Waste Management offers a safe, confidential and cost-effective medical waste disposal to several of the communities we serve. The MedWaste Tracker℠ provides individuals, companies and institutions a way of disposing used hypodermic needles, lancets, test strips and other small quantity medical waste. Each system includes a specially designed sharps container and a postage-prepaid shipping container ensuring your medical waste will be delivered safely by the U.S. Postal Service to a certified medical waste resource recovery facility.

There are a variety of container sizes available for the home user and one for commercial customers. All are designed to meet all local, state and federal requirements. All provide a worry-free, responsible and safe needle disposal system. Order the one that best fits your personal volume of use.

Disposal Guidelines

You may contact the Orange County Health Care Agency - Environmental Health at (714) 433-6000 and ask to speak to the medical waste inspector in your city for information about where you may take these items for safe disposal. In Orange County, a number of medical facilities have been approved by the Orange County Health Care Agency to act as "home-generated sharps consolidation points." These approved consolidation points have agreed to accept used medical sharps from the public at no cost. Additional information is available on the Orange County's website.
