Dallas Medical Waste Disposal
Since our founding in 1994, Sharps Medical Waste Services has been located in Texas, with corporate offices located near the Texas Medical Center. We serve physicians and healthcare providers throughout the Dallas area. In fact, we provide medical waste disposal services to a wide range of providers such as veterinarians, surgery centers, and dentists. We also provide support to home health agencies and long-term care facilities.
Our cost-effective medical disposal services are available to any organization that needs an effective way to handle sharps and biohazardous materials or medical waste. To make it convenient for customers, we can arrange for waste to be picked up or for sharps to be delivered by our USPS-authorized mailback program. Some clients decide to use a combination of both options.
The disposal and management of medical waste is a highly controlled industry. Special handling techniques and procedures are required to maintain regulatory compliance at each facility. There are also requirements to ensure the safety of the public and every patient and employee in the facility.
In Dallas, organizations that produce regulated medical waste (RMW) get oversight from several federal agencies. Controlled pharmaceutical waste is regulated by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). Entities that use a pickup service have oversight from the Department of Transportation (DOT). The United States Postal Service (USPS) authorizes mailback medical waste programs. OSHA ensures worker safety. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) operates at the state level to regulate facilities that generate, transport, or dispose of medical waste.
These agencies have the responsibility of inspecting and regulating any organization that handles regulated medical waste. This can include how it is contained and stored. They will look at how items are packaged and labeled. Transportation and treatment of waste are also regulated. They will also look for proof that staff has received the prescribed training. Organizations that are found to be noncompliant either at the state or federal level face stiff penalties that can interrupt normal business flow. Additionally, being penalized can harm a healthcare organization’s reputation and elicit unfavorable publicity.
To avoid these situations and protect staff and patients, it’s important to choose an experienced medical waste management company in Dallas. Not only does it reduce overall risk, but you can also be assured that all materials are handled within the environmental standards. We have more information on Texas Medical Waste Disposal regulations available.
