Improve Pharmacy Staff Safety with Compliant Sharps Disposal

Save Time and Effort
Mailback kits with Department of Transportation (DOT) compliant sharps containers are shipped directly to your pharmacy with preprinted shipping papers. We also provide a convenient auto-replenishment option and monthly reporting.

Convenient Sharps Disposal for Immunizations
Simple-to-use, USPS compliant mailback system that includes prepaid shipping box and return labels. Sharps disposal is tracked using barcodes and proof of destruction provided.

Sharps Container Design
The sharps containers are Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared and allow many types of sharps waste, such as needles and syringes. Our containers were designed to accommodate an additional 20-25% more sharps waste.




All-in-One Sharps Mailback Program for Retail Pharmacies

Our sharps containers are available in a range of sizes to suit any immunization program and are shipped to your business with easy instructions and a prepaid return-shipping box. When the container is full, or at the end of your program, you can easily return—safely and compliantly—with the preprinted manifest supplied with the containers.

  • Sharps container and plastic liner
  • Step-by-step instructions
