Safe handling of medical sharps and needles is an important safety consideration for your facilities’ employees and community. Loose used needles thrown illegally into trash containers and bags expose waste management workers to the potential of needle sticks and occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens incidents. This illegal disposal of used needles and syringes may result in the transmission of HIV, Aids, Hepatitis, and other serious blood borne illnesses.

When disposing sharps, be sure that you’re compliant with local, state, and federal laws and adhering to the policies and procedures of your facility. Medical waste disposal, used needles, used syringes, and used medical sharps shall be collected, stored and shipped in puncture proof, leak proof containers and bags that are color coded (red), labeled and tagged as medical waste.

For clinics, private practices, surgical centers, and other businesses that generate medical wastes, we offer a complete line of sharps disposal containers in a range of sizes and styles, including containers made from recycled plastic.
