The Medical Waste Machine is a replacement for waste removal systems that cost senior living operators money, according to executives at Medical Innovations.

The machine lessens liabilities through its system, which converts medical waste into ordinary waste and eliminates sharps hazards such as needles. The process reduces waste volume by 75%, according to the company. The block of non-regulated waste, after it's been through the machine, can be put into regular trash.
