Two medical waste management firms have formed a partnership.
Houston-based Sharps Compliance Corp. and Chicago-based Daniels Sharpsmart Inc. agreed to a joint marketing alliance, the companies said in a news release. Daniels’ operates a system for sharps reuse to reduce medical waste. Sharps Compliance provides a mail-back service for medical waste and used healthcare products, and offers the Pella-Drix process, which turns sharps and other medical waste in pellets that can be used as fuel.
Sharps and Daniels will offer Sharps' mail-back/ship-back solutions for small quantity generators of medical waste and used healthcare products. Daniels will provide its route-based pickup services for larger-quantity generators of medical waste. The companies said customers can blend the services to include both of offerings.
"By combining our easy-to-use and cost-effective Sharps Recovery and TakeAway recovery systems with Daniels, we believe we can serve the entire U.S. marketplace with the most cost-effective option for managing sharps disposal, medical waste and used healthcare product treatment," said David Tusa, Sharps Compliance president and CEO.
