Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Duluth


Hand in hand with Superior, Wisconsin and known as ½ of the “Twin Ports,” Duluth, MN is a city of picturesque views and beautiful people. At the heart of Minnesota’s 2nd largest metropolitan area, “Zenith City” remains high on our list of wonderful places to do business.  


Duluth keeps us at bay with its laid-back feel and abundance of offerings. Our team appreciates the gorgeous vistas featured at Canal Park. Cleverly combining the hustle and bustle of downtown with the sparkling lakefront, Canal Park is a definite highlight of Duluth. Here, we can access the convention center, Park Point, and Bayfront Park all in the same location, leading us to shops, art galleries, restaurants, hotels, and cafes. We also enjoy visiting Glensheen, the historic, breathtaking Congdon Estate. Nestled on the banks of Lake Superior, stretching across seven luxurious acres, this Jacobean style mansion is littered with elegant English-styled landscapes and picture-perfect terraced gardens for our viewing pleasure.

Duluth also excels in the healthcare realm. Our team is impressed by the medical staff of Essentia Health – St. Mary’s Medical Center. This teaching hospital has been admirably ranked regionally, listed as the 4th best hospital in Minnesota and the best in Northeastern Minnesota according to the U.S. News and World Report. They have also been acknowledged as ‘high performing’ for magnificent execution of colon cancer surgery and seven other various procedures and conditions.

We know each medical team in Duluth is committed to providing first-class healthcare. Because of this, our team is sure to provide consistently spectacular healthcare waste management services.

Featured Product.



Allow us to introduce you to the Sharpsmart container family! Our reusable sharps containers come in 4 different sizes and are available with two variations of security. The standard Sharpsmart container is designed for non-secure patient areas and is fitted with a safety-tilt mechanism which restricts unauthorized access of discarded sharps. For secure non-patient areas and fast-paced settings like the OR, the Access Plus series features a full-opening lid to allow for full container access. Both versions are designed with temporary locks for safe movements and permanent safety locks when full. Learn more to determine which reusable sharps container is right for your facility.
