Do you pick-up in my area?

If you’re in the greater Phoenix area, we’ll absolutely pick-up your regulated medical waste because we service all healthcare in Phoenix, Arizona and beyond!

If your facility is outside of the greater Phoenix area, there’s a good chance we’ll pick-up your waste, but just in case you are in a rural area, please give us a call at 1 (713) 357-6299 now, and within 10 seconds, we will let you know if we have trucks coming to your area. If we don’t have trucks coming to your area, we’ll offer you another solution to get biohazardous medical waste in Phoenix picked up.

Are there any additional fees?

Unfortunately in our industry, many companies’ quotes look low-cost, but unscrupulously, they have sneaked in hidden fees and/or have hidden ways to administer “price increases” (“PIs”) in their contracts for as much as 18% twice per year! (That would double your cost every ~4 years!)

We run an honest, fair, and ethical business, so we have no hidden fees and we guarantee we will refrain from raising our price. Period.

How do I dispose of syringes in AZ?

In Arizona, syringes should be disposed of in FDA-approved sharps containers. These containers are puncture-resistant, leak-proof, and properly labeled. Once full, they can be taken to designated collection sites, like pharmacies, health clinics, or waste collection facilities.

What should be discarded as medical waste?

Items classified as medical waste include used bandages, gauze, gloves, disposable medical tools, contaminated items, and sharps like needles and syringes. These items pose a risk of infection and must be disposed of in specially marked biohazard containers to ensure safety.

How do I dispose of a sharps container near me?

To dispose of a sharps container, locate nearby drop-off locations such as pharmacies, hospitals, health departments, or dedicated sharps disposal facilities. Some areas offer mail-back programs or special waste pick-up services. Check with local health departments for specific guidelines and locations.

How do you dispose of safe sharps?

Safe disposal of sharps involves placing them in a sturdy, FDA-approved sharps disposal container. Do not clip, bend, or recap needles. When the container is three-quarters full, seal it and dispose of it at a designated sharps disposal site, or through a mail-back program.
