The state is the location of the first New England colonies when the Pilgrims landed in Plymouth in 1620.

Practicing healthcare can be very expensive and practice managers and healthcare care professionals are constantly looking for ways to cut costs. An area that healthcare professionals are overpaying is the disposal of regulated medical waste. Medical or biohazard waste are any waste items generated in the treatment of humans and animals that could potentially contain infectious agents. Medical waste needs to be picked up by a licensed waste hauler and properly sterilized before they can be disposed of.
MedPro Disposal provides cost-effective, compliant medical waste disposal, pharmaceutical disposal and OSHA compliance training to the state of Massachusetts. We were formed out of the need for lower prices for regulated medical waste disposal back in 2009 and have grown to offer our services in over 46 states. Our prices are based on three key factors unique to each client. Their location, the volume of waste generated, and the frequency they require pick-ups. From there, we will build a custom quote to ensure they are receiving the best possible price.
In addition to red bag and biohazard medical waste, we also offer a sharps disposal program. Sharps such as used needles and syringes need to be placed in a puncture proof container with a sealed lid. By having a licensed medical waste service safely remove these items, you are mitigating the chance of sharps ending up in the solid waste stream harming waste workers. MedPro also offers a sharps mail back program. This is a great option for low quantity generators as it is more effective. We will ship FDA approved containers and shipping boxes complete with return shipping label. All containers and boxes meet state and federal regulations and are approved by the US Postal Service.
