Stretching upwards of 140 square miles, Philadelphia is a city known for many greats sports victories and phenomenal food. Aside from the entertainment district, the city’s prominent universities and colleges put Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on the map. Commonly referred to as “Philly”, Philadelphia is the largest city in the state. Overall in the United States, Philadelphia is the fifth most populated city. Perfectly centered between two major rivers, economic and cultural strength is bread here. Back in 1682, Philly came to be all thanks to a man by the name of William Penn. This served as the capital of the Pennsylvania Colony. A little under a decade later, during the American Revolution, Philadelphia served as the middle ground for the Founding Fathers to meet. Later they moved on to sign the Declaration of Independence in 1776 in the great confines of Philadelphia. Many don’t know the thoughtful planning that went into creating the city, otherwise known as “Center City”. William Penn’s plan was that of straight and long streets running east and west, and north and south. From this landscape, easy travel and open space would result. Even fire prevention was a key determinant in this layout. Philadelphia’s architecture has a rich history, dating back to colonial times. The earliest architecture dealt with logs, but brick structure came quickly to replace it. Reaching into the early 1800s, the city was flourished with Georgian-style architecture, which you can see in the Independence Hall and even the main church, Christ Church. Much of Philadelphian homes today are still in the Victorian scheme, but are constructed in rows, referred to as row houses. The second-largest employer in the Philadelphia district is the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Serving upwards of 1.5 million people spells many needs for medical attention. Keeping your city’s residents healthy is not easy, especially with numbers like Philadelphia is obligated to serve. MedPro Disposal understands how challenging it can be to keep up. From Pennsylvania Hospital to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, MedPro Disposal can bring a solution to the mass quantities of medical waste being generated. Medical waste disposal may seem like an easy service. In the grand scheme of things, it is. Yet, the government has regulations and guidelines to follow that make it a complicated service if you aren’t a professional in the field.First, let’s begin by defining what exactly medical waste really is. Any item that comes into contact with bodily fluids in the diagnosis, treatment, and immunization of a patient is deemed biohazardous medical waste. Disposal in the past was done by separating the medical waste in a bag and then disposing of it like any old waste. Research found that this method to disposal was leading to many viruses and harmful diseases being spread. If professionals did not realize this was taking place, outbreaks were soon to come. Say a patient were to come in contact with a waste like that of which we just described. Blood-borne infections are bound to occur. This is why MedPro Disposal came in to the medical waste field. Our job is simply stated. We know the parameters to keep your practice running smoothly, and how to handle that medical garbage properly.MedPro offers those red biohazardous bags that line the red container. You see them in every doctor’s office and hospital. These bins keep the environment safe. Whether it is sharps, needles, or gauze pads, these bins serve that exact purpose.
Keeping your practice up to date with the correct handling and safety instructions is key, and required. Our OSHA Compliance training is one of our services we truly stand by. OSHA estimated that roughly 5.6 million healthcare professionals handle their medical waste on a daily basis. If this is not carried out correctly, that is when the issues will arise.

The online portal is very easy to access, all the while easy to monitor your faculty and their progress. Each representative receives their own sign in. From there they start the modules, assess their knowledge at the end of each program, and furthermore come out fine tuned in the safe handling of medical waste.
MedPro also is proud to offer pharmaceutical disposal. The Pharmaceutical program is simplistic and cost effective. From OTC to Rx, even controlled medications, our pharmaceutical bins keep these harmful medications from any sort of mishandling.
Our Sharps Disposal is top-notch as well. The FDA recommends all practices follow two steps in order to keep their sharps disposal complaint. Placing all of your needles and sharps in the verified containers immediately after use is the first order of business. When filling these containers, never fill them over ¾’s full. Once you have reached that point, it’s time for a new container and the old one must be disposed of. This eliminates any room for error.
