All About Sharps Waste

Sharps waste is defined as being 'anything that has the potential to pierce, or has been used to pierce, the skin'. These instruments should always be put into the correct sharps bin.

If you’re unsure what this applies to, all the items below should be put into an appropriate sharps bin:

  • Needles
  • Scalpels
  • Stitch cutters
  • Glass ampoules
  • Sharp instruments
  • Shards of bone and teeth
  • Syringes
  • Lancets
  • Razor blades

It's important that your sharps waste is disposed of in a dedicated sharps bin of a suitable size. We will provide you with the correct sharps bin(s) as part of your sharps waste contract. And once filled, from here we take it away for incineration.
