Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in El Paso
Resting on the U.S.-Mexico border, straddling the Rio Grande in far West Texas, El Paso is a military town with an unforgettable Wild Wild Western flair. From the legend of Billy the Kid with his daring old El Paso jail escape, to the El Paso Mission Trail dating all the way back to 1958, this multicultural town appropriately adorned as “Sun City” finds ways to bring light to our lives daily.
One of the safest places to live in the United States, El Paso, TX is now a historically and culturally rich city filled with Western-style entertainment and vintage memorabilia. We take our boots seriously here in the boot capital of the world, and we love to shop for uniquely curated footwork with the stars at Rocketbuster Boots. These expertly crafted boots have even been worn by big name celebrities like Roy Rogers and Whoopi Goldberg! (Talk about a “boot scoot boogie!”) Our team also appreciates the beauty of The El Paso Arts District, decorated with vibrantly colorful, culturally poignant murals. Every year we attend the Chalk the Block arts festival, where we celebrate art, dance, and creativity right in the heart of El Paso for three days!
El Paso is a place to enjoy celebrating history and wonderous artwork, but also awesome health care. One shining star or El Paso healthcare is The Hospitals of Providence - for their constant medical achievement. They earned the American Heart Association’s “Get With The Guidelines” Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award on three of their campuses, as well as the Silver Plus Quality Achievement Award on their Memorial Campus in 2019.
Just as The Hospitals of Providence wishes to keep patients at their happiest and healthiest, we wish to provide the best in healthcare waste management for El Paso medical facilities.
El Paso Healthcare Waste Management with a difference.
When a healthcare facility approaches Daniels Health for a regulated medical waste collection service, we don’t have a “choose A, B or C” plan – we start with what volumes of biohazardous waste your facility generates, what additional waste streams (such as sharps, chemotherapy waste, pharmaceuticals or RCRA hazardous) are generated and the compliance training needs of your staff and then we design a service schedule that aligns with your needs, meaning you only pay for the pickups and services you need. As part of our assessment we will determine what type of sharps containers or medical disposal bins are required, and provide options based on tiered safety and volume classifications. Daniels Health is a full service waste service provider so we do not broker waste (i.e. sign a contract and then pass you onto another medical waste company), we provide all services ourselves from customer service and account management through to service, i.e. our trucks, our drivers and our treatment. Across the US, we also deliver hospital waste management services to some of the nation's leading hospitals including Stanford Health, Advent and the University of Iowa.
Some of the most common waste generated out of a non-acute healthcare facility that we would handle includes:
Plastic, paper and other materials contaminated with blood or bodily fluids
Laboratory dishes and materials used for cultures and stocks
Clinical sharps, including broken glass, ampules, needles and IV’s
Infectious waste, items that have come in contact with an infectious patient
Non-hazardous pharmaceuticals, partially used medications, and controlled substances
