Needle Collection

Needles, syringes and lancets are commonly known as sharps.

If you find sharps on your premises then you could be compromising the health and safety of your staff, customers and the general public due to the harmful diseases they may carry such as HIV and hepatitis.

The risks from contaminated needles left by drug users is extremely high and it is very important that collection and disposal of these items is only carried out by licensed waste carriers who are fully trained and aware of the associated dangers.

Sharps will be collected by technicians trained in their safe handling and wearing the appropriate PPE (needle proof gloves etc). Items will then be contained in a purpose designed, lockable sharps box before being transported for High Temperature Incineration. Full documentation will be provided confirming full compliance with current legislation.

Intercleanse specialist technicians are fully equipped and trained to deal with all situations from a single needle collection to a full blown clearance of a disused squat or drug den.

Sharps are items that can cause cuts or puncture injuries and include:
  • Needles

  • Syringes

  • Lancets

  • Scalpels

  • Stitch cutters

  • Razor blades

  • Glass ampoules

  • Sharp instruments
