Why Does Cary North Carolina Need Medical Waste Disposal?

Medical Waste Disposal in Cary, North Carolina

The city of Cary North Carolina is the third-largest city in the Research Triangle metropolitan area. The triangle is an eight-county region between the cities of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill and given the name because of the three major research universities that inhabit the space; Duke University, North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Cary offers its residents and visitors many opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. The Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve covers 140 acres of land and is populated by Hemlock trees and other vegetation more accustomed to the Appalachian Mountains. Alternatively, Cary hosts the Fred G. Bond Metropolitan Park that offers lots of recreational and athletic fields and even a lake.

Keeping these parks pristine and healthy in the present is key to ensuring residents and visitors will be enjoying them for years to come. Everyone can play a role by ensuring their waste is being disposed of properly and safely.

The Town of Cary maintains its parks and grounds through its public works department. They have a strong conservation-friendly culture that provides a lot of responsible disposal options. They offer a weekly garbage collection and bi-weekly recycling service for residents. But what about items that can’t be thrown in the recycling or put in a landfill?

Household hazardous waste materials are items that should not be disposed of in landfills as they have the potential to lead to the contamination of the environment. These are items that may contain batteries, paints, gases, acids, or other caustic materials.

Luckily, Cary residents can take their household hazardous waste to the Wake County HHW Collection Center where these items can be properly disposed of.  Visit their site to see the list of items they accept.

Some wastes such as medical, biohazardous, or materials such as needles and syringes need to be disposed of through a certified medical waste disposal service. These are items that have come in contact with bodily fluids and could potentially lead to injury of waste haulers, spread disease, or contaminate the environment. This type of waste needs to be treated with chemicals, incinerated, or through an autoclave.  MedPro Waste Disposal can provide residents and businesses of Cary the solutions to all their medical waste disposal needs.
