How Regulated Waste Services Save Money
Mar 15, 2017
A regulated waste service costs money, but it can also save your medical facility money overall. Typically, when we hear the saying “you’ve gotta spend money to make money”, it doesn’t really apply to our waste. But in this case it does. Here is how regulated waste services save money for your business and, in essence, make you money.
Correctly Classifying Waste
A regulated waste service will be able to correctly classify your waste so you can dispose of it properly and pay the correct amount. A Maryland regulated waste service will do this in a few ways:
- Lab Packing Services — A lab packing service helps those businesses who want to decommission or move a lab to identify wastes. If chemicals are miscategorized, it can not only cost more to dispose of these chemicals but could lead to dangerous exposure of toxic fumes.
- Regulated Waste Program Design — A regulated waste solutions company in Maryland can design a program to maximize recycling and reuse at your facility based on applicable regulations and the generator’s objectives
- Regulated Waste Training — Another way would be through effective training on what types of wastes go into the general waste bin vs. a regulated waste bin which costs much more money to dispose of.
Grouping Waste Materials
Once all of the waste material is received by your waste removal company, they will move the waste to their facility where they will prepare it to be moved to a waste disposal facility. During this process, your Maryland regulated waste service will be able to combine like materials and wastes, put them on pallets, and save you money by disposing of these wastes in bulk as opposed to one at a time.
If regulated waste is not disposed of correctly, it not only puts your employees, customers, and environment at risk but also brings with it a hefty fine. Proper compliance with local and federal waste regulations will ensure your business can avoid a hefty fine and the necessary expenses to clean up any mess. This is why it is important to partner with a Maryland regulated waste transporter with a flawless service record.
