Why We Exist
Why does MERI exist? We know the healthcare world because we were born from it.
In 1985, the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics, Meriter Hospital, Inc. and SSM Health Care formed a non-profit partnership to cost-effectively collect and treat their infectious and medical waste.
Over the years, we’ve expanded to other states and serve a variety of organizations, with a full range of transport and treatment services. Today we do everything from devitalizing biotech waste to recycling sustainable materials like blue wrap to collecting infectious waste and sharps through our nationwide mailback program operated under our subsidiary, Medical Environmental Recovery Inc.
However, our mission remains the same: to provide innovative, environmentally safe medical waste disposal services at a low cost so that our customers can dedicate resources to patient care.
