Specialist Needle and Sharp Disposal Services

Needles, syringes and lancets are commonly known and referred to as sharps.

This type of waste is classed as clinical waste which means that a specialist collection and disposal will need to be arranged.

At ProTech we deal with clinical waste on a regular basis.

When clearing out void properties we often come across sharps and drug paraphernalia. Our specialist clearance teams are fully equipped and trained to deal with all situations from single needle collection to a property full of sharps.

Why use Protech Property Solutions?

Needles can cause injuries to you or other people because they are sharp and once used they also carry fluids from bodies such as blood.

Used needles can carry infections such as Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Hepatitis C or Hepatitis B and can pass this infection on to you and other people.

Needles used to inject illegal drugs

Needles used to inject illegal drugs will heighten the risk that they will pass on infections as above.

How we deal with your sharps waste?

All used needles and other sharps will be collected and contained in a rigid box with a lid, these boxes are designed for the purpose of sharps removal.

These boxes are called sharps bins, sharps disposal boxes or sharps containers.

All collections carried out by ProTech are completed by our well trained specialist clearance staff who have many years of experience when dealing with a number of nasty waste types.

We tend to find that many of our clients who manage multiple properties have occasional problems with needles being discarded both in empty buildings, and even worse, in occupied buildings. Whether part of a void clearance, fly tipped rubbish clearance or a flat / house clearance, old needles lying around present a clear risk to anyone who may come into contact with them.

Our needle disposal service serves to reduce this risk by removing any needles / sharps from any premises. With our fully trained sharps teams, our Needle collection service follows all HSE guidelines and all necessary risk assessments are carried out, to ensure our customers receive the service they require.
