Traditional waste disposal pick-up companies use antiquated systems, including large dedicated trucks that generate a tremendous amount of pollution to collecting sharps waste. Couple that with the pollution associated with treating relatively small amounts of regulated waste and ultimately driving it to a disposal site and its easy to see there are many wasteful and expensive efficiencies in this process. The average sharps container is driven 100 miles BEFORE its treated and then another 50 miles to a disposal site. By comparison Isolyser/SMS is disposed of using transportation vehicles already visiting your office. Isolyser/SMS containers are driven about 50 miles before disposal, about 100 fewer miles per sharps container.
