Sharps is a healthcare risk / medical waste stream. It refers to needles, scalpel blades, surgical knives, infusion sets, saws, amino hooks, broken glass, ampoules etc. Sharps are considered a highly hazardous waste stream due to its double risk – one of a sharps injury and the other the transmission of disease.

32 Litre Access Plus Sharpsmart features a full opening lid without a tray to provide full access to the container. This is the ideal solution for the safe containment of long, bulky sharps such as trochars, laparoscopic instruments and various other surgical devices..
The Sharpsmart container has been strategically engineered to minimise risk by enabling single-action sharps disposal:
The maximum sensitivity safety tray is activated by the weight of the waste with a single swing action.
The safety-tilt mechanism releases the waste safely into the collector away from the user.
The swing-action safety tray effectively conceals the aperture to ensure no hands ever come into contact with contaminated sharps.
The gravity balanced mechanism of the tray resets to an open safe-disposal position after each use until the collector is full.
