Saving You Money

If you buy something from a retail center you are buying it from the end of the line, there was a manufacturer, who sold it to a retailer, who sold it to the end consumer. The manufacturer made money when they sold it to the retailer and the retailer made money when they sold it to the end consumer. In the medical waste disposal process, there are similar exchanges, the company you contract with, the hauler who transports the waste and the processing plant who destroys the waste. At Healthcare Waste Management it is like working directly with the manufacturer as we own the entire process of your medical waste disposal. Meaning, we are the company you contract with, we own the trucks and employ the drivers that haul the waste and we own the processing plants that destroy your waste.

West Des Moines, Iowa

West Des Moines in its early days was a stop on the underground railroad, the Jordan house was the house of one of the first settlers and was the location of the stop. The house has now been restored and is part of the historical society. It was also a trading and shipping junction and thus was called Valley Junction. This area was home to the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad’s switching facilities and repair shops due to its location which was the junction of several railroad lines. The area also has an early history of racing as it housed one of 24 tracks nationwide. This track was a wooden one-mile oval track made out of 2×4’s laid on edge. There was seating for over 10,000 people at the track, the track was anticipated to be the fastest 300-mile auto race in history in 1915. The race was dangerous for the drivers and mechanics and after two people lost their lives and others injured, the track closed two years later, and the wood was salvaged and then used to build buildings in Valley Junction.
