A video presentation prepared by Aurora's local Channel 8, was presented along with the award for Environmental Sustainability by George Noe, Aurora's City Manager.

The Environmental Sustainability Award was given to Colorado Medical Waste for demonstrating its commitment to:
- Energy efficiency
- Waste diversion
- Waste reduction
- Water conservation
- Social responsibility with sustainable medical waste disposal methods
Using the natural oxidizing power of ozone, electricity, and an industrial shredder, waste volume is reduced by 90% to a sterile confetti residual with "ZERO" emissions as ozone reverts back to oxygen. Tons of medical waste streams are diverted from landfills, incinerators, and hazardous waste facilities. State of the art processes eliminate the public health effects and environmental impact of antiquated autoclave and incineration technologies. Efficacy tests prove ozone is 100x's more effective than steam. Colorado Medical Waste and ozone medical waste processing, brings medical waste management into the 21st century.
This responsible, innovative and environmental technology:
- Is supported by regulatory agencies
- Serves the medical waste generating community
- Conserves natural resources
- Demonstrates recycling and reuse
- Reduces waste and pollution
- Reduces exposure and liability
- Reduces our carbon footprint
- Represents the future
Hanstrom says, "We are leading the industry and are at the forefront of environmental stewardship to reduce our carbon footprint." Accepting the award, Hanstrom thanked the City of Aurora and said, "This award is a celebration of joint collaboration, we're all winners." She asked the audience to raise awareness by asking their healthcare providers, dentists, and veterinarians how they dispose of their medical waste. "Tell your family, friends and neighbors about us. The problem won't get fixed if no one knows it's broken." Hanstrom also said, "I was told that medical waste contracts are all about the bottom line. The health of our planet will ultimately affect the quality of our lives. Doesn't that make us the bottom line?"
