Knoxville Skyline serving medical waste generators“One of the most beneficial things about Knoxville is that the area offers all the amenities of life in a big town, but a resident is never too far away from peace and quiet, be it a farm or the rolling foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains,” read the report.

MWA is Knoxville’s leading provider of medical waste disposal services

Knoxville has an extensive healthcare and medical system, including these large and respected hospitals:

  • University of Tennessee Medical Center
  • Parkwest Medical Center
  • Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center
  • Blount Memorial Hospital
  • East Tennessee Children’s Hospital
  • Fort Loudoun Medical Center

With these and so many other healthcare facilities, clinics, senior-care facilities, medical practices and labs in the area, a massive amount of medical waste is continually being created in the Knoxville area. MWA partners with many Knoxville-area 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 items that have come into contact with bodily fluid, such as needles, gloves, bandages, and more. This biomedical waste is defined by regulatory agencies as a type of solid or liquid biowaste that has been contaminated by an infectious or potentially infectious biohazardous agent. When it comes to appropriate disposal of biomedical waste, attempting to comply with every regulation given by national and state agencies quickly becomes a confusing and time-consuming task.

Your Local Knoxville Biohazardous Waste Company

When choosing MWA, you can be assured that every guideline is being followed by our knowledgeable professionals. When dealing with large quantities of biomedical waste, most facilities prefer to use an off-site, licensed treatment facility where after treatment, the material is taken to an approved landfill.

Medical waste of this sort is not only generated from healthcare and medical facilities such as hospitals, physician’s offices, urgent care facilities, and retail health practices. Dental offices, home healthcare agencies, nursing homes, laboratories, medical research facilities, medical examiners’ offices, mortuaries, funeral homes, veterinary clinics, blood banks, blood collection services, and other health facilities are also medical waste generators.

When removing, transporting, and disposing of biomedical waste, safety and efficiency are key. MWA offers quality services to all types of organizations and businesses that generate medical waste in the Knoxville area.
