MERI Is Now Part of the LRI Family
MERI (Madison Environmental Resourcing, Inc.)
No monthly fees, with a responsive staff that is flexible to your needs, makes MERI your single-source solution.
Economical. No monthly fees. Local pickup customers only pay when we collect waste for disposal. Alternatively, our nationwide mailback kits offer an affordable disposal alternative for small-quantity waste generators who don’t want to be stuck in a contract.
Responsive. Our dedicated staff is available to help you determine the best fit for your medical waste disposal needs. We will take the time to walk you through different options while ensuring compliance and offering a cost-saving alternative.
Flexible. Various disposable options are available with nationwide mailback kits or local pickup (WI, Eastern IA, and Northern IL) on a scheduled or on-call basis. We collect multiple waste streams (hazardous, infectious, universal) in one pickup.
How We Started
MERI (Madison Environmental Resourcing, Inc.) started in 1985 as a partnership of three Madison, WI hospitals. These three large hospitals formed a non-profit alliance to collect and treat their infectious and medical waste cost-effectively.
Where We Are
Over the past 30-plus years, we have continued to serve these 3 area hospitals, now known as UW Health University Hospital, UnityPoint Health Meriter Hospital, and SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital. Furthermore, we’ve expanded to other states and service a variety of organizations with our innovative, environmentally safe, and cost-effective transport and treatment services.
