About Republic Sharps Mail Back Service
The Republic Sharps Mail Back Disposal Service is ideal for people who use needles at home to treat diabetes, arthritis, cancer or other medical conditions. It's a simple, cost effective, confidential and offers an environmentally-responsible way to dispose of home-generated sharps waste and keep you and your community safe.
Home-generated needles and other sharps disposed among general household waste present a great risk to sanitation and sewage treatment workers, janitors, housekeepers, children and even pets. Some state governments either have or are in the process of establishing guidelines about proper needle waste disposal. California, for example, now prohibits disposal of needles in regular household waste.
Medical Waste Mail Back Kits provided by Republic Services are all inclusive and provide our customers with all necessary components required for the collection, transportation and disposal of medical sharps.
Each kit includes:
• A government-approved plastic container specially-designed for sharps waste
• Postage-prepaid mail back shipping box
• Pre-addressed shipping labels
• Prepaid disposal
The Medical Waste Mail Back Kits have been tested for safety and approved by the United States Postal Service for use in all 50 states.
All sharps containers are constructed from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) with screw caps for leak-proof protection. All containers have 3 1/8” mouth opening.
