Our Customized Approach To Service Is Based On Persistent Demands By Hospital And Medical Personnel
In the past, medical professionals and hospital administrators were very frustrated with unreasonable costs and lack of service.
Hospital waste management services were typically provided by large, impersonal companies. You could never find the right person to talk to when you have a problem. Communicating the problem is another challenge. The person you were speaking with may not know who you are or the needs of your facility. On top of that, costs can quickly get out of control, with little or no recourse.
Doctors, nurses and lab personnel described many situations where poor service, out-dated equipment and lack of coordination with the waste disposal company created dangerous situations. When they tried to resolve the problem, inflexible responses by waste disposal companies allowed the situation to continue for extended periods of time. They didn’t have someone they could communicate with that would be able to resolve troublesome inefficiencies.
Everyone understood that managing hazardous waste and biomedical waste is a serious responsibility. Even the waste management services companies would agree with that. However, the system had grown into such a bureaucratic jungle that it was very difficult to find a responsive waste management company at a reasonable cost.
The other thing that was bothering people in the medical industry was the practice of inflexible, long-term contracts. Packages were created based on certain models that didn’t always fit the organization. But since there was no other way, they went along with the system.
Inflexible service standards and unending empty promises had left a bad taste in their mouths.
Unfortunately, the situation has not changed much. Hospitals are still looking for flexibility in pricing and needs-based service offerings. The need for a more customer-oriented hazardous waste company continues.
After hearing these types of persistent complaints over the years, the founder of our company decided to offer a more user friendly hospital waste management solution.

Next, we will work with your administration and staff to update their training and procedures so everything goes smoothly. We will provide as much support as you need to keep you in compliance with the latest changes in the current laws as well as those we see coming up.
