Medical waste, including used syringes, used needles and used lancets, has been strictly controlled by governments for decades to protect the general public from physical injury and secondary infection from accidental needlesticks. In the U.S. medical waste disposal by medical institutions is closely monitored by state and local governments as well as the FDA and EPA in the interest of public health.
But the exponential increase in doctor-prescribed injectible medications in recent years has resulted in billions of used needles, used syringes and other medical waste entering the household waste stream annually with a corresponding increase in needlestick injuries and environmental impact. As the number of incidents and associated costs rise, more and more communities are choosing the Medical Sharps Kiosk from Johnsons Environmental Products as their preferred solution for a convenient, cost-effective and versatile sharps disposal alternative.
