Take-back programs provide safe collection and disposal of used household medical “sharps” (disposable needles, syringes, and lancets). However, by containerizing sharps for proper disposal, take-back programs generate tons of plastic waste. This webinar will explore the regulations, challenges, and benefits associated with the reduction, reuse, and recycling of sharps containers in France and other European countries. Program experts will describe the status of multiple approaches and how each advances a closed-loop economy. There will be ample time for questions.
