MedSharps Completes Environmental Facility Review Practiced by Fortune 500 Companies
On October 5th, 2022, MedSharps was formally recognized by CHWMEG for successfully completing its Facility Review Program (FRP).
CHWMEG is a trade association of manufacturing and industrial organizations, educational institutions, and government agencies that have created initiatives to reduce, recycle or reuse the waste associated with their operations. These initiatives are part of a global effort to minimize negative impacts on our environment.
MedSharps now joins Fortune 500 companies in CHWMEG’s member organization, which includes tech giants Apple, Google, and energy sector companies like Chevron, Exxon/Mobil, and General Electric.
MedSharps President Rob Marshall said, “We’re honored to be recognized along with some very distinguished companies. Receiving this award is just confirmation that we’re aligned with other forward-thinking environmentally conscious organizations.”
To gain recognition from CHWMEG, a business must pass a Facility Review Program (FRP) which looks at an organization’s methods of treatment, disposal, storage, and recycling of manufactured wastes. The Facility Review Program consisted of an inspection of the headquarter’s facility and a thorough review of MedSharps’ policies and procedures.
Marshall also commented, “It’s an exciting accomplishment for the company. It validates our practices of high standards and reinforces our commitment to our customers and the environment.”
Running a facility that exceeds industry environmental standards is just one facet of MedSharps’ overall commitment. Some other highlights to take note of are:
HIPAA, EPA, and OSHA Compliant
MedSharps’ disposal, treatment, storage, and recycling procedures are compliant with all federal, state, and local regulatory agencies. Regulations can change or be modified on short notice but MedSharps stays informed and keeps clients up to date on any modified rules. MedSharps is also fully certified by several federal agencies including the Center for Veterans Enterprise (CVE).
Insurance that Exceeds Industry Standards
While most medical waste disposal companies are insured for up to $1,000,000, MedSharps exceeds industry standard with general liability coverage of $2,000,000.
Comprehensive Removal, Treatment and Disposal
MedSharps is full service when it comes to medical waste. They provide biohazard containers to collect used single-use and reusable sharps, remove the medical waste from facilities on a scheduled basis, treat the medical waste with an autoclave or other methods and properly dispose of the waste per OSHA, EPA, and HIPPA guidelines. MedSharps can also customize services to companies that have different needs.
For at home sharps users, MedSharps offers a mailback program. Customers can purchase a sharps container and return them when full using free shipping.
Paper Destruction and E-Waste
MedSharps also offers paper shredding and e-waste destruction services. We are certified by the National Association of Information Destruction (NAID) and will provide secure on-site services for any sized job.
MedSharps offers on-demand customer service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If a customer needs help, at any time or day of the week, someone at MedSharps will be available to assist.
Family Owned and Operated
MedSharps is a family owned and operated business that values loyalty and customer relationships above profit margins.
A full range of outstanding services are presented to every prospective customer in the form of competitive pricing free of hidden fees, surcharges or long term contracts. MedSharps believes in total transparency when quoting a job as this is the best way to assure customers receive a fair price and excellent customer service.
“Getting an award for your efforts is always a good thing, and we’ll display this plaque from CHWMEG proudly,” Marshall said, “But nothing is more important or makes us more proud than helping our customers and giving them the assurance that we do things the right way.”
