The Great Lakes State is the state’s motto that explains the beautiful scenery of the great state of Michigan. What separates Michigan from any other state is the unique two peninsulas that shape the state. The residents acknowledge the upper peninsula as the U.P. and the lower peninsula as the Straits of Mackinac. The two peninsulas are connected by the Mackinac Bridge, which makes it convenient for easy access across the state. The coastline is the longest freshwater state in the country, being surrounded by 4 of the 5 great lakes.

Michigan was first settled by Native Americans before being colonized by French explorers in the 17th century. Upon the defeat of France in 1762, the region became under British rule, and ceded to the independent United States after the British were defeated. In 1805 the territory of Michigan was formed and joined the union in January 26, 1837.  The state’s economy is very robust, but is ultimately known for the elite automobile industry it has created. The scenic upper peninsula is more popular of tourists, while the lower peninsula is home to manufacturing. The residents of Michigan have many activities and events that take place every year, making this state ranked among the top to live in.

Since the state has such a large freshwater coastline a lot of time is spent on the water by the Michigan population. One special place Michigan has to offer is Mackinac Island. Located on Lake Huron and covering only 3.8 square miles, this popular island attracts thousands of people every year. What makes this island extraordinary is the ban on motor vehicles. The Mackinac Island State Park preserves more than 80 percent of the island. The island is accessible by private boats, aircrafts, and during the winter months’ snowmobiles.

The state allows offers top-tier healthcare facilities the residents are fortunate to have access to. The nationally recognized healthcare practices include: Oakwood Hospital, Spectrum Health, and Beaumont Hospital. The top 3 facilities in the state of Michigan are all dedicated in providing the absolute best care to the community. Although, one major problem these facilities encounter is the accumulation of dangerous medical waste. It is very important these facilities take extreme caution when handling the removal process of the waste. To ensure proper safety of the patients and the surrounding community the disposal is an extensive process.

MedPro Disposal specializes in the removal process of medical waste in Michigan. Medical waste is broadly defined as any item that comes into contact with bodily fluids. Specifically, it is any solid waste that is generated in the diagnosis, treatment, or immunization of a human. We offer services including: medical waste removal services, pharmaceutical disposal, and OSHA compliance training to alleviate your medical concerns.

We simplify the removal process of this dangerous waste for our customers. There are only two pieces of information required in order for us to start your customized medical waste removal plan. The information is in regards to how much medical waste is being produced and how often you get the waste picked up. Once those factors are determined are team works with you to find the best fit to accommodate your needs. You will be provided with specific pick-up dates to remove the waste. Your facility would be provided with red-lined card board boxes to accumulate the waste. On your designated pick-up date, we will remove the boxes and provide you with new boxes to restart the process.

Another popular service we provide for the state of Michigan includes our unique pharmaceutical mail back program. The program includes a one-time purchase of a 2.5 gallon OTC/Rx or controlled pharmaceutical bucket. The bucket comes equipped with a pre-paid UPS return label for an easy disposal process. The bucket would collect all expired and unneeded medications your facility may have. The cost-effective program is compliant on all state and federal levels.

Michigan Little-Known Facts

Michigan is the only state to consist of two peninsulas. The Lower Peninsula, to which the name Michigan was originally applied, is often noted to be shaped like a mitten. The Upper Peninsula (often referred to as "the U.P.") is separated from the Lower Peninsula by the Straits of Mackinac, a five-mile channel that joins Lake Huron to Lake Michigan. The two peninsulas are connected by the Mackinac Bridge. The state has the longest freshwater coastline of any political subdivision in the world, being bounded by four of the five Great Lakes, plus Lake Saint Clair.
