We Care About Your Safety and the Safety of the Environment
As part of our business philosophy and operations, AMS continuously pursues opportunities to develop recycling programs for all waste streams. Similar to our Store and Shred division where film, paper and electronic media are all recycled, AMS offers options to avoid landfills for our medical waste.
AMS’s process for recycling medical waste emphasizes sustainability as sanitized medical waste is converted into a fuel source to reduce our environmental footprint.
Healthcare waste is fully sterilized through enclosed ozone treatment system
This process effectively kills all pathogens including bacteria, fungi and viruses
Ozone Treatment has been used to disinfect drinking water for many years
Agency inspections done quarterly
Regulatory Agencies have
approved processes for the following waste streams:
RCRA Part B Hazardous Waste
Infectious Waste Treatment
Cost-effective alternative to incineration or landfill
Waste is converted into a high energy liquid fuel to replace coal in cement kilns
Medical waste is completely consumed, burns cleaner than coal and reduces greenhouse gas emissions which improves the environment
Helping to Build a Better Tomorrow
At AMS we have incorporated processes that both securely destroy confidential information and help preserve our natural resources. The medical waste is converted to fuel, shredded paper is sent to a paper mill, shredded film is refined and E-waste is recycled. These materials are then used for an innumerable list of recycled products and energy generation.
