As a service to our customers in the Vancouver area, we have arranged for bulk pick-up at our office by an established medical waste disposal company.
For practitioners that purchase their acupuncture needles from us, we offer the opportunity to drop off your sharps containers at our office while you're picking up other supplies. Our aim is to provide you with a convenient and cost-effective way to manage your needle waste at a rate below the industry standard. How it works:
- Drop off your properly sealed* sharps container to our office at 9109 Shaughnessy St. in Vancouver, BC between 8am and 3:30pm Monday - Friday (Remember, we only accept drop-offs from customers who purchase their acupuncture needles from us).
- Pay the corresponding disposal fee
- Pick up your new sharps container while you're here!
*To reduce the risk of injury and needle-stick accidents, remember not to over-stuff your sharps container. Ensure the lids are tightly and permanently secured before they are brought into our office for disposal. If containers are not properly and securely sealed we will not accept them.
