Sharps removal services

Needle disposal. Quick sharp.

Sharps (e.g. needles, lancets, and syringes) are classified as clinical waste and so must be disposed of in line with the government’s hazardous waste regulations.

What is sharps waste?

Any waste item that has the potential to puncture or pierce the skin is classified as a sharp. This includes:

  • Syringes
  • Hypodermic needles
  • Knives
  • Razors
  • Scissors
  • Scalpels
  • Broken glass

These items must be handled with the utmost care and you must arrange safe removal of sharps through a licensed sharps disposal company.

Why are sharps dangerous?

Used sharps present a serious health risk as they can carry highly infectious pathogens like Hepatitis B and HIV. If exposed, these viruses can cause severe and fatal health complications.

Sharps are dangerous as they can easily break the skin and cause life-threatening infections. You must protect yourself, your employees, and your visitors against this serious health risk.

This is why sharps must be collected with the utmost care by a professional sharps disposal company.

How should I dispose of sharps safely?

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.

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.

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.

What should I do if I am injured by a sharp?

If you, an employee, or someone visiting your facility is injured by a sharp, then we recommend following these steps:

  • Wash the wound with water and soap.
  • Dry the wound and cover with an appropriate plaster or dressing.
  • Seek medical assistance if the wound is serious or if there is a chance that the sharp was contaminated.
