Medical Waste Disposal: 3 Tips To Reduce Medical Waste costs

Medical Waste Disposal Bins

Four 2-Gallon Sharps Recovery SystemThe proper management of regulated medical waste (also referred to as biohazardous waste, biomedical waste, sharps waste or infectious waste) generated in healthcare facilities and commercial businesses is critical not only to avoid regulatory fines but also to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Sharps and soft wastes (red bag waste), those saturated with blood or certain other body fluids, must be adequately handled, contained, stored, shipped and treated following all local, state and federal regulations. Working with an experienced and specialized medical waste management company that provides compliant systems and training ensures regulatory compliance.

Sharps Compliance is an industry leader with over twenty years of experience managing comprehensive medical waste removal programs for health care facilities and commercial businesses nationwide. We specialize in small to mid-size medical waste generators and offer affordable options for both sharps disposal mailback and medical waste pickup service. Our Medical Waste Management Experts will develop a program to match your healthcare facility's needs. We develop programs for single locations (dental, veterinarian, skilled nursing, medical offices, and more) or chains with hundreds of locations.

We manage medical waste removal programs for small to mid-size generators such as:

  • Dental Offices
  • Veterinarian Clinics
  • Medical Offices
  • Retail Clinics
  • Urgent Care Centers
  • Long Term Care Facilities
  • Home Infusion
  • Commercial Buildings
  • Hospitality

Biohazardous Containment & Storage

Individual state regulations, as well as volumes, usage, types of wastes, locations and mounting requirements, dictate container selection. Our sharps mailback systems include puncture-resistant, leak-proof sharps containers. We also offer systems designed to hold filled sharps containers and bags of soft waste. Our systems include the plastic container, prepaid shipping box, bag liners and tracking forms and meet or exceed all applicable regulations. In addition to our sharps mailback systems, we provide standard sharps containers for use with pickup or within our larger mailback systems.


It is important for healthcare facilities to train employees on RightClassification - proper segregation of waste types and minimization to reduce over-classifying of waste. Over-classifying includes placing items into the medical waste that can go into the trash. Sharps prides itself on helping you to Right Classify your waste to reduce unnecessary costs.

Packaging & Transportation

Sharps Compliance provides the best in USPS-authorized medical waste mailback services for small to mid-size generators. When facilities generate larger quantities of biohazard waste that is not efficiently manageable with mailback, we offer a pickup service. This blended service model permits Sharps Compliance to match the right service at each location, resulting in cost-effective and efficient management programs.
