Our Sharps Disposal and Management Solutions

 

Compliant and Environmentally Friendly Sharps Disposal

While many healthcare organizations focus on how to safely and compliantly dispose of sharps waste inside their organization, they can lose sight of what happens to waste once it leaves the facility. From disposal to transportation to treatment, a knowledgeable medical waste management partner can play a key role in ensuring the waste management process is handled properly from end to end.
