Our Commitment to Sustainability & Environmental Responsibility

While essential, the healthcare industry contributes significantly to environmental challenges. Within the numerous categories that the EPA considers medical waste, a single hospital bed generates approximately 33 pounds of medical waste every day. This results in an estimated 6 million tons of medical waste in the U.S. annually. Opting for launderable choices over disposables saves substantial time and cost in purchasing replacements and aligns with eco-conscious practices.

When you work with MedClean, you choose a champion in resource conservation as a partner to help you manage your clinic’s laundry needs. We offer healthcare facilities solutions that are both hygienically clean and environmentally conscious. Our solutions promote a healthier planet while you provide exceptional patient care. We’re dedicated to continuously exploring new and innovative practices and technologies to minimize our ecological footprint further, leading the way toward a more sustainable future.

MedClean proudly holds TRSA’s Clean Green certification, demonstrating our commitment to improving water and energy efficiency by adopting best management practices for reusing, reclaiming, and recycling resources.
