Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Wisconsin
Wisconsin or America’s ‘Dairyland’ takes its milk and cheese seriously, as home to more dairy cows than any other state in America. Wisconsin is an indigenous word, from the Native American Chippewa language, translating to “grassy place” in English.
An appropriate namesake, given Wisconsin is famous for its lush green pastures and undulating hills, both of which make it perfect country for grazing dairy cows. There are more than 1.3 million dairy cows in the state, spread across 9,000 farms, most of which are family owned and operated. These farms produce over 14% of America’s milk, and 25% of the country’s cheese. However, dairy farming isn’t all Wisconsin is known for. It’s also referred to as the Badger State, this nickname was inspired by miners in the 1800s that dug tunnels into the hills or lived underground (just like badgers) in the mines during the winter months to stay warm.
Although Wisconsin is a mass producer of one of the most commonly recognized medicinal plants in the world, ginseng, it also has a thriving medical community and exceptional healthcare facilities. In fact, Wisconsin has some of the best hospitals in the country. The renowned University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison, is a popular teaching hospital, and has been ranked nationally in 9 adult specialties and 6 pediatric specialties by U.S News. Like every US state, Wisconsin produces biohazardous and medical waste, with the disposal of this waste managed by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The department has outlined complex regulations that dictate that containers for these kinds of waste streams must be removed and emptied at least every 90 days, and that biohazardous and medical waste generators must keep records of their original waste manifest and treatment certification for up to 5 years.
Complying with such stringent regulations can be difficult for healthcare facilities and that’s where we come in. Daniels is a safe and reliable cradle to grave waste management solutions provider, serving Wisconsin and America.
