Research for what would become Environmental Biological Services began in early 2012. At that time, entrepreneurs John P. Fulkerson and R. Vance Fulkerson Sr. were considering a new business concept that would serve the local and regional community in a profound and needed way. After a period of thought-provoking due diligence and discussions with family and professional contacts, they realized the need for an honest, dependable, and safe local option for facilities and individuals who need assistance with the collection, transportation, disposal of Regulated Medical Waste (RMW). The proper handling, collection, and ultimate disposal of regulated waste streams has become increasingly challenging for Healthcare Providers and Facilities through governmental legislation and increasing regulation.
There are multiple regulatory agencies at both the state and federal level that affect regulated waste services and impose a variety of complex compliance requirements, including obtaining and maintaining government permits. Regulated waste is subject to onerous environmental protection laws, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards that apply to most aspects of the business, and ADEM and DOT transportation laws regulating the transportation of these waste streams and other potentially infectious materials. In early 2013, EBS became a fully permitted, insured, and integrated Regulated Waste Management Company.
Our corporate core values encompass Knowledge, Integrity, and Safety and that is what our team lives 3-6-5. EBS understands the need for safe, secure, and compliant waste stream management when it comes to your Bio-Hazardous, Pharmaceutical, Pathological, and Hazardous Waste. Our process ensures safe, effective, and efficient disposal in an environmentally sound manner. The EBS team is committed to excellence and teamwork with all of our valued customers and we stand on our founding Biblical principles to guide us each day. We believe that transparency and honesty is what each of our customers deserve and is a bedrock principle to how we operate our business.
EBS provides fully-screened and trained medical waste transportation experts who provide consistent, on-time pickup, and we’re always willing to work with your schedule to ensure that waste is removed when you need it, including on-call emergencies.
At EBS, our team handles the entire pickup and transportation process for you so that you can focus on patient care and practice management.
As a fully-permitted, fully-insured regulated waste transporter by the Department of Transportation and the Alabama Department of Environmental Management, EBS ensures that the highest standards of safety are met in the transport of Regulated Medical Waste. Our RMW collection containers meet all DOT specs and standards for medical waste transportation.
Our center contracted with EBS for medical waste a few years ago and they have provided excellent service from day one! The entire staff is professional and responsive to our requests. They have also offered disposal solutions for hazardous chemicals and expired medications. The EBS drivers who service our center are delightful! They are friendly and always have a smile on their face. We are truly pleased with EBS.
We made a change to EBS when they were a young company several years ago to save money from our national regulated medical waste (RMW) provider. After a multi-year partnership, our decision has been justified in many ways. We benefited not only from the cost savings, but from the impeccable service levels, response times, process improvements and education programs for our laboratory staff and overall operations. I highly recommend EBS for any organization with RMW needs who wants engaged, knowledgable partners to provide the highest quality and most cost effective service for their customers.
EBS has met and exceeded our expectations as our medical waste management and OSHA training partner! From our initial meetings discussing our contract to our monthly scheduled pick-ups to our yearly OSHA training, the team at EBS is committed to our success. Our satisfaction is their goal. Their team is professional, dependable and available.
Our company has been with EBS for over a year now. We have always received excellent professional service. In addition, OSHA training has always been organized and educational.
I believe we were one of the first accounts for EBS having transitioned over to them 5 years ago from one of the large national chains following years of poor service & support. While looking for a new medical waste provider, it was really important for us to identify a small, more efficient company who was customer service focused and who could get the job done without creating new problems for us. I can say without hesitation that we found all of this and more when we made decision to partner with EBS. Our time with EBS has been a very positive as their entire team remains service oriented and they are always extremely professional when on-site at our facilities. I would recommend them without hesitation !
