We’ve recently expanded our waste management contract with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Our staff now support CDC in Fort Collins, Colorado. As part of this project, our employee owners ensure hazardous waste from laboratories and florescent and halogen light bulbs is managed, stored, and disposed of properly. 

For over 13 years our personnel have supported CDC’s waste management division. This new contract expands upon existing contracts with CDC facilities in Fort Collins, Puerto Rico, and Atlanta, Georgia. Our highly experienced teams have trained laboratory staff in handling hazardous waste materials, including spill clean-up and decontamination protocols. We also train CDC staff in satellite waste accumulation and CDC’s online waste ticketing system. In addition, our staff have received high praise from the client for their organization, efficient management, and safe handling of hazardous waste.
