Every day medical facility employees all across Georgia are making a very expensive mistake.
They throw food, paper and other non-hazardous waste into their medical waste stream, unaware that it can cost up to ten times more to dispose of medical waste as it does non-hazardous waste.
How prevalent is this practice? The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that 50% – 70% of a medical facility’s waste ends up in their bio-hazardous waste stream (red bags) even though only 2% – 3% of their total waste can be classified as infectious waste.
Medical waste disposal companies have known about this for years, but they won’t share these facts or lift a finger to help you reduce your medical waste because more waste from you means more money for them.
Med Dog Waste Management is different. We believe that if we take care of our customers by helping them reduce their medical waste to save money, they’ll become long-term customers.
