Mail-Back Sharps Disposal Systems


 

This Mail-Back Sharps System contains everything required to properly and safely package and dispose of your sharps waste (needles and syringes). When properly packaged by the waste generator, this Mail-Back Sharps System will meet all U.S. Postal Service requirements for sending sharps waste to a disposal site through the U.S. Mail. The generator must not place this system in the mail if it is not properly and securely assembled. Please follow these instructions when using the Mail-Back Sharps System.

STEP 3 - SEAL THE CONTAINER SYSTEM AND PREPARE FOR MAILING:

1) Place the properly sealed red sharps container(s) back into the plastic bag that is inside the brown inner box.
2) Securely seal the plastic bag using the tie provided.
3) To close the brown inner box that contains the sealed plastic bag and red sharps container(s), first fold the smaller
flaps down. Then fold the larger flaps down so that the edge of each flap meets together at the center point. Use one
strip of the tape provided to securely seal the entire length of the surface where the edges meet and allow the tape to
overlap onto the sides of the brown inner box for a secure seal. If the seal does not appear to be secure, apply your
own additional packaging tape to securely seal the brown inner box.
4) Close the white outer shipping box that holds the sealed brown inner box. Securely seal the white outer shipping
box using the second strip of tape provided. Cut the tape into approximately four strips of equal length and firmly
apply two of the strips about three inches apart along the edge where the inter-locking lid is located. Position the
remaining two strips by placing one strip in the middle of each side edge that is perpendicular to the inter-locking
lid edge. Make sure the tape is securely applied.

STEP 4 - KEEP A RECORD:

1) Remove the four-part Tracking Document from the plastic envelope affixed to the side of the white outer shipping
box. In the section marked “Generator”, where your address is printed, print and sign your name, and date the
Document. If your information is not printed or is not correct, print or correct the information prior to mailing the
container system.
2) Remove the back copy of the Tracking Document and retain for your records.
3) Place the three remaining copies of the Tracking Document into the plastic envelope located on the side of the
white outer shipping box, and close the envelope, (if you are in a state that requires it’s own documents, insert the
documents in the envelope behind the Tracking Document) the manufacturer or supplier will maintain a record of
the shipping containers and the Tracking Document, recording that your used sharps (i.e., syringes) were
received and disposed of.

STEP 5 - MAILING THE CONTAINER SYSTEM:

1) Enter your complete return address on the Merchandise Return Service mailing label located on the top of the
white outer shipping box. NO P.O. Boxes allowed.
2) Take the properly sealed container system to any U.S. Post Office or give to your postal carrier for mailing.
