Whether you go watch the Steelers grind it out against the nation’s finest, or catch 9 innings of some Pittsburgh Pirates baseball, any season you find yourself in Pittsburgh, you will surely not have trouble finding fun. Pittsburgh is the second-largest city in the state, with a population well over 2.5 million people. Located at the convergence of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers, the steel industry became its nickname as a result of the plethora of steel bridges situated all around the city. To outline exactly how many bridges, Pittsburgh has an exact 446 bridges. In addition to the many steel bridges, roughly 300 steel-related businesses call Pittsburgh home. For a good majority of the 20th century, Pittsburgh hung right behind major hubs such as New York and Chicago in regards to corporate headquarters employment. Believe it or not, Pittsburgh had the most United States stockholders per capita. Whether you find yourself exploring the large skyscrapers in the Golden Triangle or the four surrounding areas, you will not be let down. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has plenty to see, and any local will tell you just that. The downtown area has 30 skyscrapers, and nine of them are well over 500 feet in height. Surprisingly enough, the tallest tower in the U.S. Steel Tower, measuring in at 841 feet. It is highly suggested you make your way to the North Side of town. Many moons ago this was known as Allegheny City, which conducted itself as a city separate from Pittsburgh. Now today, the North Side of town is home to many neighborhoods and incredibly-styled architecture. Largely composed of 19th century style architecture, many of these buildings are made from brick or stone accompanied by decorative wood and tile, even slate roofs or stained glass. This side of town is where you can find PNC Park, or the Penn Brewery. In addition to the many attractions on the North Side, it is also home to the Allegheny General Hospital. Founded on December 4, 1882, this hospital has been around longer than you may have imagined. With a hospital at this size, many patients come in and out every single day. Lots of treatments are taking place, and large amounts of biohazardous medical waste is generated.MedPro Disposal wants to make an impact on keeping the citizens of Pittsburgh safe and compliant. Disposal of medical waste can be tricky, so we will do our best to catch you up to speed on what exactly falls into this category.Let’s begin by defining what exactly biohazard medical waste is. Diving into an example suits people best. Gloves, for example, are used to treat patients on a daily basis. Once those gloves have been used to carry out those procedures, those gloves immediately need to find themselves in a medical waste bin. In accordance to gloves, gauze pads, bandages, syringes, is all biohazard medical waste once it has been used. A troubling statistic was released in 2011 by the CDC which highlighted roughly 17 million individuals in America alone were infected by improper and unsafe handling of their medical waste disposal. These are issues that we have solutions for, however. We handle these wastes on a daily basis, so leave it to the professionals to keep any issues like this from happening.
Furthermore, keeping your non-hazardous and hazardous waste separate can be confusing as we have seen. Keeping things such as sharps, gauze pads, or used gloves separate from the non-hazardous materials is essential to staying safe and compliant. If at any time the two meet, all of that material generated is now deemed hazardous waste, and must follow the correct disposal procedures from there on out.
Safety is and should be every facility’s first order of business. We are only as good as our weakest link here at MedPro Disposal. We are continuously tweaking our operations, assuring all customer’s safety and compliance with every pickup and disposal carried out.
We offer many different services at MedPro Disposal. We will touch base on a couple of them. With a large city such as Pittsburgh, our RMW service, otherwise known as medical waste disposal, is key to getting rid of the large amounts of waste a hospital such as Allegheny Health Network would generate.
Another service we offer here at MedPro is our OSHA Compliance training. We stand by this program to the highest degree. This online portal keeps facilities and healthcare providers up to date with the proper education and procedures related to safety and handling of medical waste. OSHA estimates that near 5.6 million healthcare professionals are handling medical waste on a daily basis. As anyone would tell you, that’s a very large sum of people, and a lot of room for error. OSHA Compliance training is the solution to that problem, and we suggest everyone be certified and up to speed.

Pittsburgh dialect is so distinct, some locals who speak Pittsburghese have their own name: Yinzers. From what I understand, "Yinz" is kind of like "ya'll." Some examples of Pittsburghese: City Chicken = pork or veal cubes on a wooden skewer. Crudded milk = cottage cheese Gum band = rubber band Red up = clean up or tidy up
