Sharps Disposal and Containers in Miami
Sharps require specific disposal because they pose a serious health threat when placed loosely in the garbage. In addition to poking and pricking anyone who handles waste bags containing loose sharps, used sharps can hold infectious agents such as Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Hepatitis C (HCV).
Sharps are defined as anything that can prick, slice, or penetrate the skin, or puncture waste bags and cardboard boxes. They should be disposed of in puncture proof containers that are clearly labeled. Sharps waste can include a multitude of items, here are some of the most common:
- Broken glass from the laboratory, including slides and slide covers
- Razor blades
- Suture needles

Secure, Reliable Sharps Disposal Florida
Safety is the top priority when disposing of medical waste. Never flush your sharps down the toilet or throw them out with the normal trash—it puts sanitation workers, sewage treatment workers, the environment, and the general public at risk.
There are specific containers meant to hold and store sharps. They are typically made of rigid plastic and must be puncture resistant and sealable. Guidelines for sharps disposal are mandated at the state and local levels, so be sure to check with your local authorities for more exact guidelines in your neighborhood. Following the law will keep your practice and community safe.
Choosing the Right Sharps Disposal Container in Miami
Sharps containers can come in all shapes, sizes, and capacities. At a basic level they can be distinguished by two main factors:
Single Use – These containers are used once and thrown out along with the sharps within them.
Reusable – These containers can be disassembled, sanitized, and reused multiple times. They offer a safe and ecofriendly way to store your used sharps.
Regardless of the type of container you use, general guidelines pertaining to the material of the container will always apply. Designated sharps containers are specifically designed to keep employees, patients, and public workers safe.
