Proper Disposal of Sharps Leads to a Safe and Healthy Environment for Employees and Customers

Prevent Needlestick Injuries
In a recent survey, 38% of respondents* have disposed of used sharps in public trash cans because there were no safe disposal containers nearby and they had no other choice. Protect your staff from accidental needlestick injuries when cleaning restrooms and removing trash.

Safeguard Your Community
Protect the environment through responsible disposal, ensuring that sharps do not end up in municipal waste streams.

Provide Convenience and Elevate Your Brand
Patients often seek the privacy of restrooms to discretely and safely inject their medication used to treat chronic illnesses, such as diabetes. 42% say* that a lack of public safety disposal containers is the biggest challenge they face when it comes to sharps disposal.

Sharps Waste Disposal
Stericycle offers sharps containers in a variety of sizes, which can be securely mounted to workplace restroom walls. Our most popular option, a stainless-steel wall cabinet is a sleek, space saving unit that fits a 1.4-quart sharps container.
