Product Details

The SharpStar Sharps Container with counterbalance lid is the premier choice for proper sharps disposal. Don’t run the risk with other containers that present a risk to healthcare providers for both biohazards and accidental needlestick injuries.

Benefits of the SharpStar 5 Quart Sharps Container
The lid to this sharps disposal container offers a unique design that limits access to the contents because of the potential health risk involved with this type of waste management. (Needles and sharp objects can poke through bags and stick those handling the waste.) The disposal of sharps should never incorporate recycling bins, trash cans or household containers. The only safe disposal option is a heavy-duty plastic container designed specifically for sharps waste.

When handling any kind of needle, safety is of utmost importance. Any contact with blood is a biohazard and can transmit bloodborne pathogens and viral diseases between patients and care providers. Be sure to also use sanitizers, disinfectants, or bleach to clean any surface that comes into contact with bodily fluids.

The SharpStar container is puncture-resistant to ensure the safety of healthcare workers and those handling disposal. Waste disposal is crucial in healthcare facilities to prevent reusing needles and the biohazards associated with it, and regulated medical waste is the best way to eliminate this risk. The SharpStar container can be used for needles, lancets, pen needles, syringes, hypodermic needles, and any sharp medical products. It can be used in hospitals, doctor offices, pharmacies, and anywhere a needle will be used.

Safe sharps disposal is possible, thanks to this container’s see-through design, which allows for quick and easy visual monitoring of the contents. The container stops at the “FULL” position to prevent overfilling at maximum capacity, because overfilling the sharps collection container poses a risk for individuals to come in contact with used needles. Needles are not reusable.
