EcoMed offers a variety of compliance services including turnkey onsite solutions, mailback programs, and integrated offsite medical waste disposal and recycling. Our procedures, framework, and practices regarding the safe management and disposal of Regulated Medical Waste (RMW) are in accordance with local, state/provincial, and federal regulations including DOT and OSHA guidelines and standards.
Healthcare providers, waste generators, and waste management companies are required to properly handle, treat, and dispose of the generated biomedical waste without endangering the public health and the environment. To ensure public safety and environmental protection, federal, state, and local laws require Regulated Medical Waste to be treated and rendered non-infectious before it can be disposed of as a solid municipal waste. It is unlawful to reduce, reuse, or recycle any infectious waste prior proper treatment and disposal. EcoMed's solutions and services are in compliance with all regulatory laws.
