Sharps waste includes any device or object which can inflict a penetrating injury, and which may have been in contact with blood or other bodily fluids. Often the most dangerous items are drug-related paraphernalia such as needles, glass pipes, metal/foil and tubes etc. These items are classified as bio-hazardous waste and must be carefully handled from collection to disposal.
Sharps waste is commonly found in controlled environments such as hospitals, clinical environments and laboratories, but poses a threat to public health and safety when the right disposal procedures are not in place.
Our sharps waste removal service can be used in conjunction with our vacant property services, including bio-hazardous waste removal, to decontaminate the area and make it safe for use again. Our service can be used in the event of an emergency, at short notice or as part of a scheduled collection.
