What Are Sharps & the Importance of Disposal
Medical waste is generated by healthcare facilities, various businesses, and homes. It is created in the diagnosis, treatment, and immunization of human and animal health. Medical waste falls into two categories, general medical waste, and regulated medical waste. Because of the possible danger to health and safety, sharps are considered regulated medical waste (RMW).
RMW has the potential to cause injury or spread disease, requiring specific handling and disposal to protect yourself and others. Sharps should never be thrown into the trash, placed in recycling bins, or flushed down the toilet. Instead, sharps should be immediately placed in an FDA-approved sharps container after use.
Our sharps services are a convenient way to get rid of your sharps safely and securely. Safe collection and disposal reduces the spread of disease and prevents injuries while keeping you in compliance with federal waste laws and OSHA regulations.
