Sharps bins allow you to safely dispose of sharp objects that can pose a serious risk to your health through an infection.


Using your sharps bin

Sharps bins can provide safe disposal of:

  • Syringes
  • Hypodermic needles
  • Scalpels
  • Razors and razor blades
  • Phials
  • Pipettes
  • Test tubes
  • Broken glass

Put needles or similar medical supplies into the sharps bin immediately after using them and do not try to take them out again. Only fill the bin to where it says "do not fill above this line".

Keep your sharps bin in a safe place so it's not a risk to other people and is out of the sight and reach of children.

Do not use other bins

Do not put used needles or other sharps in:

  • Any type of household bin (for example, a general rubbish bin or a recycling bin)
  • A container that's no longer needed, such as a drink can or bottle

Needles can cause injuries. Used needles can carry blood-borne viruses that may be passed on to other people.

Viruses that can be passed on through contact with needles include:

  • HIV
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C
