Medical Waste Processing Technology Startup OnSite Raises $3.5 Million Seed In An Oversubscribed Round
“There’s been very little innovation in medical waste disposal in decades,” said CEO Brad Barnes. “I’m proud to be a part of advancing OnSite Waste’s technology and help bring a new method of convenient, safe, and cost-effective medical waste technology to market.”
The funds from this round will be used to bring OnSite Waste’s novel technology to medical practices around the country, with a launch scheduled for May in Orange County, California, where the company is headquartered. OnSite Waste’s TE-5000 is a desktop-sized processing unit that converts regulated medical waste – sharps and red bag waste — into sterile garbage, safe for the medical practice’s regular trash. This unique technology is leased to the medical practice for a low flat rate, and the staff uses disposable canisters to destroy and dispose of hazardous bio-waste conveniently in their office without the need for costly and potentially risky hauling.
“We’re excited to help OnSite Waste disrupt an old industry with this exciting technology that solves critical pain points. Southern California is a rapidly growing startup ecosystem and leads in many areas, and medical technology is one of them, and OnSite Waste’s product is another great example,” said Michael Beaudoin II, Director of Private Equities at Mark IV Capital.
About OnSite Waste Technologies
OnSite Waste Technologies is pioneering a novel way for medical and dental practices, and other generators of medical waste to dispose of their hazardous medical waste conveniently in their location’s regular trash. TheTE-5000, a simple-to-use desktop-sized unit, converts regulated medical waste into sterile garbage for small-scale medical waste producers. The TE-5000 reduces the liability associated with the traditional method of hauling waste to a central location by reducing or eliminating the time waste sits in a practice. For practices paying too much for their current hauling service, the TE-5000 can also have a significant impact on the bottom line.
