Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Ownsboro


Once simply known as “The Yellow Banks” due to the golden-hued land along the Ohio River, Owensboro has transformed into Western Kentucky’s hub for medicine, culture, retail, and industry. Namesake of Colonel Abraham Owen, Owensboro offers hustle and bustle all its own and we could not be happier to call it our place of business. 


Owensboro features a plethora of sensational reasons to become entranced with its grandeur. (After all, how can we not love the city that is responsible for giving us Johnny Depp, the brilliant jack of all trades of acting!?) Our team appreciates the timeless beauty of the Historic Germantown Park. We enjoy unwinding momentarily at the gazebo after perusing the eclectic downtown shops and dining at the deliciously satisfying restaurants. We also love having the world’s largest sassafras tree in our backyard. (Now that’s something you don’t see every day!)

Healthcare is just as important to Owensboro as its attractions. We commend the talented professionals of the Owensboro Health Regional Hospital for their unwavering commitment over the years. In 2017, this hospital was labeled the best hospital in the Western Coal Fields Region, as well as the 7th best in the commonwealth, by the U.S. News and World Report. They were also ranked as “high-performing” in the heart failure, hip replacement, and knee replacement procedures.

The astounding clinicians of Owensboro have withheld their outstanding reputation and we plan to conduct business in the same admirable fashion – by providing remarkable healthcare waste management services each and every time.

Approximately 75% of healthcare waste is similar to domestic waste. These non-hazardous components are known as Healthcare General Waste (HCGW). If not properly separated, this harmless form of waste will mix with infectious waste, known as Healthcare Risk Waste (HCRW). To keep HCGW from becoming HCRW, the proper segregation of biomedical waste in hospitals is extremely important. While there are no specific environmental regulations for medical waste in the state of Kentucky, we are sure to help you closely follow the regulations set forth by the Department of Environmental Protection’s Division of Waste Management.  

You will also have access to reports detailing the amount and types of waste disposed, the number of containers serviced, and Certificates of Destruction as well. Not to mention, your facility will be equipped with the safest and most intuitive biohazard waste containers available. 



We service locally.


All healthcare facilities must not only follow federal regulations that dictate compliant healthcare waste management, but also local ones. With this in mind, we build all our Owensboro partnerships on the service of our local who are familiar with your state's unique guidelines and can help you uphold your responsibilities as a waste generator. At our clean processing plant, all your healthcare waste is treated using our robotic washline and properly documented.
