Your business has needs when it comes to managing waste streams – from medical waste disposal to pharmaceuticals to HIPAA-compliant data and document destruction, MedPro Disposal leads the industry in offering compliant solutions that don’t break the bank.
Medical waste is broadly classified as any item that comes into contact with body fluids. Specifically, it is any solid waste that is generated in the diagnosis, treatment or immunization of humans. This type of waste was once collected in special bags and plastic boxes in clinical settings and then disposed of like normal trash. However, this process was quickly found to spread diseases and viruses and potentially cause outbreaks.
The red biohazard waste containers and bags that are seen throughout hospitals and doctors’ offices are used to safely remove sharps, needles, and IV catheters that contain any human blood or bodily fluid. Medical waste also includes paper towels, wipes, gloves, syringes without needles, bandages or dressings with small amounts of dry blood or fluid, and any other material from medical care. Syringes with needles or sharp objects that can pierce through a plastic bag require a special storage container for additional protection.
We’ll destroy documents and data for you in the right way to ensure personal privacy is respected and you’re meeting HIPAA compliance laws. Do you have old hard drives, patient records, or other sensitive information you need securely destroyed? The answer is yes, of course.
Once complete, you even get a handy certificate of destruction. What does this all mean? You’ll save time, money, and worry all in one spot
We provide an environmentally-friendly and cost-effective solution for disposing of your facility’s unused or expired pharmaceutical waste.

If you’ve ever been to a doctor’s office, you’re already familiar with
regulated medical waste. Medical waste is made up of anything
that’s come into contact with potentially infectious materials,
bodily fluids, or could potentially injure someone. These are kept in
small, red sharps containers hung on the walls of medical offices, and
include medical waste like used gloves, gauze, and “sharps” ranging
from needles used for injections, tattooing, or acupuncture to scalpel
blades used in procedures like surgeries or microblading.
MedPro Disposal has two convenient options to dispose of distributed medications including both controlled (DEA schedules II-IV) and non-controlled substances. Often, this includes unused prescription medications or samples left in a healthcare office. You need to dispose of these items properly in order to be compliant, you know that, but did you also know that pharmaceutical waste poses a threat to our environment as well? Each year thousands of harmful medications are flushed down the toilet which causes a massive public health risk in the form of accidental exposure incidents. Stay compliant while protecting the environment.
Whether you’re brand new or have had service for years, we’re confident you’ll be happy in your choice
once you start service with MedPro Disposal. We’re proud to offer you solutions that meet your needs and will customize a plan just for your business.
