  • What is a Sharps Bin?

    A Sharps Bin is a specialised container designed for the safe disposal of medical sharps, which are items that can puncture or cut the skin. A common use for a Sharps Bin is to dispose of needles that are used for GLP-1 injections.

    Types of Sharps

    Sharps can include:

    • Needles: Used for injections or drawing blood.
    • Syringes: Used to administer medications or for other medical procedures.
    • Lancets: Used to prick the skin for blood glucose testing.
    • Scalpels: Used in surgical procedures.
    • Infusion sets: Used in diabetes management.
    • Connection needles/sets: Used in infusion therapy and for accessing ports.
  • Why do you need a Sharps Bin?

    Importance of Proper Disposal

    Improper disposal of sharps can pose serious health risks to healthcare workers, waste handlers, and the general public. Sharps can carry blood-borne pathogens like HIV, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C, which can cause infections if someone is accidentally pricked or cut by a discarded sharp.

    Environmental Concerns

    Improperly disposed of sharps can also pose environmental hazards. Sharps that are thrown into regular trash can injure waste handlers and create a risk of contamination if they puncture waste bags.

    Community Safety

    For individuals who use sharps at home, such as those with diabetes or other medical conditions requiring regular injections, a Sharps Bin provides a safe and convenient way to dispose of used sharps without endangering family members or caregivers.

    Final Disposal

    Once a Sharps Bin is full, it should be properly sealed and disposed of according to local regulations. This may involve taking the bin to a designated collection site, a pharmacy, or a healthcare facility that accepts used sharps for disposal.

    In summary, a Sharps Bin is essential for the safe and responsible disposal of medical sharps to protect public health, comply with legal requirements, and minimise environmental impact.
