Who We Are


Switch Medical Waste Services is a regional medical waste removal company located in the heart of Memphis, Tennessee. Our focus is to provide a viable alternative to skyrocketing prices and diminishing service.


What We Do


Switch Medical Waste Services provides the Memphis metro area with superior rates and service. In addition to medical waste removal, Switch Medical Waste Services offers OSHA compliance training and a variety of high-quality packaging products. 

Why Local Matters


For too long, the medical community in the Mid South has had only one option for medical waste removal.  Without competition, prices have skyrocketed and service levels have diminished.  If you are unhappy with your current service, Switch Medical Waste Services is exactly what you've been looking for.  We are fairly priced, and we offer a face to face, locally operated medical waste removal service.

Great Low Prices – Rates starting as low as $40! 

Fast and Seamless Transition – Fill out our contact form and we will be in touch with you. We want you to make the Switch! 

Flexible Service Options – We offer anywhere from weekly to monthly service. We even have on-call, as needed pickups.


Locally Owned and Operated – We care about our customers and strive to make your experience flawless. We are locally owned and operated and want you to benefit from a personal service relationship.
