Sharps bins enable the safe storage and disposal of all categories of sharps waste. We provide an extensive range of UN approved colour coded sharps bins to ensure waste is segregated accurately for disposal.
All our sharps bins are impact and puncture resistant as well as being seepage proof ensuring complete protection for the user. We have sharps bins available in a range of sizes to suit your individual requirements and a wall or cabinet mounting bracket is also available for added security and safety.
The Health Technical Memorandum 07-01: Safe Management of Healthcare Waste document outlines guidelines for the correct segregation of waste to ensure compliance with legislation and to reduce the risk of injury. This includes a colour coding scheme for sharps bins as explained below.
For the storage and disposal of sharps not containing or contaminated with medicines, such as sharps used for blood samples and acupuncture
For the storage and disposal of sharps contaminated with or containing medicines or anaesthetics
For the disposal of sharps and medicines with Cyto-toxic or Cyto-static contents or contamination
For the disposal of out of date drugs, used drug denaturing kits and discarded items from use in the handling of pharmaceuticals such as bottles or boxes with residues, gloves, masks, connecting tubes, syringe bodies and drug vials
Our helpful guide to the correct waste colour coding shows the various disposal methods depending on the type of waste
