What do medical waste companies do with sharps containers?

152 viewsOther

I work in a veterinary clinic. I know that we put sharps into sharps bins, which go into a big medical waste box when they are full, and that a medical waste company picks them up.
What happens after that?

We get 35 lb boxes shipped from throughout the country and deliver 8-30 per day to a large plant in our area. They wait until they have a truck full and take it to an incinerator.
