“Sharps” is a clinical term that generally refers to needles used in medical procedures such as suturing, injecting, etc. Other terms that people use include syringe or hypodermic needle disposal.
Whichever term is used, proper storage and disposal of potentially dangerous sharp objects is not only desirable, it is essential and also a legal obligation. Sharps bins are almost always yellow in colour and self-contained to avoid contamination. We offer a specialist sharps disposal service for organisations and individuals across the UK.
