Become Recycling Heroes with BWS, Inc.!

Though it may have been a while since you watched an episode of Captain Planet, the message to protect our earth through “green” practices is still very relevant today. Whether you're an employee or an owner of a company that handles various waste, every person can help do their part in reducing our ecological footprint on the environment and ensuring that our wonderful planet can live a long and happy life.

Waste Management Saves the Earth

Global Recycling Day is Right Around the Corner

March 18th is Global Recycling Day and the theme for 2020 is #RecyclingHeroes! Throughout the year, we at BWS, Inc. do our part to be your local recycling heroes. From our “Cradle to Grave” waste management cycle and sustainable operating practices, to our waste-to-renewable resource processing, everything we do cultivates environmental sustainability.

  • We shred and recycle over 50,000 lbs of paper monthly, which saves about 5,100 trees annually.
  • We process over 350,000 lbs of medical waste each month, which is 100% diverted from landfills.  Once our medical waste is processed through the autoclaves, which reduces the original volume by at least 50%, it then goes through a waste-to-energy incineration process which recycles the waste into a renewable source powering much of downtown Baltimore businesses and homes.
  • We recycle about 30,000 lbs of corrugated medical waste boxes each month, which saves 8,820 gallons of oil annually.
  • We are a virtually zero waste facility, where nothing is wasted or goes on to landfills.  All waste that we produce or collect from over 9,000 customers goes through our treatment process or recycled.
  • We recycle about 7,000 florescent lamps a week, which diverts approximately 520 pounds of mercury from being released into the environment annually.

Here's How We Help!

As a leader in medical waste management, our passion includes not only safety for people, but for the environment too. If your facility handles medical or hazardous waste of any kind, then you need a partner to ensure that waste is handled safely, disposed of properly, and with perfect compliance. This is one of the primary ways that we help our clients protect the environment. When you work with a team who upholds a perfect compliance record, you're working to keep the environment and those who live in it safe. At BWS, we are dedicated to making your company as green and safe as possible. We do this by offering comprehensive consulting that will help address your facility’s objectives to reduce waste, optimize waste handling or movement, and recycling opportunities. As a part of our consulting services, we'll take a look at not only the waste you produce but also how you produce it and how you manage it, in order for us to see if there are areas where we can help you become more efficient.

“My review from 2019: Still using BWS and still think they're great! My review from 2016: We've been doing business with BWS for a few years now, and their service and pricing are great. We previously used a company who provides the same service in our area but overcharged us for years. I would definitely recommend BWS to anyone in the market for waste disposal at a great price with excellent service.”

They were responsive and quickly start services. They were also great at answering all my questions and updating on when services would start.

Rebecca Crouse, Randolph Macon Academy

We used BWS for sharps disposal at a doctor's office. I saw their bright truck in the parking lot at work which lead me to call for a quote. They responded to my inquiry quickly and thoroughly, answering all my questions. They gave me pricing that was very reasonable, and lower than many companies I checked. They were a pleasure to communicate with via phone and email, no phone tag! The truck arrived the day and time we planned. The driver was very personable and easy to communicate with. The people I interacted with seem to understand the value of customer service. I would highly recommend them. They will take care of you.
