  1.  You don’t 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.

  1. You frequently dispose of waste. Too frequently, in fact.

Frequent pickups mean transportation costs. It’s better to accurately forecast your medical waste volume instead of disposing of waste too frequently. Consider investing in larger waste storage containers to lengthen time between pick ups.

  1. Or you’re underusing your monthly service.

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.

  1. You’re not consolidating your waste.

Let’s say you’re a medical spa with multiple locations, but all produce the same medical waste on a daily basis. By consolidating your waste to one central location, you save on transportation time which translates into savings for your business.

  1. You’re paying for hidden fees.

Always read the fine print. Some medical waste removal companies tack on hidden surcharges. MedXwaste prides itself on transparent, straight-forward pricing with no hidden fees.

If you find that you’re overpaying for your medical waste disposal service, take a closer look at your needs and make sure your service takes into account factors such as volume and frequency.
