All our waste bins are sturdy with a safety locking lid to prevent removal or spillage of contents. Waste bins are delivered clean, fully lined and are designed to meet all safety requirements. Our waste bins are treated according to the standards set by E.P.A. Once collected they are transported using specially designed vehicles to an approved E.P.A. facility and are disposed of. The frequency of medical waste collection can be daily, weekly, fortnightly, monthly or at a frequency to suit every client’s requirements. We have been particularly successful at tailoring medical waste removal from a dentist and medical clinics generating smaller volumes of hazardous medical waste and where a more customised service is needed for the medical waste disposal and medical waste management.
