EPA-Compliant Medical Waste Management
URM proudly offers sustainable, eco-friendly support for the medical and healthcare industry.
In line with our commitment to minimising environmental impact, URM assists clients in creating responsible and cost-effective resource management plans.
A key driver in our company’s environmental success is rubbish segregation.
Colour coded receptacles and strategic bin placement, ensure hazardous and non-hazardous materials are kept separate, increasing resource recovery efforts.
At our facilities, we sort, sterilise and recycle in order to divert as much rubbish as possible from landfill.
All actions comply with Environment Protection Authority (EPA) guidelines and OH&S best practices.
Through waste audits and detailed records, we are able to provide informative data to clients upon request.
This allows healthcare organisations to lower their carbon footprint and meet strict government reporting requirements without disrupting daily operations.
Waste Audits & Consulting for the Healthcare Industry
Healthcare facilities are often required to submit medical waste management reports.
Regular site audits collect valuable reporting data, while identifying opportunities to reduce landfill costs and run facilities more efficiently.
Costly emergencies may also be prevented through the detection of potential OH&S risks.
Medical waste management audits consist of:
- Analysing current clinical waste stream and collection system.
- Maintaining mobile garbage bins, skips and other equipment.
- Determining type and quantity of bins and skips necessary.
- Ongoing support and training.
- Calculating collection volume and frequency.
