Medical and other healthcare professional offices are discovering that 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 half the cost to dispose with no frustrating long term contracts, unexpected price increases or surcharges.  

" The Sharps MailBack Recovery System costs 50 percent less than the traditional pick-up service," says 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 is the only medical waste disposal company that can repurpose my medical waste into new products and it's a lot easier to use," says Jeffrey Chalkley, Veterinarian, Westbury Animal Hospital & Pet Lodge.
