Fluid Solidifier Sheets for Sharps Waste Management

It’s pretty simple needles don’t belong in the garbage. Unfortunately, the majority of self-injectors are still disposing of home-generated sharps in the household garbage. This places environmental service workers and the general public at risk for needle-stick injuries and infections from accidental exposure to used syringes (sharps) in the municipal waste stream (MSW). 

An increase in the average age of the U.S. population, prevalence of diabetes requiring treatment by insulin injections, pharmaceutical treatments delivered by injection, at home pet care and a pandemic will likely continue to increase the number of needles used and discarded in the home garbage.

Mail-Back Systems

Specialized waste management companies have devised mail-back sharps retrieval programs. This mail-back disposal method allows generators to ship sharps waste such as hypodermic needles, bloody bandages, swabs, IV catheters, needles, lancets to the disposal facility directly through the U.S. mail in specially designed and approved shipping containers.

Mail-back sharps disposal allows waste generators to dispose of smaller amounts of sharps more economically than if they were to hire out a truck service. These sharps retrieval programs are easy to use and come with prepaid postage. All one needs to do is put the container into the specially designed packaging, fill out a simple form and drop it in the mail.

Remarkably user-friendly, it has changed the way small-scale users such as doctors’ offices, clinics, and private individuals that do not generate enough medical waste to warrant a contracted pickup service.

To comply with Federal, State, and United States Post Office regulations and standards, mail-back kits must meet certain packaging requirements. For example, the secondary packaging must fit securely within the outer packaging to prevent breakage during processing. There must be enough material within a watertight barrier to absorb and retain three times the total liquid allowed within the primary receptacle as well.
