SHARPSGUARD® orange is a comprehensive range of containers for the disposal of sharps, excluding those contaminated with medicinal products and their residues.
The container labels indicate that disposal should be by incineration or other authorised process and is designed for the consignment of waste categorised by the following EWC (European Waste Catalogue) codes: 18 01 01, 18 01 03, 18 02 01, 18 02 02.
To ensure the containers are safe and simple to use there are assembly instructions (where applicable) on the label, along with the details about how to keep the contents and users safe in between use. Whilst in use, the containers should be positioned safely using either a bracket or a tray from the POUDS® range – designed specifically for the SHARPSGUARD® containers. When the container is full (never overfilled) – (contents reaching the safe fill line where applicable) the container should be locked – again, details on how to lock are on the label, once locked the container should be disposed of safely. Care must be taken at all times when handling all Sharps and Clinical waste containers.
