Customer Industry: Dentistry
The Problem: Customer Needed Flexible Medical Waste Disposal Pickups
A dental office in Portland, Oregon didn’t want to commit to an expensive long-term contract and pay for a biohazardous-waste collection program they didn’t really need. They simply wanted a company that could collect their toxic and bio-hazardous wastes quickly and on an as needed basis.
Expert Guidance from a Team that Stays Current with Safety Standards and Regulations
Our team advised the customer on when they should call us to have their toxic and/or biohazardous waste removed. We educated them according to the EPA’s new rule on amalgam waste disposal and the myriad of other environmental and safety regulations regarding hazardous waste disposal, which can differ between states. We also advised them on some best practices to manage their waste safely and efficiently such as not inadvertently mixing hazardous and medical wastes, a common mistake we see in medical facilities.
We provide all the required disposal forms and schedule pickups that don’t interfere with their patient appointments or cause disruption to their regular business activities. As is standard with our turnkey services, we provide the creation of all required shipping documents, placards and labels for transport.
Our WasteXpress team has also helped this same customer, and several others, with the disposal of X-Ray equipment, their related chemicals and lead aprons.
After walking this customer through our process and providing them with a quote for our services they choose to do business with us, and we scheduled their first pick-up.
