Stericycle Launches Re-Engineered 1 Gallon Containers

Stericycle is pleased to announce the launch of our re-engineered 1 Gallon SafeDropTM Sharps Mail Back and 1 Gallon CsRx® Controlled Substance Wastage containers. The containers are designed for the storage and transport of patient and at-home generated sharps waste and controlled substance wastage. This launch is the latest investment in our container portfolio to bring our customers innovative, sustainable services and first-to-market products.

The re-engineered 1-gallon containers retain all the features of the current containers and have an improved design equipped with the following:

  • Tethered lid to allow easy container closing with a single hand
  • Modern aesthetic with redesigned handles for better grip and handling
  • 40% less plastic compared to our prior containers, helping to reduce CO2 emissions associated with the manufacturing of the containers*

Stericycle delivers solutions and drives innovations that help protect the environment, people, and public health.

In 2022, we treated 1.5 billion pounds of medical waste, helping to protect the public from potentially infectious material and incinerated 38 million pounds of pharmaceutical waste prior to disposal, helping to keep active pharmaceutical ingredients out of waterways.

Stericycle was a pioneer in sustainable medical waste disposal and continues to this day to innovate solutions that protect the team members, patients, and communities of healthcare organizations around the world. We continue to identify ways to reduce plastic from our products without compromising integrity while providing a more modern design that is compatible with current brackets and mounts. Shortly, we expect our complete SafeDropTM and CsRx® suite of containers will be re-engineered with other sizes, also featuring the new, improved design.
