WasteSafe is licensed and permitted to provide a variety of sharps transport and disposal services. We offer scheduled and on-call pick-up services to properly remove your sharps.
Used sharps can be dangerous to both people and pets. Needles that are saturated with blood or other bodily fluids and organic matter need to be disposed of in a safe manner to prevent risks. Failing to contain this material effectively could cause harm and serious health problems if infections are spread as a result of improper disposal. WasteSafe can help keep your employees safe by training them on how to properly discard used needles into containers that are specifically designed for the safe collection of sharps. These containers are then collected, shipped and treated according to local state and federal health regulations. Proper sharp disposal is imperative, whether you operate a health care facility, veterinary clinic, or small business. We have you covered.
