Why did you reach out to a medical waste disposal company?

Here are some of the most common reasons we find physicians or facilities reach out to us.

1. We Wanted to Cut Costs

One of the top reasons people usually reach out to a medical waste disposal company is to see if they could be spending less on this service. Medical waste disposal service is not something that is usually thought about on a daily basis. Sometimes it’s not thought of at all until someone comes and takes away the full container. When physicians sit down to look at how they can cut costs, eventually medical waste disposal services comes up as something that has maybe been overlooked or not reconsidered recently.

2. The Doctor Asked Me To

We often get requests for quotes with the goal simply being to bring something back to a physician who asked for a quote. This could be for a number of reasons such as the physician wants to cut costs, is frustrated with current service, noticed he or she is over paying, or something else entirely. Regardless, it is important to get the most accurate quote possible for the doctor. This means you will need to find out some information you may not currently know such as how often your waste is picked up or how much you’re currently paying. Follow this guide to find all the necessary information.

3. We’re Frustrated With Our Current Service

We hear ya! Unexpected price increases, hidden fees, and unexplained surcharges can be seriously frustrating! You may think you’ve gotten an accurate quote on service and then when your bill arrives it’s way more than you expected. This is a definite sign it’s time to explore some other options. Medical waste disposal pricing should be simple and straightforward. Your invoices should be clear and there should never be any surprises. 

4. We’re Sick of Overpaying

In addition to simply being frustrated with service, we find many practices are sick of seeing a large price increase every time they get an invoice. To know you are paying nearly double or even triple what you started paying for a service that hasn’t changed just doesn’t make sense. In fact, most facilities are overpaying for their service by 30% or more!

5. I Opened a New Practice or Location

Take the time to find a vendor who strives to make it easy for practices to hit the ground running with simple medical waste and compliance service.

7. Our Container is Full and We Have No Pickup Scheduled

This can be frustrating and even dangerous depending on how full your container is. The best thing you can do to avoid this situation is get on a regular schedule with a trusted medical waste disposal company. A good company can customize your service to fit your exact needs and have pickups as frequently or infrequently as you need.
