Medical waste recycled into new products

Sharps Recycling

Sharps Compliance Inc. has unveiled the first of its kind, patent-pending Green Waste Conversion Process, eliminating medical waste going into landfills by 100 percent.

The process transforms discarded medical waste into a new product called Pella-DRX – a clean, raw material used in the manufacture of industrial resources, vital to everything from highways to high-rise buildings.

Sharps currently addresses medical waste for approximately nine million individuals in the United States who self-inject, producing a staggering three billion syringes per year, professional offices, clinics and other related regulated sites.
