Sharps Container Disposal Services Process
Place sharps containers inside of wall mounts or on countertops within the immediate area of use.
Immediately after use, place used sharps into the sharps container.
Once full or ready to dispose, tightly close the lid. Use locking tabs and tape when available. Place the entire sharps container in an upright position inside of the regulated medical waste (RMW) container ensuring that no needles spill out.
On your scheduled service day, we will perform a one for one exchange of your onsite regulated medical waste (RMW) and deliver any pre ordered products (sharps containers, biohazard bags, etc).
Be sure to review our "5 Steps To Better Sharps, Biohazard & Pharmaceutical Waste Management" for more information.
Sharps containers are single use and are expendable to the generator. Sharps containers may be purchased from San Diego Medical Waste Services separately from your disposal service by visiting https://www.sdmedwaste.com/shop
