Tips for Hiring a Hazardous Waste Removal Service

We don’t often like to think about biohazardous waste removal, but it has to be done. Whether you’re working for Johns Hopkins or a small, independent dentist office, hazardous waste is a reality of the job. Disposing of it needs to be done properly, and it cannot simply be tossed into the dumpster with the rest of your waste. Each type of hazardous waste also requires a different form of removal and disposal. Read on to see how you can be sure you’re working with only the best waste removal service. Tips for Hiring a Hazardous Waste Removal Service

Search for a Reputation

Whether it’s a Google review or a Facebook comment, reputation is easy to find, these days. With a simple internet search, it’s easy to find how a company ranks against its competitors. While claims of success on a website can be accurate and impressive, skeevy companies will try to fool you with fake statistics and false customer testimonies on their website. For instance, BWS has a perfect 5 star rating on Google, accompanied by 24 solid reviews. Each reviewer is a real person that can be verified on Google. This is how you know a company has the right kind of reputation.

Compare Pricing

Don’t jump at the first company you see just because it has a high rating. Try to compare and contrast this rating with the price of the service. Too cheap, and you run the risk of working with a less-than-helpful company. Too expensive, and you could be gouging yourself of valuable resources that could have been used elsewhere. BWS has no monthly contracts, no monthly fees, and no hidden fees. This already makes them superior to many other waste removal companies that will try to charge you monthly simply for working with them. This is a prime example of a Maryland waste removal service trying to siphon more money than they’re worth. Don’t underestimate the power of calling for a cost estimate. More often than not, the company will give you a free quote, and you can use that to weigh your options.


Working with a company that is 100% OSHA compliant is a necessity. You’ll want to look for proper licensing, and you’ll want to inquire about their OSHA rating. It should be nearly or completely perfect. Don’t accept anything less when it comes to hazardous waste removal. Poorly handled waste is dangerous in many aspects. Improper handling could lead to legal repercussions for your company. There’s also the environment to consider--is this waste removal company dedicated to following code and procedure in order to create a safer environment? BWS does this, while also keeping a completely green contract system. This is what you’ll need to search for. As a locally owned business, we know how important it is to remove hazardous waste in a way that protects our environment and our livelihood. Contact BWS today to get started on your contract!

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.

Melissa C, Patriot Chiropractic

Dr. Louis Sachs, DDS

I ran a dental charity for many years, organizing huge clinics to treat those in need. BWS donated their waste disposal services for every clinic for many years, and they continue to do so to this day. This is always a huge job, and they are always reliable, dedicated, and fun to work with. They know what it means to give back.
