Management of Hazardous Waste from Health Units (HWHU)

All health units, such as public hospitals, private clinics, health centers, local units of EOPYY, diagnostic centers, microbiological laboratories, dental clinics, veterinary clinics and private clinics of all specialties, generate waste. We can serve all categories of healthcare units with efficiency and reliability.
