WAUSAU, Wis., July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — LB Medwaste Services, a leading medical and infectious waste removal and processing company, announced plans today to apply for a GSA Schedule and actively pursue federal contracts. Government officials utilize GSA Schedules as a means of procuring goods and services knowing that companies on these schedules have been qualified and thoroughly vetted by the General Services Administration (GSA). LB Medwaste Services noted increasing regulations and demand for proper biohazard disposal as a key motivator in seeking a GSA Schedule contract.
“The opportunity to service government accounts opens up significantly more markets throughout the region as our goal continues to be to expand westward,” states Jeff Evenhouse, President at LB Medwaste Services. He continues, “Getting our company on a GSA schedule will expand our reach beyond the federal level to numerous state and county agencies throughout the region as they will be able to take advantage of our disposal and processing of medical bio-hazardous waste services at set government pricing.”
