Medical Waste Disposal for Asheville, NC

The crowning jewel of the Piedmont Region, Asheville, North Carolina is a spectacular blend of unique arts, preserved history, and stunning geography.

Asheville NCAs the largest city in Western North Carolina, Ashville is the principal city in the four-county Asheville metropolitan area and the county seat of Buncombe county.  

MWA is the leading provider of medical waste disposal services in the Asheville, North Carolina area. 

In Asheville, healthcare is anchored by Mission Health System, the city’s biggest employer. With the largest industries in Asheville being Health Care and Social Assistance, there’s no doubt that there is a steady amount of medical waste produced by such facilities.

In the medical community, it takes a team of professionals to produce top-quality health care. An essential aspect of the process is the proper disposal of biomedical waste produced by hospitals, laboratories, doctor’s offices, or other facilities. MWA partners with health care providers to ensure safety for patients and the community every step of the way.

MWA works behind the scenes to keep safety a priority when disposing of contaminated objects that have come into contact with bodily fluid, such as needles, gloves, or bandages among other things. This biomedical waste can be defined as a type of solid or liquid biowaste that has been contaminated by a biohazardous agent that is infectious or potentially infectious. When it comes to appropriate disposal of biomedical waste, it can be confusing and time consuming to follow every regulation given by national and state administrations. 

When choosing MWA, you can be assured that every guideline is being followed by knowledgeable professionals. When dealing with large quantities of biomedical waste, most facilities prefer to use an off-site licensed treatment facility. After treatment, it is taken to a medically approved landfill. Medical waste of this sort can be generated from healthcare and medical facilities such as hospitals, physician’s offices, urgent care facilities, dental offices, retail health practices, home healthcare agencies, nursing homes, laboratories, medical research facilities, mortuary and autopsy centers, funeral homes, veterinary clinics, blood banks, blood collection services, and other health facilities.

When removing, transporting, and disposing of biomedical waste, safety and efficiency are key. MWA offers quality services to health care professionals in the Asheville area.
