The disposal of sharps and how you approach it says a great deal about how seriously your organisation takes the health and safety of your staff and the general public. It is vitally important to ensure that you're disposing of sharps in a safe manner using a sharps container to eliminate the risks associated with the handling of sharps. As the demand for Sharps disposal increase exponentially due to coronavirus vaccinations,  there are a growing number of institutions that would benefit from effective sharps containers including hospitals, care homes, pharmacies and other vaccine sites. Citron Hygiene can supply the required units in various sizes and also safely remove the waste as part of our managed service.

What Are Sharps?

“Sharps” is the medical term used for any device that has a sharp point or edges that can puncture the skin. This includes needles, syringes, scalpels, razor blades, phials, glass and lancets. If you use anything with a sharp edge that can cut the skin then it needs to be treated as sharps waste and safely managed.
