Medical practices work very hard to create safe and sanitary environments to protect the health of both their workers and their patients. Just as important as offering care and advice to people in need is making sure they don’t take home any unwanted ailments with them.

What if it breaks on impact with the trash receptacle at the bottom? There is safer solution. Dumbwaiters.
