What are Sharps?

Sharps waste is a specific category of biomedical waste that poses a potential risk due to its sharp edges or points, capable of puncturing the skin or causing injury when mishandled. It includes a diverse range of items that require proper disposal to ensure safety.

Sharps encompass various objects commonly found in healthcare and medical settings, including but not limited to needles, syringes, broken glass, scalpels, culture slides, culture dishes, broken capillary tubes, broken rigid plastic, and exposed ends of dental wires. These items, when not managed appropriately, can pose a significant hazard to healthcare workers, waste handlers, and the general public.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) definition, sharps are classified as items like needles or broken glass that have the potential to puncture the skin. It's crucial to adhere to proper disposal practices and regulations to minimize the risk of injuries, infections, and the spread of pathogens associated with sharps waste.

By handling and disposing of sharps waste responsibly, healthcare facilities and individuals can contribute to a safer environment and protect the well-being of all those involved in waste management and public health.

  2. Sustainable management of regulated medical waste: The utilization of reusable sharps containers promotes a sustainable waste management approach by diverting waste from landfills and minimizing plastic waste.
  3. Hygienic and efficient handling: At the waste disposal facility, the reusable sharps containers undergo automated processes. They are robotically opened, emptied, thoroughly washed, and disinfected to ensure cleanliness and safety before being reintroduced into the inventory for reuse.
