Medical Waste Disposal in the City of Miami

According to the World Health Organization, improper disposal of medical waste can contribute to contaminated drinking water, an increase of chemicals into the ground, and a higher concentration of air pollutants. However, the requirements and standards for medical waste depend on your specific industry and a variety of local and federal laws, which can be confusing to understand and harder to enact.

HES is proud to offer disposal solutions that precisely meet the standards required for safe and responsible disposal of medical and biohazardous waste. We offer same-day removal services and scheduled collection services for our clients who regularly generate medical waste.

Florida's Disposal Legislation

Biomedical waste is defined by the Florida Department of Health as any solid or liquid waste which might present the threat of infection to humans. This can include veterinary and laboratory waste, as well as any materials or devices that have been contaminated by blood or bodily fluids. The rules for the disposal of this sort of waste are understandably strict, outlined by regulations like HIPAA, which is why we guarantee our customers full compliance with Florida’s regulations.

Our registered transporter vehicles will provide you with a receipt immediately upon collection, and at our facility, the waste will be thoroughly treated and safely destroyed.

We Safely Dispose of the Following Biomedical Waste:

  • Industrial Waste
  • Pharmaceutical Waste
  • Biohazardous Waste
  • Medical Waste
  • Controlled Substances

Document Destruction in the City of Miami

In 2017, there were 31,167 cases of identity theft in Florida. Our state also suffered from 523 data breaches in the last ten years, putting thousands of people at risk for credit fraud, identity theft, and social security theft. Business is increasingly conducted online, but the average office worker still generates about 2 pounds of paper and paperboard products each day.

It only takes one misplaced document to create the opportunity for theft or misuse. HES’s Miami shredding programs guarantee that every piece of paper processed will be safely and securely crosscut into an irretrievable format. We make sure that every ounce of shredded paper is responsibly recycled by one of our trusted local partners. After shredding, you’ll receive a Certificate of Destruction, precisely detailing the process through which your documents were destroyed.

Mobile Shredding

Our on-site, mobile shredding program brings our services right to the front door of your Miami business or home. A uniformed technician will transfer your documents into a locked container, which will then be directly and securely attached to our state-of-the-art, automated shredding trucks.

Your documents will be lifted into the truck, and you will be able to observe in real time as your files are crosscut according to industry standards. When the process is complete, we’ll safely transport the paper particles to a recycling plant.

Scheduled Shredding

If your company regularly deals with documents containing personal information or sensitive account details, HES’s scheduled shredding service will help streamline your workday and introduce a new level of security to your paper processing. We’ll provide you with free, locking consoles, which can be placed around your office and used to store documents securely until shredding day.

When that day arrives, we’ll collect and empty the consoles directly into our shredding truck, return the consoles for your continued use, and provide you with a Certificate of Destruction before we depart.
