Welcome to the State of California 

Mail-Back Systems

By using an approved mail-back system, medical waste generators can dispose of their waste in an economical fashion. These systems return the waste to an appropriate medical waste treatment facility. As of January 1, 2015, the Department no longer grants approvals for the systems. The systems must meet USPS standards. See this page for the USPS mailability standards for medical waste (601.10.17):  http://pe.usps.com/Archive/HTML/DMMArchive20100607/601.htm
