NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. and MILWAUKEE, Nov. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, OnSite Waste Technologies, Inc., the innovator in immediate sterilization of medical waste, announced that Direct Supply, which delivers solution-driven platforms designed to enhance the lives of millions of seniors, is now offering the OnSite TE-5000 to its customers – a 21st century medical waste disposal solution that is cost effective, safe and onsite.
"Direct Supply is constantly evaluating new technology and services designed to cut costs, increase revenue and improve outcomes for our customers. Medical waste disposal is an area primed for cost savings and increased efficiencies," said Todd Sobotka, Director of Innovation at Direct Supply. "OnSite provides a logical alternative to the status quo by enabling immediate sterilization of potentially infectious material, helping to reduce foot traffic and costly pick-ups. OnSite also develops flexible plans for each facility that provide standard, centralized financial and regulatory administration. Making the move to OnSite is a natural solution."
For nearly 50 years, medical offices and senior care facilities have stored medical waste onsite before having it hauled away by outside vendors to the tune of nearly $4 Billion annually1. The OnSite TE-5000 provides immediate sterilization so medical offices and nursing homes can safely dispose of medical waste overnight without the high costs that stem from traditional hauling methods.
"Direct Supply helps Guardian Healthcare achieve our operational and fiscal goals by connecting us with the best service providers for our various needs," said Jarrod Degenhard, VP of Environmental Services at Guardian Healthcare. "OnSite Waste Technologies has shown to be a great partner, enabling us to enhance our infectious control procedures with an innovative solution that drives down cost and environmental impact."
For small waste producers, OnSite's TE-5000 is the most complete waste-disposal solution available today2. The unit fits on a desk and heats "sharps" and "Red-Bag Waste" between 350-400 degrees for 90 minutes. This ensures all bacteria, spores and viruses – such as COVID-19 – are completely destroyed. All plastic components of the of the medical waste are melted down, reducing the contents by 80% to a disposable "brick." Traditionally these materials have been stored and then trucked to one of 72 incinerators across the country.
"With a shared commitment of driving high-costs out of the waste industry, we're thrilled to have teamed up with Direct Supply," said Brad Barnes, CEO at OnSite Waste Technologies. "Together, we're making an immediate impact by delivering total waste solutions – highlighted by the OnSite TE-5000 – to senior care and medical facilities, such as Guardian Healthcare, helping them save money and find practical operating efficiencies."
