Frequently Asked Questions


Sales Support

Our sales support team has years of sales experience within our industry. Our staff includes a call center and sales support training to help your franchise increase business and revenue.

Innovative Services

We have developed several service offerings that truly make a SharpsMD® franchise unique. In addition to our main service offering of medical waste transport and disposal, we offer online compliance, reusable container, disposable containers and spill kits, and our sharps mail back system.

Regulatory Assistance & On-Site Training

Every state has their own rules and regulations for the transportation and disposal of medical waste. Plus, there are federal regulations. Navigating your way through all of this can be a tedious process which is why we designed a state of the art software program that will enable you to know all of the rules and regulations and assist you in acquiring permits in a timely manner. It not only helps you stay current with the regulatory requirements but it will also do the same for your clients. This is an important added value for your customer.

After being trained on the software, you will also spend a day on the road with one of our experienced drivers. We can also provide additional training for your operator and team at your facility. (Please refer to the Franchise Disclosure Document for more details.) We leave nothing to chance. We want your business to grow and thrive so when you leave our facility, you will have the confidence to operate your SharpsMD® franchise.
