Who is EnviroMerica?

Why EnviroMerica? What is your advantage over the competition?

EnviroMerica offers three primary differentiators from our so-called competition:

  1. EnviroMerica gets it right. We are so sure that we can protect you and your community, that with our EnviroSafe™ Complete and Premiere packages, we offer EnviroMerica’s Guarantee Against Fines, which is the indemnification of your facility against monetary penalties imposed by OSHA resulting from any errors or omissions by EnviroMerica on all services and products provided for up to $2 million per incident.
  2. EnviroMerica simplifies your life. Our service offerings cover the entire gamut of waste management and compliance needs: an integrated online compliance portal, onsite waste management pickup and disposal, and our live training and inspections. In addition to our service offerings, we understand that our job is not just about removing medical waste or training you, it’s really about removing the complexity from medical waste management while being compliant with the most recent regulations. We know it’s our job to simply yours.
  3. EnviroMerica fits in your budget. Not only do we offer a customizable set of services that cover just about any industry’s medical waste management and compliance needs, but we are the first and only provider to do so with transparent, flat-rate pricing.

As a family-operated company driven by family values, we are also large enough to provide nationwide service, yet small enough that we can provide a high level of personalized service. The advantages are clear.

What is management’s background and experience?

EnviroMerica was founded and is led by Julian Goduci. For nearly 20 years, he has worked closely with healthcare firms of all sizes as a business and regulatory compliance and liability consultant. In doing so, he has become well-known industrywide for his expertise in practice management, regulatory compliance, accreditation, and medical waste management.

Our entire management team has decades of industry experience in medical waste compliance and disposal. Read more about them here.

Do I even need a compliance program?

If you deal with any medical waste whatsoever – or even potentially could create medical waste – then YES, you must have a compliance program. You are required to have a compliance program by federal laws, state laws, and the regulatory mandates of a wide variety of government agencies and local medical/dental boards. Noncompliance puts you not just at risk of heavy monetary penalties, but you could also be imprisoned or worse – you could expose yourself, your staff, or your family to the severe hazards of improperly handled medical waste.

Do I really need someone just to handle my sharps?

Small facilities may not always need regular onsite pickups. Many of our smaller clients are great candidates for our mail-back sharps disposal system, and can use our online interactive compliance portal to assure compliance in other areas. One of our experts can help you determine your needs. Please call EnviroMerica at 650.655.2045 or contact us.
