During pre-modern times, the Eno and the Occoneechi people lived and farmed in current day Durham. They established a village named Adshusheer, and The Great Indian Trading Path has been traced back to Durham. More recently in the 1900s, the community of Durham has seen rapid growth due to the prosperity of the Bull Durham Tobacco Company which was later broken up due to US Antitrust laws. Today, the city of Durham boasts a population of 228,330 people who need to be taken care of when their health goes south. This job is left up to Duke Regional Hospital, along with the countless private practices in the Durham area. Treating all those individuals comes with a downfall: medical waste. Medical waste is different from normal waste because it is often contaminated with blood-borne pathogens and other infectious diseases. MedPro Disposal is proud to offer medical waste disposal services to the city of Durham and its surrounding area.IV bags, used sharps, syringes, body parts and soaked gauze pads are classified as medical waste, along with many other things. These materials must be disposed of properly in a medical waste container immediately after use in order to prevent the spread of pathogens and risk contaminating sterile environments. In 2011, the CDC reported that 17 million cases of infection occurred in US hospitals, and MedPro Disposal is here to help reduce that number. Most healthcare facilities in Durham are currently paying way too much for this simple, yet required service. Our customers in the area consistently see savings in the 20-40% range compared to their previous waste haulers, while also experiencing much-improved customer service. MedPro Disposal won’t make you jump through hoops when you have a question or concern about your account, and we have a designated team of customer advocates ready to help with whatever issue may arise. Along with servicing medical waste, MedPro Disposal is proud to offer pharmaceutical disposal programs as well as OSHA compliance to the Durham area. Our pharmaceutical mail-back program is tailored to be as efficient and as simple as possible for our customers. MedPro Disposal will send your practice a 2.5-gallon bucket that is designed to hold expired and unused medications. You fill the bucket at your own pace as your needs require, and once it’s full, simply attach the included pre-paid label and hand it over to your local shipping company. Then, MedPro Disposal will send your facility a new bucket to begin filling up again. Along with the previously listed services, MedPro Disposal offers OSHA compliance to facilities in the Durham area through a simple to use online portal. The portal allows administrator access in order to assign job-specific tests to individual employees or even assign group training. It is robust, cost-efficient, and even tracks each employee’s progress, which then allows an administrator to send completion reminders or save a certificate of completions for each employee. Our online portal discontinues the requirement of having to shut down for half a day, which wastes valuable work hours, in order to hire an outside training agent.
The past few years have seen a revitalization in the areas around downtown Durham, turning old tobacco factories into offices, condos and restaurants. Research Triangle Park, the nation’s first “science park” was formed in the 1950s and is now home to many technology companies. The area receives a steady supply of trained workers from Duke University, and has become a huge success, with companies from around the world setting up offices in the area. The economic success of Research Triangle Park is said to have more than made up the decline of the local economy after the decline of Durham’s tobacco and textile industries.
During the Civil Rights Movement, the six-month-long sit-in at Woolworth’s in Greensboro captured the nation’s attention, where Martin Luther King Jr. coined his famous rally cry, “Fill up the jails.”
The Eno and the Occoneechi, related to the Sioux, and the Shakori lived and farmed in the area which became Durham. They may have established a village named Adshusheer on the site. The Great Indian Trading Path has been traced through Durham, and Native Americans helped to mold the area by establishing settlements and commercial transportation routes.
