Sharps

Any waste that’s sharp and which could pierce - or has already pierced - skin needs to be put into a suitably sized, appropriate and dedicated sharps bin.

Sharps include:

  • Glass ampoulesbin

  • Lancets

  • Needles

  • Razor blades

  • Scalpels

  • Shards of bone and teeth

  • Sharp instruments

  • Stitch cutters

  • Syringes

Ultimately, sharps waste is incinerated – but, of course, there’s more to it than that.

As the waste’s producer, you have a duty of care to ensure that this waste is:

  • Stored,

  • Categorised (according to the appropriate European Waste Catalogue (EWC) code – so that the company that collects the waste knows how to treat it),

  • Removed

and

  • Disposed of safely – and legally.

Moreover, you have a legal obligation to dispose of this waste in a way that protects you, your staff and the environment.

Among other things, this means that there’s a fair amount of paperwork involved in the process.

That’s where a professional, competent, Environment Agency licenced waste collection company – such as Waste King – can provide both a fast and efficient waste collection service and also provide you with the required paperwork. This includes Duty of Care certification as well as a consignment note detailing the type of waste, its EWC code, the quantity collected, the waste’s components, the hazard code and container type.
