Medical waste program. (Product Spotlight).

Stericycle offers a safe, cost-effective method of containment and disposal of low levels of medical waste. Its Mail-Back Program is designed for facilities where used sharps and/or gauze and bandages need to be responsibly handled and removed for the protection of visitors, employees and residents.

A variety of packs in convenient sizes and configurations is available. They range in capacity from one quart to five gallons, providing 20- to 750-needle capacities in single or multiple container packages. Each pack contains FDA-approved sharps container(s), absorbent material, a red plastic liner, tracking forms and a postage-paid shipping container with detailed instructions.

The containers are authorized for pickup by postal carriers or for drop-off at local post offices, and a permanent record of proper disposal is kept on file at Stericycle.
