Our well recognized line of solutions are seen as a value-added offering by our customers, including government agencies, major retail pharmacy chains, professional offices, clinics, home healthcare patients and other generators of medical waste outside of the hospital and large healthcare setting. Additionally, we believe we are leading the country in the education of medical waste generators, many which operate in a regulated setting, about our cost effective waste management solutions that we believe reduces cost by approximately 50% compared with a traditional pick-up service."
