Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Atlanta


Atlanta is known as “The City in the Forest” because even as the largest city in Georgia, it is nestled amidst lush trees. Although the summer heat can be brutal, Hotlanta is worth every minute to enjoy the people, the food, and the history. 


When you think of a hot southern summer day, it’s easy to start thirsting for an ice-cold Coca-Cola (in a glass bottle of course). We have Atlanta to thank for this internationally loved soda. Dr. John S. Pemberton created the coveted secret recipe that now still is a sweet treat for many. Speaking of sweet treats, did you know at one point it was illegal to put an ice cream cone in your back pocket in the city of Atlanta? Not sure why you would want to, but an easy enough law to comply with.

The city has grown to become a hub for theatre, film, and music. Artists move here regularly to get their start and feel the city's influence. Dubbed the, “Hollywood of the south,” Atlanta and surrounding Georgian cities provide some of the background for our favorite movies – like Avengers! The allure of the city also brings in top-rated chefs from all over the world. Atlanta now proudly has some of the most elevated and praised cuisine in America.

Beyond our love of movies and Marvel, we are passionate about healthcare, and this is where our story begins.


Atlanta Healthcare Waste Management with ecology.


The negative impact of single-use plastics on our planet is something humanity is now, and must continue to be, conscious of. Unfortunately, the US healthcare waste sector has been saturated with disposable plastic containers as the default option for medical waste for many years.

Our reusable containers have grown to be renowned worldwide as the safest and most sustainable option for healthcare waste with inbuilt leakproof seals, impenetrable plastic, and a variety of safety features designed from clinician feedback.
