The term medical waste disposal refers broadly to the management of wastes generated by medical facilities, such as hospitals and clinics. Medical waste is any type of waste contaminated by blood, body fluids or other potentially infectious materials.

There are three basic types of medical waste disposal companies we will go over each one below.
A hauler is a medical waste company that hauls medical waste from your facility to another facility that destroys the waste. A lot of companies in the medical waste industry are haulers. They do not treat the waste or sometimes even store the waste. They simply pick it up from you and take it to another company to destroy. The process gets done but you still have two companies, making money from your one bill. The hauler and the processing plant.
To determine if you are speaking with a medical waste hauler, ask them this question. Does your company own the facility that treats the medical waste, or do you take it to another company for treatment?
They have little control over the individual drivers that walk in your office, the training the drivers take, background checks of those drivers or the safety of the trucks and equipment that haul your waste. The way they make their money is by charging you more than a local hauler will charge them.
When you do not control the routes or drivers you can see where customer service could become an issue working with a broker.
Another obvious is, now you have two companies making profits from your one bill. Why not just work with the one company that actually services your account?
Ask these two questions to see if you are speaking with a broker. Do you directly employ the drivers on a W2 that walk into my office? Is it your company name that will be on the trucks, drivers’ shirts, hats, etc. that will haul my waste?
In most cases when working with a broker, the broker company you sign the contract with, will not service your account, it will be another medical waste company.
