Medical Waste Disposal for Schools in Central Florida

Keep your school medical clinic safe with proper waste disposal. Working in a school means that students’ well-being, safety and happiness need to be your number one priority. The school clinic is a place for students to find relief from sickness and injury, which means that medical waste like needles and expired pharmaceutical drugs may be present within the building. Properly disposing of medical waste is crucial to the safety of your students, faculty and staff. At Universal Waste Management, we are specially trained to efficiently dispose of medical waste in Tampa, Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Orlando and other cities in Central Florida.

Medical Waste in School Clinics

Universal Waste Management is here to help schools stay secure and sanitary. We will safely and effectively dispose of the following waste items:

  • Infectious Medical Waste
    This includes items that could be infectious to other people, specifically anything that has been in contact with blood like needles, blades, glass pipettes, gloves, gauze and other potentially harmful disposables from exam and treatment rooms.
  • Sharps Disposal
    Used needles and syringes should be promptly and safely removed from your school’s medical clinic in order to ensure the safety of students. Universal Waste Management will dispose of medical sharps with secure impenetrable sharps containers. We will provide sharps disposal services based on the type and volume of waste that your facility procures, as well as the state and local regulations.
  • Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal
    Expired, unused and partially used pharmaceuticals need to be properly identified and removed to protect your staff and prevent the possibility of prescription drug abuse. We’ll carefully separate, document, package and transport the pharmaceuticals, along with destroying any documentation related to the prescriptions. After we’ve done this, we can then determine whether or not the drugs require simple disposal or full incineration.
