Waste Treatment Locations


Small businesses (and even many larger businesses) usually have a waste disposal company take away their medical waste for treatment and disposal. It is easy to find ones that service your area. Stericycle is the biggest company in the industry, but there are many.

These companies like to work on a subscription basis or other contract, rather than hauling away one-time waste. If you establish a relationship with them, they might provide waste containers. They will also have preferences for packaging and storage.

Is there an industry association for these medical waste companies? We are not aware of any such association in the United States. At one time there was a Medical Waste Management Association (MWMA) but it ended operations in 2018. Project Greenhealth is an organization for healthcare providers "committed to the integration of sustainability principles and practices".

Maintain good relations with your medical waste company.

Yes, you are their customer, but you should particularly avoid a legal dispute with a company that handles regulated waste, because of the liabilities involved. Ideally, you hire them to solve your problems, but if something goes wrong with the waste after it leaves your facility, the regulators may still come after you.
