Citiwaste provides streamlined medical waste disposal solutions in all boroughs of New York City including Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. As an environmentally focused company, we offer effective strategies to help reduce waste streams generated by the health and pharmaceutical industries, which produce some 20 tons of medical waste in New York every month.
Much of this infectious, biohazardous and pathological waste is generated in NYC metro-area hospitals, private physician offices, medical labs, dental practices, dialysis centers, and other similar facilities throughout New York City.
Our portfolio of services includes regulated medical waste (RMW) disposal, sharps disposal, pharmaceutical waste management, and customized waste stream management plans for hospitals, surgery centers, labs, dental offices, doctor offices, nursing homes and other businesses headquartered in New York City and its five boroughs. From our Brooklyn office, we deliver timely, low-cost and reliable services that aim to improve public safety, ensure regulatory compliance, and reduce environmental risks.
There are an estimated 36,000 generators of regulated medical waste in New York State, each of which must submit to the governing authority and jurisdiction of the New York State Department of Health (DOH) and the Department of Environmental Conservation.
The storage, treatment, removal and disposal of medical waste are highly regulated in New York City, which follows mandates outlined in both state Public Health Law and city Administrative codes. According to these regulations, dialysis or biological waste, human cultures, scalpels, blades, needles and lancets, and other waste that may have come in contact with infectious agents or considered biohazardous must be properly treated and disposed of. Hospitals, laboratories, surgery centers and other institutions that do not comply with New York guidelines in regards to RMW disposal face steep penalties of up to $50,000 a day and a civil fine of up to $10,000.
Since our founding in 1996, Citiwaste has established a strong presence in New York, Bronx, Queens, Richmond and Kings Counties, thanks to our strong commitment to cost-effective RMW management solutions. Superior customer service is the cornerstone of our company, which features non-restrictive contracts as well as on-call waste disposal pick-ups for facilities of all sizes.
