Our Medical Waste Services

Regularly Scheduled Pickups

If you have a significant amount of medical waste to dispose of, our regularly scheduled service allows you to plan for ongoing pickup of medical waste—we schedule a time with your facility and will pick up and dispose of your medical waste based on your schedule, no matter if it’s daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly.

On-Call Pickups

We also offer on-call service for emergencies or facilities that don’t need medical waste pickup regularly (or only have a small amount that needs to be collected periodically). This service is identical to our regularly scheduled service but can be scheduled periodically whenever you need it.

Mail-Back Services

A mail-back system is another safe, secure option to dispose of your medical waste properly. Each system includes all the components required to package your medical waste to be disposed of at a secure facility. Utilizing a mail-back system is an efficient way to collect, return, and dispose of sharps.
