About the Company

We ensure your regulated waste streams follow all local, state and federal guidelines regarding proper transportation and destruction.

Mission: To provide innovative environmentally safe medical waste disposal services at a low cost so our customers can dedicate resources to patient care.


We know the healthcare world because we were born from it. In 1985, the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics, UnityPoint Health-Meriter Hospital, Inc. and SSM Health Care formed a non-profit alliance to cost-effectively collect and treat their infectious and medical waste.

Over the years, we’ve expanded to other states and serve a variety of organizations, with a full range of transport and treatment services. Today we do everything from devitalizing biotech waste to disposing of dental amalgam, from recycling sustainable materials like blue wrap and medical devices to collecting infectious waste and sharps through our nationwide mailback program operated under our subsidiary, Medical Environmental Recovery Inc.

However, our mission remains the same: to provide innovative, environmentally safe medical waste disposal services at a low cost so that our customers can dedicate resources to patient care.


  • We will build a culture based on trust, open and honest communication
  • We will develop customer relationships and programs which solidify customers for the long term while creating the desire for potential customers to seek our service
  • We will develop methods and/or technologies for collecting, processing and disposing of waste through partnerships with innovative companies that support our core mission
