Need to save on medical waste removal? Make sure you’re doing this…
Part of managing medical waste is managing a budget, and while the services you’re paying for may seem clear-cut, there are some costly missteps that could lead to overpayment by way of fines. These surprise items are not something one can prepare for in a yearly budget, so if you want to save on medical waste removal, here are some simple steps to take.
Segregate Your Waste!
Segregating medical waste and using properly marked containers is not only good practice, it’s safe and economical so that you can choose how and when, not to mention whom removes the waste for you. It’s important to note that not all medical waste can be packaged together, so it’s imperative to separate waste into containers for OSHA compliance. Failing to do so can result in fines and surcharges.
How’s Your Medical Waste Frequency and Volume?
Consider investing in larger waste storage containers to lengthen time between pick ups. Frequent pickups mean transportation costs. It’s better to accurately forecast your medical waste volume instead of disposing of waste too frequently.
Only Pay for What You Need
If you’re a smaller medical practice or a tattoo parlor that requires less frequent visits, then you’re probably overpaying for a monthly service contract. For smaller volume, consider call-only service so that you’re only paying for what you actually need.
