As we kick off 2021, COVID-19 continues to affect all lives across the globe. Continuing to spread at an alarming rate, infecting more people now than we saw at the start of the crisis. This year, we hope to hit the ground running as we look ahead to the rapidly developing medical advances in vaccinations being made to help contain and fight the spread of COVID-19. Thousands of vaccines have already been administered across the United States and we are already seeing an increase in medical waste.
For years, Curtis Bay has worked with healthcare facilities to safely collect, manage, and dispose of medical waste. As millions of vaccines create used needles, syringes and vials, this waste cannot be left unattended and must be disposed of properly as medical waste, given it is not suitable for landfills. Whether you are preparing for an increase in sharps waste, require more frequent pickups, or need additional supplies, we are here to support you.
In the coming weeks millions of vaccines are due to be delivered to healthcare facilities across the nation although, in some instances, these facilities do not have a reliable method of medical waste disposal. We understand the importance of having a safe, reliable and compliant service partner during this pandemic. With our 30 years of experience, our team is ready to assist any facility in need of medical waste services with prompt setup of service, fast delivery of supplies and happy to answer any questions. We provide tailored solutions to support your vaccination rollout plans.
As there is still no reliable end in sight for COVID-19, one thing we are certain of is having an established, safe solution to disposing medical waste that does not negatively affect the environment. We can only do our best to take the necessary measures required to minimize the environmental impact. Having the right partners in place for ensuring that the virus is destroyed is the first step.
