Maryland, one of the 13 states that founded the United States of America, home to over 6 million people and almost 80,000 horses!

Sometimes called America in Miniature because of the wide geographical variety, ranging from mountains to dunes to forests and rivers. In the same day you could ski in the mountains, hike in the forest, buggy around the dunes and take a whitewater rafting trip!

As the fourth smallest, yet most densely populated state, the amount of variety you can see in Maryland is amazing.

Maryland is also claimed to be the birthplace of religious freedom in the United States. One of the main reasons people moved to Maryland was to escape the prosecution of Catholics in the United Kingdom. Without Maryland, there may be no First Amendment!

Air, Space and Defense

According to the Maryland Department of Commerce the main key industries today are:

  • Aerospace & Defense
  • Energy & Sustainability
  • BioHealth & Life Science
  • IT & Cybersecurity
  • Military & Federal,
  • Manufacturing

The 8,700 Aerospace and Defense companies make it the single largest industry in the state. With an average salary of $100,000 per year, over 130,000 jobs and 33 billion dollars in economic activity in 2015, it is also the most important industry in the state as far as economics go.

Third on the list of main industries in MD is Biohealth and Life Science. This includes jobs like doctors, nurses, medical research, and healthcare IT.

The health industry employed 39,000 people in 2015, paid 4 billion dollars in wages, and produced 15 billion dollars in economic activity for the state.

The Baltimore Sun reported that hospitals in Baltimore are looking to hire 1,000 new employees in 2016, mostly for entry level jobs to give underprivileged people an opportunity to get a fair paying career.

Waste, Cities and the Environment

With 100,000 healthcare workers statewide, and that number is quickly growing, Maryland’s hospitals treat over a million patients a year.

The MaryPIRG Foundation estimates that Maryland’s hospitals and various healthcare facilities generate 35,000 tons or 70,000,000 pounds of medical waste every year. While Maryland has some of the most thorough and strict medical waste disposal regulations around, pollution still happens.

Be it a nurse accidentally throwing infectious waste in the wrong garbage bin or a diabetic throwing a syringe in their garbage can, both are pollution and both harm Maryland. The only way to stop improper disposal of biohazardous waste is through education.

Thankfully, we have a ton of resources focused on teaching proper disposal, regulations, and insight into how waste is actually disposed – all for free.

If you want to ensure your medical waste is going to the right place, give us a call and get a free quote right now. On average, MedPro Disposal customers save 30% off their previous medical waste disposal vendor, and we provide the highest quality customer service around.
