What goes into a Recovery System collection container?

For the home self-injector, sharps such as needles, syringes, and lancets can be safely collected in the Recovery System collection container.

For regulated businesses, sharps and used healthcare materials can be collected in the Recovery System collection containers.

Please note that no more than 50 cc (10 tsp.) of any liquid can go into any one sharps collection container. If using a secondary collection container, each sharps container placed into the system can hold up to 50ml.


Can I put the Recovery System sharps containers in my own packaging?

No. If you have lost your return shipping box, contact Customer Support (800.772.5657) for a replacement. Do not mail back your sharps collection container in packaging not provided by Sharps.
