Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Des Moines


Situated at the confluence of the Des Moines and Raccoon Rivers, now an integral component of the financial and insurance industries, Des Moines is the thriving capital of Iowa with an eclectic mix of modern and yesterday. Known as the “number one spot for U.S. insurance companies” and the 3rd most prominent insurance capital in the world, Des Moines is truly the “Hartford of the West.”  Des Moines 


Traces of rich history, picturesque vistas, and cultural influence are all flatteringly featured in Des Moines. Our team appreciates the luxurious Salisbury House & Gardens for its noteworthy art displays, elegant, vintage English architecture, and therapeutic botanical garden. We also enjoy heading to the Farmers’ Market in the Downtown Historic Court District for fresh fruits and vegetables, accompanied by live music, then appropriately ending the evening with a juicy prime steak at 801 Chophouse. Located in the tallest building in the city, their upscale entrees never disappoint. 

Healthcare in Des Moines holds equal importance. For their steadfastness and masterly healthcare approaches, our team congratulates the medical team of MercyOne Des Moines Medical Center. This teaching hospital has been magnificently ranked as the best hospital in Des Moines and the 2nd best hospital in Iowa according to the U.S. News and World Report. Their knowledge and expertise in the fields of Colon Cancer Surgery, Heart Failure, Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair, Aortic Valve Surgery, Heart Bypass Surgery, Knee Replacement, Hip Replacement, and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), has also admirably earned them the title of a “High Performing Hospital.”

As the clinicians of Des Moines are dedicated to caring for their patients, intently focused on their needs, our focus remains on providing top-notch, professional healthcare waste management services.
