If your business handles sharps, then these cannot be thrown in your standard waste collections and should be managed by a professional sharps removal service. Every company that handles sharps needs to know how to dispose of sharps correctly and safely.
Sharps bins or sharps containers should be used to store sharps safely until they are collected. Sharps bins feature a puncture-proof design and will keep sharps safe and secure while they are being stored at your facility.
Sharps disposal box
At Ultima, we sell a sharps disposal box that is suitable for disposing of used sharps, including those contaminated with medicinal products and bloodborne pathogens.
You can order a sharps disposal box by visiting the Ultima Store. We can also arrange sharps container services if your facility handles sharps.
How to dispose of sharps containers
Once a sharps disposal bin is full, you must dispose of it correctly and in line with government guidelines. Sharps disposal companies can collect sharps containers from your premises on a regular basis. You can search online for sharps management companies that offer this service in your local area.
