Waste Management Inc. (NYSE: WMI) has made significant progress in the disposal of sharps, as per new EPA regulations. In 2001, Waste Management signed a joint marketing agreement with Sharps Compliance Corp. (OTCBB: SCOM) to introduce safe disposal systems for individuals who use needles or syringes in their homes. The Sharps Disposal by Mail system allows home users of sharps to order a disposal box through Waste Management. When the disposal box is full and ready to be emptied, home users can then send it directly by U.S. Mail to a resource recovery facility operated by Sharps Environmental Services of Texas Inc.
