New York-based Red Bags and Connecticut-based Pathacura, providers of medical waste disposal services, have announced their merger. The companies say they will combine their business operations under the Red Bag name in the coming year.

Pathacura brings more than 20 years of experience in the industry. Its focus on small and midsize waste generators allows Pathacura to help those companies with strict budgets and more diverse volume demands.

"We are thrilled to welcome Pathacura to the Red Bags family and to expand our services into Connecticut," says Sean Fredricks, president of Red Bags. "There is an incredible opportunity to expand these necessary services throughout the states of Connecticut and New York. We are confident the combination of the leadership and experience of the Pathacura and Red Bags teams will bring about a best-in-class, compliance-focused, medical waste disposal organization."

"Providing safe, quality service for our customers has always been our focus,” Michael Mongillo of Pathacura says. “Combining this with the experience and expanded services the Red Bags team offers allows us to accelerate our pursuit to improve medical waste disposal services for all medical waste generators throughout the state of Connecticut.”

Established by professionals with extensive experience in medical waste disposal services, Red Bags says it promises to provide the best and most consistent services to its customers. An expanded service menu allows the company to offer compliance training, paper shredding, pill bottle shredding, media destruction, hard drive destruction, file storage and disposal of light and universal wastes.

The combined companies serve a wide range of service sectors and industries, such as local and state services, schools, first responders, health care providers, life science, adult care, hospitality and veterinary.
