Medical and other healthcare professional offices--such as doctors, dentists, vets, clinics, tattoo studios, and skilled nursing or assisted living facilities--are discovering they have an alternative to the traditional medical waste pick-up service.

The Sharps MailBack Recovery System keeps medical waste out of landfills, saves time and is about one-half the cost to dispose. THe system does not have long-term contracts or price increases or surcharges.

“The Sharps MailBack Recovery System costs 50 percent less than the traditional pick-up service,” said Kent Lawson, DDS, Family & Cosmetic Dentists. “No more scheduling pick-ups, long-term contract requirements, and unexpected price increases. It also addresses all types of medical waste generated in my office, not just syringes.”

Sharps Compliance’s patent-pending green Waste Conversion Process eliminates medical waste going into landfills. The process transforms discarded medical waste into a new product called PELLA-DRX--a clean, raw material used in the manufacture of industrial resources, from highways to high-rises.

“I never knew there was a green alternative for medical waste disposal until I was introduced to the Sharps Compliance MailBack Recovery System. I am very impressed that they keep my medical waste out of landfills,” said Hayley Nguyen, MD, Family Practice.

“Sharps Compliance is the only medical waste disposal company that can repurpose my medical waste into new products and it’s a lot easier to use,” said Jeffrey Chalkley, veterinarian, Westbury Animal Hospital & Pet Lodge.
