Medical Waste Disposal in Boca Raton

In 2018, Florida had 42,000 facilities producing biomedical waste, an increase of around 1,000 facilities every year since 2014. Pharmacies, nursing homes, laboratories, hospitals, tattoo parlors, and funeral homes all generate forms of biomedical waste, which carries the risk of infection and therefore requires specialized disposal to protect public health and reduce the impact on the environment.

The state of Florida has designated special procedural rules, such as those outlined in Section 381.0098 of the 2019 Florida Statutes, for the safe removal and treatment of this waste. However, these rules can be challenging to meet, especially if a facility is small or lacks the necessary equipment to fulfill these obligations in-house.

Waste Collection Supplies

In addition to our waste disposal services, we also offer our Boca Raton customers a variety of supplies for medical and pharmaceutical waste collection. From sharps containers to red bag liners and gloves, we stock everything necessary for the successful implementation of a safe waste disposal program.

Each plan is customized to suit the unique requirements of every client and functions in full compliance with Florida’s legislative standards.

Compliance with Florida Legislation

Every element of HES’s services has been created with close attention to state and federal legislation regarding the handling and disposal of biomedical waste. Our Boca Raton pickups are completed by registered transporter vehicles, and every appointment concludes with the issue of a receipt, detailing the appropriate processing and date of transfer of the waste to our secured facility for destruction.

In 2019, fraud cost Floridian victims an average of $400 per person. It doesn’t take much information to encourage identity theft – a name, birthdate, and address can be enough to cause serious damage. For businesses, the risk expands well beyond the headache of fighting an unauthorized credit card charge. A single misplaced paper is enough to jeopardize a client’s account and the company’s reputation.

HES provides residents and businesses of Boca Raton with industry-grade, comprehensive shredding services. Every document processed is confidentially transferred, crosscut in accordance with the latest privacy legislation, and sent for immediate recycling to a trusted local partner. At every stage, we maintain a secure chain of custody to protect your documents and information.

Mobile Shredding

Our on-site shredding services are perfect for Boca Raton businesses and residences alike. Your documents will be collected and shredded on location by one of our uniformed technicians. We invite our clients to watch as our state-of-the-art shredding trucks automatically lift, deposit, and securely process their papers through the internal shredder according to industrial standards for privacy protection. Before departing, the technician will issue a Certificate of Destruction, documenting the successful destruction of your information. All shredded particles will then be safely transported to a local partner for recycling.

Scheduled Shredding

Digital work accounts for a good portion of how most modern offices function, but the average office worker still goes through about 10,000 pages of paper every year. If these papers contain personal or account information for clients, then they can’t be regularly disposed. HES provides regularly scheduled shredding to businesses in Boca Raton to help correctly and confidentially destroy this information.

Scheduled shredding clients are first provided with free, locking consoles for daily use in the office. Instead of going into the trash, sensitive documents can be safely stored in the consoles. On the scheduled shredding day, our uniformed technician will arrive, securely empty the contents of the consoles, shred the contents on-site, and return the consoles to your office for continued use. As with our mobile shredding program, you’ll receive a Certificate of Destruction after every shredding appointment, and we’ll see to it that the shredded particles are safely recycled.

Hard Drive Shredding

The data stored on a hard drive can still be recovered after the drive has been erased or overwritten. When removing computers or external hard drives from office use, they must be physically crushed to guarantee that their data is destroyed permanently. HES’s shredding method destroys the drive platter, making any remaining magnetic data impossible to recover. The serial numbers of each hard drive will be recorded on your Certificate of Destruction for verification purposes, and all leftover electrical components will be removed and recycled.
