Recommended Waste Disposal Solutions for Veterinary Clinics and Animal Hospitals

Our suite of solutions offer a variety of options. We can help you select the best combination of containment solution, service frequency, and training program to fit yours and your team’s needs. Resulting in one comprehensive, enhanced, cost-effective program for your practice. 

Sharps Waste

Stericycle Sharps Solutions provide veterinary practices with a range of containers and service options for the disposal of waste generated from procedures, such as vaccinations, blood tests, and surgeries including spaying and neutering.

We recommend any sharps waste, such as needles and scalpels, be disposed of in a designated sharps container to reduce needlestick injuries and keep employees safe. 

Easily collect and dispose of small quantities of sharps with our self-serve mail back kit that includes a pre-paid shipping box and return labels for your convenience.

Pharmaceutical Waste

Stericycle Pharmaceutical Waste Solutions provide safe and compliant disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous materials, ranging from medication and ointments to anesthesia gas waste.

We recommend waste from expired, partially used, or contaminated medication or ointments be classified and disposed of in the respective containers for hazardous, non-hazardous, or controlled substance wastage only.

We also offer a solution to safely dispose of any schedule II-V controlled substance wastage, which is waste that was administered to a patient and no longer part of your veterinary practice’s inventory. DEA regulations divide controlled substances into 5 schedules depending on medical use or lack thereof, abuse potential, and likeliness to cause dependence. 

We also provide your patients (ultimate users) with mail back envelopes for disposal of unused consumer medications including pills and liquids.

Trace Chemotherapy Waste

Stericycle’s Biohazardous Medical Waste Disposal Solutions enable you to safely dispose of chemotherapy waste generated from treatment on animals.

We recommend all chemotherapy waste, including vials with trace amounts, undispensed products, IVs, needles and syringes, personal protective equipment, and contaminated materials from spill cleanups be properly segregated, packaged, labeled for safe pickup and marked for incineration.

Pathological Waste

Stericycle’s Biohazardous Medical Waste Disposal Solutions allow for the safe disposal of pathological waste generated from surgical procedures such as animal body parts, organs, tissues, and surgical specimens.

While this waste may be handled as solid waste, it may also be handled as pathological waste marked for incineration only.

Confidential Information and Documents

Our Shred-it® secure information destruction service provides safe and secure destruction of paperwork generated by your veterinary practice that contains confidential information, such as addresses and other pet owner information.

We recommend all confidential information be locked in secure consoles prior to being securely shredded with Shred-it.
