Regulated Waste Training Saves Money and Lives

Everyone on the planet generates waste. At home, we usually have our own waste disposal and recycling routines and a waste management company that picks up our waste on a weekly basis. But what about in the workplace? Proper waste management is just as important in our place of business. Making sure your employees and coworkers are properly trained on the correct disposal of regulated waste can save you time, money, and can potentially save lives. Let’s find out how beneficial this really is: regulated waste training saves lives

Saves Money

Generating waste and having it removed from your place of business costs money. Disposing of different waste items in their proper containers ensures that you are not paying more to dispose of certain types of waste. For example putting general, non-hazardous waste in a sharps container. Along these same lines, you can hold waste training sessions in your own building, rather than paying to send employees to train elsewhere.

Saves Lives

If you work in a medical or laboratory setting, you know that your business generates some waste that is considered potentially hazardous. This type of waste requires special disposal procedures, as it may contain sharp needles or tools that are contaminated with bacteria or infection. In the worst cases of medical waste being disposed of improperly, an infection can spread to persons handling the waste and in rare cases may lead to death.

Saves Time

Luckily for business owners, there are companies that specialize in regulated waste management who are highly educated on how to properly handle and dispose of all kinds of waste. You can always hold training sessions in your place of business to ensure that your employees and coworkers are educated on proper waste disposal practices, but you have a very simple alternative. Hire a waste management services company! Outsourcing this activity to a professional company will save you time on training and give you confidence that proper practices are being carried out every step of the way.

Rebecca Crouse, Randolph Macon Academy

We used BWS for sharps disposal at a doctor's office. I saw their bright truck in the parking lot at work which lead me to call for a quote. They responded to my inquiry quickly and thoroughly, answering all my questions. They gave me pricing that was very reasonable, and lower than many companies I checked. They were a pleasure to communicate with via phone and email, no phone tag! The truck arrived the day and time we planned. The driver was very personable and easy to communicate with. The people I interacted with seem to understand the value of customer service. I would highly recommend them. They will take care of you.
