Protecting Vancouver from Hazardous Waste
Protecting Vancouver’s residents and ecosystem is our number one priority at GIC.
Medical waste is a potential hazard to your staff, your patients, the general public and the environment as a whole. This is why all GIC ensures full regulatory compliance and safety in all aspects of handling medical waste – from providing puncture resistant waste containers, to training materials, to the ultimate removal and destruction of all your medical waste.
In addition to supporting Vancouver’s healthcare facilities, GIC strives to protect Canada’s natural environment with sustainable technology. With Vancouver boasting plenty of urban greenspace and having close proximity to some of British Columbia’s most important wildlife areas such as Stanley Park and Mount Seymour Provincial Park, it is essential that medical waste does not contaminate and destroy local flora and fauna. GIC Medical Disposal uses fully compliant methods to safely dispose of potentially harmful byproducts such as chemical waste that can pollute groundwater, or pharmaceuticals which can harm wildlife.
