Sharps Disposal Service

Safely dispose of sharps waste

 It is vital to ensure the safe management and disposal of sharps waste and the risks associated with handling sharps are eliminated and to ensure compliance with the Hazardous Waste Regulations .

The disposal of sharps waste is determined by the medicinal contamination. This contamination determines the colour of disposal bin required for the type of sharps waste that is being disposed of.

What items are classed as 'sharps'?

The definition of a sharps in HTM 07-01 is "any object that can cause a punture wound". This obviously means needles but can be something as simple as a sharp piece of plastic.
