Miami Beach – Medical Waste Disposal and Document Shredding

HES is proud to provide Miami Beach with safe, 100% compliant medical waste disposal and document shredding services.
All plans include custom scheduling, exemplary customer service, and supplementary support to facilitate easier day-to-day operations.

Medical Waste Disposal in Miami Beach

Pharmacies, laboratories, hospitals, nursing homes, and tattoo parlors make up only a few of Florida’s more than 42,000 facilities producing medical waste. Unlike regular waste, biomedical trash presents the risk of infection, requiring specialized disposal protocols to preserve public health and protect the welfare of the environment.

Special legislation, such as Section 381.0098 of the 2019 Florida Statutes, outlines the specific parameters for the safe removal and processing of biomedical waste. However, not all facilities and small businesses have the equipment or expertise necessary to fulfill these parameters on an in-house basis.

HES’s waste disposal solutions are fully licensed, insured, regulated, and in complete compliance with the legislative standards established by the state of Florida. Plans are customized to suit the unique requirements of each client and may be carried out on a regularly scheduled basis or requested on-demand.

Florida Legislative Compliance

Each stage of our waste disposal service has been developed based on and in full compliance with federal and state legislation regarding the safe handling and disposal of biomedical trash. Our registered transporter vehicles collect the waste from clients in Miami Beach and securely transport them back to our facility for proper processing and destruction. You’ll receive a receipt for every pickup, detailing the date and transfer of materials, for your records.

Document Shredding in Miami Beach

Miami Beach is world-famous for being a place to relax, but some issues, like identity theft and privacy protection, deserve full-time attention. Innocuous information like a name, birthdate, or signature can be enough to cause months of wasted time and a few thousand dollars’ worth of damage. For companies and businesses, the risk can be even greater, due to the legal obligations they must follow to protect the personal data of their clients.

HES supplies businesses and residents of Miami Beach with streamlined, industry-grade shredding programs. A secure chain of custody is maintained during every stage, guaranteeing that your information will never be exposed or compromised. Our top-of-the-line automated shredding machines cross-cut papers into tiny particles in accordance with current privacy mandates and are then securely delivered to and recycled by one of our trusted local partners.

Mobile Shredding

With our mobile shredding program, one of our shredding trucks will arrive on-site at your business or residence in Miami Beach. A uniformed technician will safely load your documents into the truck, where they will be directly deposited into the internal shredding machine.

Clients are invited to watch the process as it occurs to personally verify that their documents have been destroyed. Before departure, the technician will provide you with a Certificate of Destruction, verifying the disposal of your documents according to all required legal parameters.

We will then securely transport the remaining paper particles to a facility for recycling.

Scheduled Shredding

Every year, the average office worker goes through about 10,000 sheets of paper. When businesses deal with the account details and personal information of their clients, the papers containing that information shouldn’t be disposed through public trash collection.

HES provides scheduled shredding services to Miami Beach businesses to securely and permanently destroy this information. Shredding can be arranged as frequently or infrequently as you like, and we’ll provide free, locking consoles for daily use in your workplace. 

These can be used to store sensitive documents, and on shredding day, a uniformed technician will empty the consoles and securely shred the papers on-site, with no interruption to your workday. You’ll receive a Certificate of Destruction once shredding is complete, and as with our mobile program, all remaining particles will be safely recycled.

Hard Drive Shredding

The average cost of a data breach is $3.92 million, and it only takes one misplaced hard drive for that to happen. A cursory file overwrite or deletion isn’t enough to remove the data on the drive platter, which is why HES offers a hard drive shredding service.

Our hard drive shredding process works by physically destroying the drive platter and rendering any remaining data inaccessible and unrecoverable. We’ll provide you with a Certificate of Destruction, including the serial number of every hard drive that was destroyed, and will remove the remaining electronic components for recycling.

Locally Owned, Nationally Covered

Owned and operated out of Miami, HES is only a call away. Our thorough industry experience, unparalleled customer service, and expert advice are paired with reliable, affordable, and comprehensive disposal plans. We’re fully licensed, insured, and compliant with all state and federal legislation, including HIPAA.
