Doctors, Dentists, Vets & Office Managers Learn About “GREEN” Alternative To Traditional Medical Waste Pickup Service That Saves Time And Money: 50% Or More!

Stocks in this article: SMED

Sharps Compliance Corp. (NASDAQ: SMED) is helping medical professionals like doctors, dentists and personal care specialists such as veterinarians, clinics, tattoo studios, and skilled nursing and assisted living facilities save time, money and the environment with a “GREEN” alternative to the traditional medical waste pick-up service.

"We provide a unique alternative to traditional pickup services for disposing of needles, syringes, and other medical waste," says Jan Harris, Director of Environmental Health & Safety at Sharps Compliance. “Medical waste disposal can be expensive and difficult to schedule, and the long-term contract requirements and unexpected price increases are frustrating and unnecessary.”

Sharps provides a convenient, “eco-friendly” solution that in most cases, is half the cost of a traditional medical waste pick-up service and allows medical professionals to be environmentally responsible with the medical waste that leaves their offices while simplifying the waste management task for office administrators.

The Sharps MailBack Recovery System can be purchased and used at any time, eliminating the need to deal with scheduled pick-ups. It can be used to dispose of all medical waste generated in the medical professional office including syringes, needles, and red bag waste. Sharps Compliance also helps professional offices meet Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) standards and specific state medical waste regulations.

The Sharps MailBack Recovery System is a valuable solution for cost-effectively minimizing and properly segregating medical waste. In addition, its medical waste containers are designed to help protect employees from accidental needlesticks. The pre-paid containers can be directly handed to a US Postal Service mail carrier, without need for a post office visit. With Sharps Compliance there are no difficult-to-understand medical waste pick-up service bills, surcharges and administrative fees. The Sharps Mailback Recovery System includes one price for everything.

The Sharps MailBack Recovery System also can eliminate 100 percent of medical waste now going to landfills. Sharps Compliance’s first of its kind, patent-pending GREEN Waste Conversion Process™ transforms medical waste into a new product called PELLA-DRX™ a clean, raw material used in the manufacture of industrial resources, vital to everything from highways to high-rises.

Medical and personal care professionals across the country are enthusiastic about the Sharps MailBack Recovery System as a cost-effective solution to their medical waste disposal needs.

The Sharps MailBack Recovery System costs 50 percent less than the traditional pickup service I previously used,” 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.”

“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,” says Hayley Nguyen, M.D., 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,” says Jeffrey Chalkley, Veterinarian, Westbury Animal Hospital & Pet Lodge.
