Sharps waste management

Sharps waste is a catch-all term for materials and objects with sharp edges or points. To prevent the risk of injury, and possibly contamination, this type of waste must be stored in specialised containers and disposed of according to strict clinical waste guidelines. Our licensed collectors ensure full adherence to these guidelines, keeping you, your staff, and your clients safe. 

Sharps waste includes everything from pharmaceutical implements like hypodermic needles, scalpels, insulin pens, and lancets to other sharp objects like razor blades, pins, staples, scissors, broken glass and plastic, and even shards of bone or teeth. 

We can collect sharps waste from any business that need it, but the businesses and industries we most frequently collect from are as follows: 

Sharps disposal services

Management of sharps waste involves storing it in sealable or lockable sharps bins, whose sturdy design minimises the risk of damage or leakage, keeping the dangerous and potentially infectious waste away from human hands. Our sharps waste specialists can handle non-pharmaceutical sharps bins (orange lid), bins for sharps contaminated with medicinal products (yellow lids), and sharps contaminated with hazardous chemicals (purple lid).  

This means that whatever type of sharps waste your business generates, you can benefit from our collection and disposal services: our team will work with you to establish the collection schedule best suited to your needs, giving you the peace of mind that your sharps waste is properly taken care of.  We are also proud to provide your sharps bins for free, and to offer weekly or fortnightly collection schedules depending on the needs of your business.
