Sharps Compliance Corp. Announces Purchase of Medical Waste Disposal Facility and Addition of Autoclave Technology
Date:1/23/2008

p>

With the addition of the autoclave, the Company believes it will own one of only approximately ten (10) permitted commercial disposal facilities in the country capable of treating all types of medical waste.

Dr. Burton J. Kunik, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, "We believe the purchase of this incineration facility coupled with the addition of the autoclave technology further solidifies our leadership in the industry and expands the disposal services and capabilities that we can provide to all small quantity generators of medical waste. The purchase of the Carthage facility and addition of the autoclave technology also further strengthens the vertical integration of the Company."

Sharps is also expanding its ability to dispose of unused medications and expired pharmaceutical waste including controlled substances. The Company is in the process of installing Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) approved equipment necessary to obtain DEA certification for the disposal of controlled substances. It believes that it will be in a position to accept unused medications and expired pharmaceutical waste, including controlled substances, for destruction within the next 30 to 60 days.

The total cost of the incineration facility purchase, addition of the autoclave technology and other planned improvements at the Carthage, Texas facility is estimated to be approximately $900,000 and expected to be incurred in the third and fourth quarters of fiscal year 2008.

Dr. Kunik added, "The autoclave technology enables us to apply an environmentally cleaner and less costly alternative technology to treat medical waste. The expansion plans augment the continued build out of our operating infrastructure to ensure our long-term ability to serve prospective customers. The ability to diversify our revenue stream also expands our growth potential."
