At BWS, we offer a range of specialty services outside of traditional healthcare generated waste collection and disposal. Often times a variety of clients we service generate special waste in small amounts, are less common, or generated less frequently. While some of this waste may not be harmful to the health of humans, they must be collected and disposed of properly which may require customized handling, increased safety measures, or unique disposal practices. We have the dedicated staff to manage the needs of specialty waste generators.
To help clients and businesses reduce and manage their waste streams and keep their facilities and staff compliant, we also offer consulting, optimization, and audit services. Systematic evaluations involving every regulated waste stream improve facility conformance and awareness, while reducing liability and expense. Learn more about our consulting and audit services.
There are a variety of waste streams such as non-hazardous or non-regulated waste generated by businesses that are prohibited from standard disposal methods and should be carefully considered to minimize any impact to our community or the environment. Examples of this type of waste includes sugars, lactic acid, bromides, carbonates, and more. We provide comprehensive management of non-hazardous wastes, including liquids solidification, incineration, and shredding, as well as recycling services for generators of oils, grease, and anti-freezes.
At BWS we have expert knowledge and experience to help our clients classify every waste stream and identify the most economical handling, transporting, and disposal strategy for all special waste types, which may involve special OSHA, HIPAA, ADA or EPA procedures for safety and compliance purposes.
Healthcare and commercial businesses face challenges regarding compliant practices for handling and disposing of certain kinds of waste. Conducting a waste and compliance audit is a good place to start. At BWS we offer consulting services and an auditing process that provides insight into all waste streams generated by the individual client. This identifies any possibilities for waste reduction or diversion. It also assesses any deficiencies, insufficient practices, or improvements to processes that meet local, state, and federal agency regulations and will help clients remain compliant. Audits can be tailored to specific regulatory agencies (e.g. EPA) and include industrial hygiene testing as appropriate.
We are dedicated to reducing the quantity and toxicity of our clients’ waste streams to minimize the environmental impact and exposure to hazardous materials. Creating waste in healthcare and commercial business facilities is unavoidable. Our specialized, well-trusted team at BWS provides waste reduction and management services to design a program that maximizes recycling and reuse based on applicable regulations and the client or generator’s objectives.
Services can include on-site training and program implementation for staff and employees handling waste.
