To understand our company better, there are two aspects of our company that make us unique. We are a technology-driven company. Our medical waste software program that we developed is a web-based system that is driven by the data that the driver enters and scans into our system using a smartphone device. This allows us to track, route and invoice and create reporting on all waste from pick-up to disposal. The other aspect of our business is our experience, which is well respected in the industry. Our staff activities have recently included:

In addition to our involvement in the industry and our years of service within the medical waste community, this proposal represents a well thought out proposal for your company. Our principal goal is not only to get your waste processed within the rules and regulations, but to give you the most cost effective proposal for the management of your waste. We achieve that through technology and experience!

To best serve Florida Blood Services needs for the removal of regulated medical waste, we have prepared a service option for your evaluation and discussion.

In preparing this option, we stayed focused on the primary goal of effective disposal of your regulated medical waste; however, we have also considered much broader factors such as cost of transportation, containment, FDOH compliance and labor.

We believe that the issue at hand is not merely how to dispose of medical waste but how to maximize each of our strengths that is beneficial to both parties.

Doctor explaining about biomedical waste being improperly disposed During the 1990's, there was a large increase in accidental needle sticks. In 1997, an estimate of 800,000 was reported. Thus, Sharps MD® was founded by a group of doctors, nurses and various consultants with over 70 years combined experience. Our objective was to find alternatives to protect people and create a safe environment by eliminating accidental needle sticks and reduce the risk of blood borne pathogens while also promoting a green friendly way to decrease landfill volume and high insurance costs.
