Sharps Disposal and Containers in Detroit
Sharps are dangerous because they can easily spread diseases by pricking or slicing someone. Infectious agents such as Hepatitis C (HCV), Hepatitis B (HBV), and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), can easily be spread by contaminated sharps.
Medical sharps include any material that can pierce the skin or puncture a waste bag and either has been or is intended to be used in a medical procedure or for research. Sharps include more than just needles—here is a list of some sharps commonly found in medical settings:
- Razor blades
- Acupuncture needles
- Scalpel blades
- Culture dishes and slides
- Hypodermic needles
- Suture needles
- Trauma scene waste that can cut, slice, or pierce
- Broken glass from the laboratory including slides and slide covers
- Syringes with and without needles
- And more

Dependable, Reliable Sharps Disposal in Detroit
Sharps need to be placed in the proper container before being disposed to protect anyone who handles them down the line from infection. It’s not safe to put loose sharps in with regular trash—it puts janitors, sanitation workers, and others at risk.
Designated sharps containers exist to help mitigate this issue. They are typically made of reinforced plastic and have a marked line to indicate when they’re at capacity. When you partner with a local waste management company they will supply the correct containers to keep your business in compliance and keep your employees safe.
Choosing the Right Sharps Disposal Container in Michigan
There are two basic types of sharps containers:
- Reusable Containers – These can be emptied, sanitized, and reused several times.
- Single Use Containers – These are totally sealable and are built to be thrown out with the sharps inside of them.
Sharps containers are constructed with safety in mind. They are built with puncture proof, rigid plastic so anyone who handles them is completely safe. Sharps containers and disposal practices are generally regulated at the state and local levels, so contact your local authorities for more information on acceptable sharps containers. If you partner with a local provider, they will set you up with the correct containers from the get-go.
