The sharpsPRO™ includes a comprehensive tracking system designed to
meet the specifications of the cradle-to-grave management system
required by the EPA.
This automated system eliminates all paper work used for tracking
biohazard waste. Dr. Garner says “This system gives us a lot of security
knowing that the date, time, container barcode and process temperature
are being accurately recorded during each operation.”
The sharpsPRO™ is easy to use and requires no maintenance. Because the
processed biohazard waste becomes sterilized and non-hazardous, it can
be recycled or thrown away in the standard trash.
The sharpsPRO™ simplifies the management of biohazard waste by eliminating the need for a disposal
service, forms and storage of bulky secondary containers. Dr. Garner says “Eliminating the disposal fees,
the paper work and the large secondary container was a big selling point when I decided to purchase the
sharpsPRO™ and it will pay for itself in about a year’s time.
Purchasing the sharpsPRO™ was an easy decision to make. It
certainly beats the status quo of how other vet clinics manage
their sharps waste.”
Since using the sharpsPRO™, Dr. Garner says “This system has
really simplified the way we deal with our sharps waste. The
sharpsPRO™ is extremely easy and convenient to use and it takes
up very little counter top space. The monthly pick-up of sharps
waste was usually not a good experience. We had to make sure
the paper work was filled out and the secondary container was
properly sealed and marked. When we’re busy it’s difficult to
make time to get it all ready. The drivers for the disposal service were not happy when they had to wait.
Now we don’t have to worry about that. We can process our sharps waste whenever it’s convenient for
Usually, we’ll start a process with one of our
sharpsCANs™ right before we close for business. Also, the
great part of using the sharpsCAN™ is that it can be reused
4 different times and that gives us the ability to process
over 1000 needles in a single container.”
“We also like the idea that we can recycle the processed
waste. When using a disposal service we know that it’s all
ultimately going to the landfill.
Now the sharpsPRO™
makes it possible to repurpose this waste.” explains Dr.
“Overall, we are very satisfied using the
sharpsPRO™. It’s simplified how we deal with sharps
waste, were saving time, money and it makes us feel better
that we’re helping the environment.”
