Reducing Costs through Effective Waste Segregation

On average, nursing homes and patient-care facilities produce less than 10% of medical waste as a proportion of their total volume of waste generated; however due to poor waste segregation and lack of staff training protocols, many facilities are categorizing between 15% – 25% of their overall waste volumes as medical waste. This overcategorization has a significant impact on costs with medical waste treated at a much higher cost than general trash. Through education and clearly labelled medical waste bins, we help long term care facilities improve their waste segregation practices and drive changes that will decrease medical waste volumes, lower costs, and reduce environmental impact.

Managing Hazardous Pharmaceuticals

We help you navigate your facilities’ adherence to the EPA’s Subpart P Regulations

In 2020, the EPA introduced a final rule on hazardous pharmaceutical waste management that has a direct impact on long term care facilities and hospices. Facilities generating less than 1kg of acute hazardous waste (as defined on the EPA’s P-List) have the option to weigh their hazardous pharmaceutical waste volume to meet the criteria of an SQG; however if long term care providers choose not to weigh and document, they must register with the EPA under subpart P of RCRA to keep pharmaceuticals onsite. At MCF, we help you navigate the accumulation status of your facility, how to manage your hazardous pharmaceuticals, and how to educate your staff on correct waste attribution to be in compliance and minimize your pharmaceutical disposal costs.
