Biomedical Waste Services, Inc. (BWS) Attends the 2021 WasteExpo & Waste360 Healthcare Waste Conference

Biomedical Waste Services, Inc. (BWS) Attends the 2021 WasteExpo & Waste360 Healthcare Waste Conference

In late-June, the Biomedical Waste Services, Inc. (BWS) team attended the 2021 WasteExpo (an event by Waste360) in Las Vegas, NV. The WasteExpo sponsored in part by the National Waste and Recycling Association, was originally scheduled for 2020 with several postponements amid the Covid-19 pandemic crisis. Like many conventions and trade shows originally scheduled for 2020, the WasteExpo offered a virtual experience in late 2020 but was eager to return to its traditional in-person event in a safe and organized way.

Kicking Off the Waste and Recycling Conference

The week kicked off with a day full of educational sessions for attendees and organizational leaders addressing waste and recycling topics such as legislation updates, technology efficiencies, anaerobic digestion, Covid-19 safety management, and much more. Each session was moderated with guest speakers or panels from businesses and sectors across all industries, local and national, that gave educational conference-goers a dynamic look at matters that may be impacting their operations. Discussions were interactive and insightful creating a collaborative environment.

Day two began with the WasteExpo exhibitor hall located at the Las Vegas convention center opening to attendees and decision makers motivated to connect with waste and recycling manufacturers, distributors, consultants, and more, face-to-face and all under one roof. There were over 300 exhibitors, ranging from truck and equipment sales, to software, robotics, and products, each with their own value appealing to attendees' individual operating and sustainability goals.

Over the course of day two and three, the Waste360 Healthcare Waste Conference, which is the only annual conference in the U.S. devoted to healthcare waste focusing on regulatory, legislative, and technical matters effecting the healthcare waste industry, hosted it's own educational conferences with special guests and speakers for WasteExpo attendees and Healthcare Waste Institute members. The conference included a separate exhibitor hall designated for healthcare waste industry service providers, equipment manufacturers, supply distributors, and software developers where attendees and vendor could make new connections and the opportunity to network.

Healthcare Waste Institute members and vendors were noticeably grateful and enthusiastic to be together again. As Krell described, "It's like a family reunion for our HWI members! We are a close group, operating all over the country, all with the same mindset of advancing the healthcare waste industry through technology and regulations that benefit our customers and our communities". The Healthcare Waste Conference educational sessions allowed members, speakers, and attendees to walk away with knowledge and new perspectives, the ability to solve challenges, and discover better solutions for healthcare waste management.

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.

I ran a dental charity for many years, organizing huge clinics to treat those in need. BWS donated their waste disposal services for every clinic for many years, and they continue to do so to this day.
