World-leading sharps container disposal and management service for healthcare facilities

Protect healthcare workers from sharps injuries with minimal impact to the environment

We believe that through partnership with our customers and relentless advocacy for safer and greener practices, together we can make a safe, sustainable future possible.

Sharps is a medical term describing objects with sharp points or edges that can cut or pierce skin. Injuries from sharps have a lasting impact on the emotional health and wellbeing of staff, and a substantial financial burden on facilities, highlighting the need for safe medical sharps disposal.

Safety engineered devices (SED) have helped to reduce needlestick injuries, however studies show a safe sharps containment system is essential to protect staff and patient safety. Non-activation of SED has caused many sharps injuries, making safe and secure sharps waste collection essential to lowering injuries.
