5 Litre Sharps Bin: Yellow Sharpsguard Container
Our 5 litre sharps bin is designed for safely disposing of needles and other medical sharps such as razor blades, making it ideal for use by phlebotomists. It has a push-down, one-piece lid that secures your sharps. The container is supplied with the lid fully assembled. The box has a fill line within it and the contents must not exceed that line. When the needle disposal box is full to the fill line, you will need to dispose of the contents responsibly. You may be able to drop it off at a GP surgery or pharmacy, or some local councils do offer collection services (at a charge). The sharps waste must be disposed of every 3 months, even if it isn’t full yet, in order to stop the build-up of potentially contaminated materials.
This container is suitable for the disposal of the following items: needles, syringes, lancets, auto-injecting pens, connection needles, razors, blades, scalpels and more. A sharps bin can be used in both professional and home settings. It is especially useful for diabetics to keep in the house to dispose of insulin needles, or you can place the sharps bin in doctors’ offices, nurses rooms and hospitals to hold the medical sharps waste that accumulates in that working environment. The container labels indicate that disposal should be by incineration or other authorised process and is designed for the consignment of waste categorised by the following EWC codes: 18 01 01, 18 01 03, 18 01 09, 18 02 01, 18 02 02, 18 02 08. This 5-litre sharps bin is manufactured to BS7320:1990 standards.
