Environmental Leader

Veolia and Advanced Environmental Options are among five companies that have received “non-site-specific” special permits for handling Ebola waste, according to Reuters.

The other special permits have been issued to Stericycle, Triumvirate Environmental and Smith Systems Transportation, according to a spokeswoman for the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.

Under the permits, the five companies are not limited as to where they can pick up Ebola-related waste or dispose of it.
