Since inception of the Company, Sharps Compliance's customers have prevented improper disposal of more than 600 million syringes from the solid waste stream and from potentially harming our citizens and the environment.

Medical and other healthcare-related facilities are discovering they have an alternative to the traditional medical waste pick-up service. The Sharps MailBack Recovery System is the first complete solution for the containment, transportation, treatment and tracking of medical waste, keeping it out of landfills, saving time and cutting the cost to dispose by 50 percent with no frustrating long term contracts, unexpected price increases or surcharges.

Sharps Compliance's first of its kind patent-pending GREEN Waste Conversion Process™ eliminates medical waste going into landfills by 100 percent. The process transforms discarded medical waste into a new product called PELLA-DRX™ – a clean, raw material used in manufacturing industrial resources, vital to everything from highways to high-rises.

" 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."

"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.

The Sharps Mailback Recovery System is designed for self-injectors, retail and mail-order pharmacies, communities and facilities including, professional offices, tattoo, long-term care and correction operations, home healthcare, pharmaceutical manufacturers, government agencies, and retail, commercial, and hospitality markets to facilitate the proper disposal of used needles, syringes and other medical waste.
