Sharps Compliance Partners with Veolia on E-Waste Recycling Program

Medical waste firm Sharps Compliance Corp. has agreed to partner with Veolia Environmental Services North America Corp. (VESNA) to offer its lighting and battery ship-back recycling program.

Houston-based Sharps agreed to jointly promote Chicago-based Veolia’s Recyclepak, its electronic waste take-back recycling option. Sharps will market the service to existing and prospective customers as a complement to Sharps’ line of medical waste and unused medication management solutions, according to a news release.

Sharps also will feature the option as part of its online product offerings.

“This arrangement leverages our longstanding experience offering mail-back solutions for the repurposing of medical waste and unused medications, allows us to offer our established and prospective customer base an efficient method to recycle these universal wastes as they reach end-of-life and highlights our commitment to providing environmentally sound recycling alternatives,” said David Tusa, president and CEO of Sharps.
