MassBio Announces New Collaboration with E.L. Harvey & Sons, Inc.
The Massachusetts Biotechnology Council today announced its collaboration Massachusetts-based E.L. Harvey & Sons, Inc., a family-owned business celebrating 100 years of recycling and waste removal services.
By joining the already robust MassBio Purchasing Consortium as a Primary Supplier for Lab Recycling, E.L. Harvey & Sons has committed to offering MassBio members significant discounts on lab plastics recycling as well as other recycling and removal services.
This partnership came about in direct response to MassBio member feedback that lab recycling services were difficult and complicated for biotechnology companies to obtain.
“We appreciate E.L. Harvey stepping up to the plate to provide a service that not only helps our members dispose of their recyclable lab products, but also for their commitment to sustainability and the future of our planet,” said Robert K. Coughlin, President & CEO of MassBio. “
Overall, 85 percent of what E.L. Harvey collects is recycled, and the remaining waster is brought to waste-to-energy plants for disposal. No waste collected by the company ends up in a landfill.
In addition to lab plastics recycling, E.L. Harvey will offer MassBio members a 15% discount on services including NAID certified on site & off site document shredding, e-waste recycling & destruction, construction materials recycling, LEEDS reporting and roll-off & compactor services.
E.L. Harvey will also offer competitive cardboard rebates to MassBio members based on the existing Industry Yellow Sheet from the Official Board Markets Sheet.
“We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to provide our recycling and waste services to the members of MassBio. We are proud to work with an organization whose members are equally committed to ensuring the future of our planet as we are,” said Brian Alexson, vice President of Sales for E.L. Harvey & Sons.
The MassBio Purchasing Consortium leverages the power of the collective membership to negotiate contracts with vendors that save member companies significant amounts of money. Current consortium contracts include bulk gases, packaged cylinder gases, chemical and biomedical waste removal, lab supplies, office supplies, lab equipment maintenance, travel services, shipping and energy & natural gas procurement.
