of Florida Department of Health to transports regulated medical waste
from generating facilities to permitted disposal sites
Q: I require monthly pick up. Do you pick up on the same day monthly?
A: The regulations in Florida require that bio-medical waste be removed
from the generating facility within 30 days of the date the first article
of such waste is placed in the container (excluding sharps). For
facilities that require a monthly pick up, we schedule your facility on a
28 day cycle. This facilitates our routes to provide your pick up on the
same day every 4 weeks, equating to 13 pick ups per year. This
assuresyou are in complience with the regulations of the Florida DOH.

several brands and all types and sizes. We will be glad to quote your

option of providing your own from any source you choose.
