Regulated Medical Waste

Regulated medical waste, as defined as both red bag waste and sharps waste, can be generated in both healthcare facilities and commercial businesses. This type of waste must be properly managed not only to avoid hefty regulatory fines but also to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Sharps and soft wastes (red bag waste) and those saturated with blood or certain other body fluids must be compliantly handled, contained, stored, shipped, and treated following all local, state, and federal regulations.

Sharps Medical Waste Services is an industry leader with over 25 years of experience managing comprehensive medical waste removal programs for healthcare facilities and commercial businesses nationwide. Our medical waste company specializes in small to mid-size medical waste generators and offers affordable options for both sharps disposal mailback and medical waste pickup service.

Packaging & Transportation

Sharps Medical Waste Services provides one of the best USPS-authorized medical waste mailback services for small to mid-size generators. When facilities generate more significant quantities of biohazard waste that is not efficiently manageable with mailback, we offer a pickup service. This blended service model permits Sharps Medical Waste Services to match the right service at each location, which results in cost-effective and efficient management programs.

Medical Waste Pickup Service

Sharps Medical Waste Services operates medical waste pickup services nationwide. Biohazardous pickup services are vital for healthcare facilities that generate larger volumes of medical waste not suitable for mailback. When our mailback service is not the best fit for a location, typically due to volume, we provide a route-based biohazardous waste disposal pickup service.

Our unique ability to blend services of both sharps mailback and biohazardous waste pickup offers our customers the best in accessibility and pricing. We deliver the same regulatory compliance assurances to both pickup and mailback locations by ensuring DOT standards, proper treatment, and online documentation of treated waste is available.

Medical Waste & Sharps Disposal Mailback Service

Our medical waste and sharps disposal mailback systems offer the best in convenience and regulatory compliance. They are available in a vast array of configurations to meet any facility's needs.

All Sharps' systems pass rigorous testing for USPS approval for the safe transport of regulated medical waste (UN3291). All biohazard mailback systems include a primary collection container, prepaid postage, pre-addressed return shipping box, components to package for transport, waste manifest tracking form, instructions for use, proper treatment, and online documentation of treated waste. All systems are uniquely serialized for tracking and provide complete cradle-to-grave compliance with local, state, and federal regulations. Visit our online store for all mailback systems.

Biohazardous Containment & Storage

Individual state regulations, volumes, usage, types of wastes, locations, and mounting requirements dictate container selection. Our sharps mailback systems include FDA-cleared, puncture-resistant, and leak-proof sharps containers. We also offer systems designed to hold filled sharps containers and bags of soft waste.

Our systems include the plastic container, prepaid postage, pre-addressed shipping box, bag liners, and tracking forms that meet or exceed all applicable regulations. In addition to our mailback systems, we provide standard sharps containers for use with pickup or within our larger mailback systems.

Right Classification

Healthcare facilities need to train employees on Right Classification, including proper segregation of waste types and minimization to reduce over-classifying of waste. Over-classifying waste includes placing items into medical waste that can go into the trash. Sharps Medical Waste Services prides itself on helping you to Right Classify your waste to reduce unnecessary costs.


Sharps Medical Waste Services treats all waste responsibly and follows all applicable regulations. In most cases, we autoclave the waste and then repurpose it into a new resource, thereby avoiding placing treated containers into a landfill.


Our online medical waste tracking and documentation portal offers customers access to all waste manifest documents 24/7/365. This service is offered free of charge with no bookkeeping or records management fees like other companies charge.
