Sharps MD® is a full service biomedical waste management company located in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Our parent corporation is Waste Alliance®, Inc. which is registered with the Federal Trade Commission as a franchisor that is currently approved in 39 states. Sharps MD® of Tampa Bay and Sharps MD of South Florida which serves the Miami, Ft Lauderdale area are among our first company-owned franchises. In addition we have Sharps MD® of West Florida which incorporates Bradenton to Naples. We have a reputation of providing unparalleled customer service and listening to our customers' needs.
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.
Sharps MD® personnel have developed a medical waste disposal and management program with the objective to Go Green and Save Green®. With the Florida Department of Health and the Environmental Protection Agency increasing their standards for health and environmental compliance healthcare facilities need to make sure that their regulatory procedures are in compliance. Our medical waste disposal and management program is a complete solution offering pickup, removal, transport, and disposal for a low monthly fee. Sharps MD® partners with licensed treatment facilities and suppliers throughout Florida.
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:
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! We believe that the issue at hand is not merely how to dispose of medical waste but how to maximize each of our strengths to the benefit of both parties.
