Medical and Biohazardous Waste Disposal Buffalo, NY

Medical and Biohazardous Waste Disposal Buffalo, NY

Located on the eastern shores of Lake Erie, Buffalo is New York’s 2nd most populous city with 258,703 residents. Buffalo grew substantially in the 19th and 20th centuries, thanks in part to the Erie Canal, railroads, and Lake Erie itself, which provided fresh water and an ample trade route to the Midwest.Home to two private healthcare systems, the city of Buffalo creates enormous amounts of medical waste, as can be imagined with a combined 11 hospitals and countless outpatient clinics. The catch is, this waste cannot be disposed of in a standard landfill, as there are many federal and state regulations governing medical waste, due to the potential health concerns for residents and the environment of Buffalo alike.These regulations are the reason MedPro Disposal exists and is one of the nation’s premier medical waste haulers. Medical waste can be classified as many things, but a good rule of thumb is, anything that comes into contact with bodily fluids is medical waste. This can include, but is not limited to: IV bags, soaked bandages, gauze pads, human tissue, and used sharps. Immediately following the use of these items on a patient, they must be disposed of in the medical waste container in order to prevent the contamination of sterile environments. In 2011, over 17 million cases of infection were reported in hospitals due to the contamination of these environments, according to the CDC. MedPro Disposal is committed to reducing that number and ensuring the safe disposal of this waste.When medical waste is picked up in Buffalo, it either goes to one of our incineration facilities, or to an autoclave. Incineration is what it sounds like, where the waste is burned according to EPA regulations, and disposed of that way. Autoclaving is more advanced, and involves the waste being put into a giant, stainless steel cylinder with doors one each end. One the waste is carted into the autoclave, intense heat and steam is pumped into the autoclave and the waste is sterilized that way. Following this process, the waste is then shredded into a fine texture and disposed of in a designated landfill.Along with medical waste disposal, MedPro also offers pharmaceutical disposal as well as OSHA compliance training. Our pharmaceutical disposal program is for old and unused medications, and is designed to be hassle-free for our customers. Your facility will receive a 2.5 gallon bucket along with a pre-paid shipping label. You fill the bucket with the old and unused medications, and once it’s full, simply attach the shipping label and send it off to our disposal facility. Once this occurs, your facility is provided with a brand new bucket, ready to be filled up again. Filling this bucket may take anywhere from 1 week to 1 year, which is why MedPro only charges a per-bucket fee, rather than paying monthly for a service you may not even be using.Complementing our disposal programs is our OSHA compliance portal. It is an online portal that allows an entire workforce to be trained at their own pace, eliminating the need to shut down for half a day and hire an outside consultant – a practice that wastes valuable money and work time. With our online portal, an administrator can go in and assign job-specific training for an individual or group, and then allows for their progress to be tracked and reminders to be sent. Once an employee finishes their training, all certificates of completion are stored in a central tab in the portal, which allows for fast and easy viewing, should the need ever arise. Our online portal is the most robust and comprehensive method of ensuring all your employees are OSHA compliant.

Medical costs are constantly rising, and facilities are constantly looking for ways to counter these increased costs. They are repeatedly turning to MedPro Disposal to save them money on this required service, and our customers in the Buffalo area consistently see savings in the 20-40% range. That’s thousands of dollars that can be better reinvested into your business, improving the overall satisfaction of your patients and customers.

About Buffalo:

When the Erie Canal was built in 1825, it included a port-of-call at Buffalo for settlers heading west. The canal brought a surge in population with it, and led to Buffalo incorporating as a city in 1832. In the early 20th century, hydroelectric power generated from Niagara River powered local mills and the city was nicknamed “City of Light” due to the widespread electric lighting. In 1843, the world’s first steam-powered grain elevator was built in Buffalo, and allowed for faster unloading of lake freighters as well as faster transport to barges, canal boats and rail cars.

The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, one of the city’s most prominent art institutions, can be found performing at Kleinhans Music Hall. The city has jumpstarted the career of many jazz and classical musicians, as well as mainstream bands including The Quakes and The Goo Goo Dolls.

Buffalo Little-Known Facts

Prior to the Iroquois occupation of the region, the region was settled by the Neutral Nation. Later, the Senecas of the Iroquois Confederacy conquered the Neutrals. In 1804, Joseph Ellicott, a principal agent of the Holland Land Company, designed a radial street and grid system that branches out from downtown like bicycle spokes. During the War of 1812, on December 30, 1813, Buffalo was burned by British forces. On November 4, 1825 the Erie Canal was completed with Buffalo strategically positioned at the western end of the system. At the time, the population was about 2,400. The Erie Canal brought a surge in population and commerce which led Buffalo to incorporate as a city in 1832, with a population of about 10,000 people.
