Exclusive: Company contracted by Govt. to dispose of “Ebola” infected materials has a Nasty History of Illegal Dumping / Bain Capital Connected
More Cronyism has been found ALL OVER the recent “Ebola” Scare. Here is yet another example of how serious your leaders are taking Ebola and the removal / destruction of medical waste.
This just in from our Confidential Eye Witness in Texas:
A few days ago, I went to do some work at a medical facility in Port Arthur, TX., and I learned that they had patient zero’s incinerated belongings there, allegedly still contaminated with Ebola. I found out that the company taking care of disposing the bio-waste was called Stericycle. I did some research and found out that this was the same company involved in the fetus heater burning scandal at some hospital in the northwest. They were also caught burying fetuses in a New Jersey landfill (instead of incinerating them like they were supposed to).
While I was there, the current controversy was that Stericycle was trying to dump the bio-waste in Louisiana. But some judge there barred them from doing so. That was no surprise given Stericycle’s horrendous track record. If I was that Louisiana judge, I wouldn’t want that crap in by back yard either.
I also found out that this government contractor, Stericycle, was owned at some point by Bain Capital, in other words, Mitt Romney… what a small world this is! They are also based out of a suburb in Chicago (Northbrook, IL)… can you say Rahm? Barry-O?
Wow… another coincidence?
Just as Rick Perry and his ‘task force’ announced that UTMB (University of Texas Medical Branch) in Galveston will take care of the Ebola bio-waste disposal, the MSM announced that another hospital worker took a cruise ship out of Galveston and is being quarantined.
Galveston may very well be the next ‘Ebola epicenter’ in this psy-op.
UTMB in Galveston has Ebola bio labs there.
WHO IS STERICYCLE?

Stericycle Controversy: Mitt Romney Invested In Medical-Waste Firm That Disposed Of Aborted Fetuses, Files Show
NORTH SALT LAKE — For the third time this year, plumes of black smoke and incinerated medicate waste blew out of an emergency bypass valve at Stericycle, according to the company.
After legislators gave approval, Stericycle began the process of moving to Tooele County far away from homes, but the relocation can’t come soon enough for some residents watching its continual bypass events.
“They have made zero effort to communicate with the community — that they are still in,” Communities for Clean Air co-founder Natasha Henderson said Thursday.
While driving home from work around 5 p.m. Wednesday, Henderson saw a big, dark cloud of smoke billowing from Stericycle.
There are so many unborn babies being discarded in the world today that some are now being illegally shoveled into landfills right along with household waste. One waste disposal company was caught doing this in 2011, trying to cut corners and save money.
How is their morbid business practice reprimanded? Just a few years later, the company responsible is awarded the special privilege of hauling away high-risk Ebola waste from the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. Apparently, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) doesn’t care about this company’s sketchy background. Can we really trust a company that illegally dumped babies in a landfill in order to save money to properly dispose of Ebola waste? Why did this unethical company get the contract?
U.S. government grants controversial Stericycle permit to dispose of Ebola waste
The DOT just granted controversial Illinois-based Stericycle a permit to haul away large quantities of Ebola waste out of Texas. Stericycle has a questionable history of illegally dumping aborted babies in landfills and was even caught using the babies to fuel an Oregon power plant.
The DOT permit details how the waste is to be disposed, providing instructions for operation controls during transit, but the Department of Transportation gives Stericycle plenty of leeway on how the waste will be disposed. The carrier is supposed to maintain a written spill response plan just in case there is a travel accident. The waste is to be sealed in a series of inner and outer packaging and disinfected with CDC-approved cleaners. The question still remains: How will it all be disposed of from there and can Stericycle be trusted?
Stericycle caught using deceased babies to fuel Oregon power plant
There are some groups who already mistrust Stericycle after the company was fined $42,000 in 2011 for illegally dumping aborted babies in a municipal landfill in Austin, Texas. The babies were disgracefully dumped into the landfill alongside household and commercial garbage. If Stericycle broke their permit then in the most morbid way, how can they be trusted with Ebola waste? The Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ) ruled that Stericyle failed to “prevent the disposal of treated fetuses at a municipal solid waste landfill,” and TCEQ also charged the disposal company with “failure to comply with permit conditions.”
To make matters worse, a little over a year ago, Stericycle was caught using deceased babies from an abortion clinic to fuel a local power plant in Oregon. Upon the discovery, the Marion County Board of Commissioners in Oregon severed their contract with Stericycle.
Still, that matter won’t affect Stericycle too much, for the federal government just gave them a landmark permit to take care of Ebola waste in Texas.
As a result of the media attention and the public outcry, the US Congress passed the Medical Waste Tracking Act of 1988, and the US medical waste industry was born.
The seeds of Stericycle were planted in the late 1980s, around the same time that illegally disposed medical waste began rolling onto the beaches of the Atlantic Coast. The media dubbed the event “Syringe Tide.
Stericycle’s hospital offerings grew in 2003 when it acquired Bio Systems. Today, Stericycle Sharps Management Service with Bio Systems containers is the US leader in reusable sharps container management service.
In 2014, a major acquisition expanded and complemented our existing specialty waste services, making Stericycle a leader in hazardous waste solutions. With the formation of Stericycle Environmental Solutions, we broadened our ability to serve the needs of our healthcare, retail, and other regulated waste customers.
The company’s international business began in 1997 with a joint venture in Mexico.
Since then, Stericycle has created services, tools and resources for healthcare professionals not only in the United Statesand Mexico, but also in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Ireland, Japan, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
Beyond services related to healthcare wastes, in some markets the company has expanded its offerings to include management of certain hazardous wastes as well as patient transport and medical courier services.
