Hospital Integrated Waste Stream Solutions
Our Integrated Waste Stream Solutions (IWSS) offer Sustainable SolutionsTM for managing the complexities of all your hospital wastes.
Managing Hospital Waste Is a Complex Process
Healthcare facilities, such as large hospitals and medical centers generate at least 10 different waste streams with 80% being highly regulated. These waste streams are:
- Sharps Management Waste
- Trace and Chemo Waste
- Regulated Medical Waste
- Rx Waste
- Municipal Solid Waste
- Confidential Documents
- Hazardous Waste
- Universal Waste
- Electronic Waste and Privacy-Protected Information
No single department is responsible for managing all hospital waste streams. To stay in compliance and improve environmental performance, you don’t need 10 different waste companies. All you need is one. Stericycle.
Stericycle Untangles the Complexities of Hospital Waste Compliance
Designed to take the complexity and risk out of handling multiple waste streams in hospitals and major medical facilities, the IWSS program places Stericycle staff at your facility, to audit and coordinate the proper removal and treatment of all your wastes.
Our goal is to ensure that your hospital’s integrated waste program:
- Is 100% compliant with The Joint Commission, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Department of Transportation (DOT) requirements
- Help drive efficiencies
- Achieves its sustainability or green goals and can document its successes
