Whether you’re a physician, a veterinarian or an assisted living center, it’s vital to avoid getting locked into a vicious cycle of overpaying for the removal of medical waste, bio materials and expired medications. Sadly, some have found clever ways to jack up invoices, tack on strange fees, and send you running in circles; only before justifying it with very fine print. Making matters worse, contracts and exhausting cancelation procedures can make the process of switching services even more stressful.

If you’re in the process of looking for your first medical waste disposal service or in need of a change from your current provider, here are a few things to keep in mind that can help save you time, money and frustration.

Local Service With Low Overhead

We cannot overstate the importance of working with someone at the most local scale possible. The removal of medical and biological waste is a complex one.  When issues arise, you need the assurance that someone understands what you’re going through, knows the area, and has access to all available resources.  Choosing a smaller, more independent medical disposal service with reduced overhead is a smart way to keep your costs more affordable.

Wasted Time is Wasted Money

One of the most frequently voiced concerns among medical waste removal customers, is the amount of time that’s exhausted dealing with multiple departments, phone trees, high turnover and other administrative nightmares.  The best way to avoid this is to make sure that you’re not becoming just another account number.  Call around and get a feel for who you’ll be working with, ask them real questions, and then see how many call transfers it takes to get an answer.

Avoiding Upcharges and Surprise Fees

Unexpected fees and surprise surcharges have become a real problem for those who rely on regular removal of medical waste, making it one of the most important pitfalls to avoid.  Obviously, it’s crucial to get everything in writing.  But also make sure you understand exactly what you’re signing up for, and read the reviews of others who’ve already dealt with them.  It’s a sound way to accurately gauge what might await you in the future.
