Trusted By Thousands Of Customers

"Savings. Biomedical waste disposal was able to drastically reduce our waste management bill (more than 20%) with no loss of capacity, frequency or customer service. Personally, I feel a great relief each month knowing we are no longer overpaying thanks to BWD."

Monica B.

Edmonton, AB

"We contacted BWD and asked them if they could address the needs of our dental office, which has a significant adjustment for seasonal volume. Our previous provider would hit us with steep fees during the busy months. With BWDwe now have level, consistent pricing… thank you!"

Amanda G.

Spruce Grove, AB

"We switched to BWD because the customer service from our previous provider was incredibly frustrating. To say it was a night and day difference is an understatement. After 1 year with BWD we have not had a single unexpected charge that was not resolved within a business day"
