Houston — Waste Management Inc., Houston, is expanding its medical waste operations by forming Waste Management Healthcare Solutions (WMHS). The group will provide Large Quantity Generators — such as hospitals — with collection and disposal of solid waste, regulated medical waste, and pathological and chemotherapeutic waste, as well as recycling.

Bob Shaw, who ran Scottsdale, Ariz.-based BFI’s medical waste operations in the 1980s and 1990s, will head the new group.
