Disposing of used sharps and syringes isn’t simple, especially for patients at home. You can’t simply toss them into the trash or recycling bin, even if they’re inside a plastic bottle. That would endanger your municipality’s waste handlers and pose potential hazards to children, pets, and others. In some states – notably California, Oregon, and Wisconsin – it is actually illegal to dispose of syringes and needles this way. Read more about legislation applicable to your area.
Waste Management offers a variety of MedWaste TrackerSM sharps mail return products that are convenient, easy to use, and approved by relevant governmental agencies. All you have to do is put your waste in our postage-paid packaging and mail it to us. We’ll take care of it in accordance with all applicable regulations and provide you with documentation of its safe disposal. Our solutions are safe – for your family, for your community, and for the environment.
