Rehrig Pacific Company, a market leader in reusable transport packaging, environmental waste & recycling collection containers, asset management & tracking solutions, reverse logistics, as well as packaging & container recovery services, introduces Rehrig Healthcare System’s Sharps Tank, an FDA 510(k) cleared, 17 gallon reusable sharps container.

Made in the U.S.A., the Sharps Tank can be used in all clinical and laboratory environments for the disposal of both small and large sharps. It has been FDA cleared as a Class II Medical Device and is also DOT approved, PGII rated for bio-hazardous waste collection. Unlike single use disposable sharps containers, the 100% recyclable and reusable Sharps Tank is both economically and environmentally sustainable with a life cycle of hundreds of uses. “As the market leader in waste collection containers and reusable transport packaging, we have applied our engineering and manufacturing capabilities to produce a more durable and sustainable 17 gallon sharps container for the safe collection and disposal of medical waste,” said Cindy Meissen, Development Manager, Environmental Group for Rehrig Pacific.

Perfect for areas with limited space, Rehrig Pacific has designed their large sharps container with a wide opening, side-hinged main lid and a transparent sub-lid for more restricted access and monitoring fill capacity. Each lid has a two position latch; one is for daily use and the other is a full lock position for transport. Optional accessories include a hands-free foot pedal dolly and a molded 4-caster rolling dolly designed for the clinical environment.

Rehrig Pacific designs the Sharps Tank for automated handling and to be highly nestable for efficient shipping and storing when empty. The HDPE main lid and container along with the polypropylene sub-lid are made with an antimicrobial additive for additional clinical protection.

For a closer look at the Sharps Tank, visit Rehrig Pacific in booth #212 at the AHE (Association for the Healthcare Environment) EXChange in Phoenix, Arizona from September 16th to 19th.
