Highlight of Business Operations:

The Company is a leading full-service provider of cost-effective solutions for management of medical waste and unused dispensed medications generated outside of the hospital and large health care facility setting, serving more than 4,000 customers in all 50 states. Our solutions facilitate the proper treatment of numerous types of medical waste and unused dispensed medications, including hypodermic needles, lancets and other devices or objects used to puncture or lacerate the skin, or sharps, and unused dispensed prescription and over-the-counter drugs and medications. We serve customers in multiple markets such as government (federal, state and local), home health care, retail clinics and immunizing pharmacies, pharmaceutical manufacturers, professional offices (physicians, dentists and veterinarians), hospitality (including assisted living facilities, hotels, motels and restaurants), consumers, commercial, industrial and agriculture, and distributors to many of the aforementioned markets. We assist our customers in determining which of our distinct solution offerings best fit their needs for the collection, storage, return transportation and treatment of their or their patients medical waste and unused dispensed medications. Our differentiated approach provides our customers the flexibility to return and ultimately properly treat their or their patients medical waste or unused dispensed medications through pre-paid mail services primarily through the United States Postal Service (“USPS”).We believe our easy-to-use and convenient solutions are on average up to 50% less than traditional pick-up services for treatment of medical waste outside of the hospital or large health care facility setting. Furthermore, we provide comprehensive tracking and reporting tools that enable our customers to meet complex medical waste disposal and unused dispensed patient medication compliance requirements. The Company s fully-integrated operations are a key factor leading to its success and continued growth.
