The state capital of New York, Albany was the first European settlement in the state. It was settled by Dutch colonists who specialized in fur trading at Fort Nassau and Fort Orange. This fur trade attracted settlers who formed a village called Beverwijck near Fort Orange. In 1664 the English took over the settlement and renamed the city Albany. The charter of Albany is the oldest surviving settlement of the original thirteen colonies, and possibly the longest-running municipal government in the western hemisphere.Albany Medical Center and Albany Memorial Hospital primarily serve the residents of Albany when they become ill, along with countless outpatient clinics in the surrounding area. While it is their job to nurse sick residents back to health, it is MedPro Disposal’s job to dispose of the medical waste created by this treatment. Medical waste is regulated on both the state and federal level, and cannot be disposed of in the normal trash stream due to it often being contaminated with blood-borne pathogens. These pathogens have the ability to spread life-threatening diseases, and can be extremely hazardous to human health.What exactly is considered medical waste? IV bags, used sharps, soaked bandages, gauze pads, and even human tissue are all considered medical waste, to name a few. Following the use of these items on an individual, it is crucial that they are disposed of immediately in the proper medical waste container, in order to prevent the contamination of sterile environments, which, according to the CDC, resulted in 17 million cases of infections in hospitals in 2011. MedPro Disposal is committed to reducing that number, keeping the residents and environment of Albany healthy.Medical waste removal is not the only service we offer! MedPro also offers pharmaceutical disposal, as well as OSHA compliance training. Our pharmaceutical program is popular with pharmacies and senior care facilities in Albany, while our OSHA compliance portal satisfies the requirements of every facility who handles this type of waste being certified in OSHA compliance.If your facility frequently has old or unused medications on hand, then our pharmaceutical disposal program is for you! It is a convenient mail back program that prevents these medications from entering the water stream, which is detrimental to the health of wildlife and humans alike. MedPro Disposal will provide your facility with a 2.5 gallon bucket that you fill with these medications, and once it becomes full, you simply mail it to our disposal facility. Included with the bucket is a pre-paid shipping label already addressed, making everything extremely simple for you and your staff.As for OSHA compliance, our online portal eliminates the need for a costly outside consultant to come in and train your staff, resulting in a half day of lost time and revenue. The online portal is designed for an administrator to go in and assign job-specific training modules to individual employees to complete, or as a group, if desired. Once training is complete, all certificates of completion are stored in a central tab on the portal, which allows for quick referencing, should the need ever arise. MedPro’s online OSHA portal is the most comprehensive method of training your employees, and staying up to date on these trainings.New York is notorious for being an expensive state to live in, so allow MedPro Disposal to service your medical waste needs, all while reducing costs substantially. Our customers in Albany are consistently seeing savings in the 20-40% range compared to their previous vendors. This is money that can then be reinvested into their business, improving overall care and satisfactions.
Albany is a city of firsts. It is one of the first cities in the world to have public water mains, sewers, gas lines and electricity, and this infrastructure attracted substantial new industry to the city during the 19th century. It also boasts one of the first commercial airports in the world, which went on to become Albany International Airport.
A center of higher education for over a century, Albany’s economy relies heavily on state government services, along with the technology industry which is becoming increasingly abundant in Albany. The city is known for its rich history, commerce, culture and schools, and it won the All-America City Award in 1991 as well as 2009.
During and after the Revolutionary War, Albany County saw a great increase in real estate transactions. After Horatio Gates' win over John Burgoyne at Saratoga in 1777, the upper Hudson Valley was generally at peace as the war raged on elsewhere. Prosperity was soon seen all over Upstate New York. Migrants from Vermont and Connecticut began flowing in, noting the advantages of living on the Hudson and trading at Albany, while being only a few days' sail from New York City. Albany reported a population of 3,498 in the first national census in 1790, an increase of almost 700% since its chartering
