Enhance Environmental Sustainability Efforts with Sharps Medical Waste Services' Waste Conversion Process™
Transforming Medical Waste into Energy
Regulated medical waste returned to Sharps' treatment facilities is scanned, weighed, properly treated, and then repurposed using our Waste Conversion Process, thereby avoiding use of landfills.
- Sharps scans and weighs all medical waste for manifesting and regulatory reporting in accordance with all applicable regulations.
- Sharps treats returned medical waste though autoclave sterilization, which renders the waste noninfectious, removing all bacteria and potentially infectious material.
- Sharps then shreds all treated, non-infectious waste to prepare for our patented Waste Conversion Process, which repurposes waste into a new resource — energy used to generate electricity for homes and business.
