Sharps Disposal and Containers in Phoenix
A basic definition of sharps includes anything that can slice, prick, or penetrate the skin, or puncture cardboard boxes or waste bags. Medical sharps have either been used or are intended to be used for human or animal patient care for the purposes of medical research or industrial laboratories.
Used medical sharps are potentially infectious as they can spread dangerous agents, such as Hepatitis C (HCV), Hepatitis B (HBC), or Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Below are some examples of common medical sharps that need to be properly disposed of in designated sharps containers:
- Razor blades
- Trauma scene waste that can slice, cut, or pierce
- Suture needles
- Culture dishes and slides
- Acupuncture needles
- Broken glass from the laboratory
- Slides and slide covers
- Scalpel blades
- Syringes with and without needles
- Hypodermic needles
- And more

Secure, Dependable Sharps Disposal in Arizona
Never flush sharps down the drain or throw them in with normal trash. Used sharps have the potential to infect anyone who handles them. Avoid any mishaps for public sanitation workers by using a qualified service provider.
There are specific containers designed to make handling sharps safer. The containers are made of puncture proof materials, usually rigid plastics, and have a full line indicating when the container is at capacity. When these containers are properly used and labeled correctly, they greatly reduce the risks associated with sharps. All of our Phoenix providers can get you the best sharps for your office.
Choosing the Right Sharps Disposal in Maricopa County
There are two basic types of sharps containers:
- Single use – these containers are built to be thrown out along with the sharps inside of them. You use it, seal it, and toss it.
- Reusable – these containers are constructed so that they easily come apart and can be rinsed, sanitized, and reused over and over again.
Both container types are made from impenetrable materials and are effective safety measures against the risks associated with sharps. The fine details regarding legally approved sharps containers are mandated at the state level, so check with your local authorities for more accurate information.
