment and the people who may come in contact with the hazardous materials.
New York medical and biohazardous waste disposal companies must have permits to dispose of material. They must properly track and report each disposal and adhere to the State’s specific rules and standards.
Following the finer points of biohazard waste disposal is a waste of time, effort and money for medical professionals who are better served sticking to what they do best – caring for people and animals in need. That’s where MedPro Disposal comes in.
