Colour-Coded Sharps Bins

The last thing you need in your workplace is confusion. Our sharps bin range is colour-coded to allow sharps users in your practice to easily identify which bin their needle, syringe or other sharps implement should be disposed into.

Available in a range of sizes from 0.4 litres to 35 litres, our colour-coded sharps bins are designed to fit your working practices. Your local Initial Medical consultant will be able to advise you on which bin size is the best fit to make sure you have adequate sharps bin storage between waste collections.

Safely dispose of sharps waste

The safe management of sharps waste is vital in preventing sharps injuries to staff or patients, particularly from needles. Healthcare workers, in dentistries especially, are more at risk of a needlestick injury than any other industry, meaning that sharps safety is crucial in healthcare practices and clinics.

As part of our waste management service, your local Initial Medical consultant will work with you to ensure your sharps waste streams are safe and compliant, giving full protection to your business, staff and patients.


Who collects your sharps bins?

Sharps bins supplied by Initial Medical are collected by our local technicians, trained extensively in customer service and in sharps safety. They are happy to answer your questions and find out how else they can help with your healthcare waste management.  

Sharps bins disposal - how often?

All sharps bins, no matter the size, should be collected before reaching three quarters full. If your sharps bin reaches a higher point, we advise speaking to your local Initial Medical consultant to arrange more regular waste collections.
