Convenient and Safe Sharps Disposal with a Compliance Expert

A Well Known Risk

Sharps is the term used for any item with sharp points or edges that can puncture or cut the skin. This includes medical items but also broken glass or plastics. Sharps can cause injury and may carry the risk of infection, so it is important that they are managed carefully and correctly.

Comprehensive Management of Sharps Waste

While many healthcare organisations focus on how to safely and compliantly dispose of sharps waste inside their organisation, they can lose sight of what happens to waste once it leaves the facility. From disposal to transportation to treatment, a knowledgeable medical waste management partner can play a key role in ensuring the waste management process is handled properly from end to end.

Compliant Sharps Management

We manage the sharps disposal from clinical environments, laboratories, training centres, independent businesses and health and well being facilities.

Types of sharps

Sharps that have been contaminated with medicinal products

The yellow waste stream is used for waste that has been produced from the treatment of infectious patients or those suspected of having an infection. Yellow-stream waste must be treated by alternative technology, via shredding and sterilisation at our EPA licenced facility.

Sharps contaminated with hazardous medicine

The purple waste stream is used for any waste contaminated by hazardous cytotoxic and cytostatic medicines (e.g. chemotherapy drugs, birth control, chloramphenicol). Purple-stream waste must be sent for above 1,000 degree incineration at a suitably authorised facility.
