Accidental needle sticks from improperly-disposed syringes are an unwanted hazard for thousands of people each year. Because of that, the Environmental Protection Agency now recommends Sharps Disposal by Mail System® and advises the public on the proper disposal of syringes. Additionally, a number of states like California have enacted legislation banning needles from residential and commercial trash pick-up to protect their residents.
The Sharps Disposal by Mail System®
The Sharps Disposal by Mail System is the first complete system for the proper disposal of used needles, syringes, and other small quantities of biohazardous waste. It's the perfect disposal solution for individuals who self-inject, or medical facilities generating small quantities of medical waste. Sharps Disposal by Mail System is Government-approved and includes:
- specially-designed, mailable Sharps container
- a postage-prepaid return shipping box with barcode tracking
- a protective 4 ML bag liner
- instructions in both English and Spanish
- a multi-part, simplified manifest tracking form
When your Sharps Disposal by Mail System container is full, just place it in the pre-paid postage return box, and it will be delivered via U.S.P.S. to the Sharps treatmetn facility. Upon receipt, Sharps will document the delivery, weight, and destruction of each container and its contents. Confirmation of destruction will be made available electronically using the company's proprietary SharpsTracer™ system.
This is the simplest way for your tattoo and piercing shop or medical practice to dispose of used needles and syringes. The Sharps Disposable Recovery System will save you time and money and protect the environment, so don't delay; order Sharps Recovery System kits today!
