What to Ask for in a Sharps Disposal Service

Over a third of all web and phone inquiries we receive are related to Sharps Disposal. Most of the time the person doesn’t know what exactly they are after. Luckily we are experts in sharps and clinical waste disposal, and have come up with these handy tips to help you get the sharps disposal service you need.


Most people come to us with either one of two problems relating to sharps disposal. The first being that the person wants to set up a regular, managed sharps disposal service at their business or workplace. Many businesses require a managed sharps disposal service plan, where sharps containers on site are collected and replaced on a regular basis. We provide managed sharps disposal to medical centres, halfway houses and not-for-profits, fast food restaurants such as McDonalds, local councils, surgeries and even tattoo parlours looking to dispose of used sharps. If this sounds like what you are after, then there’s a couple of things you to consider when getting a quote for a managed service.

1.What size containers you need. We offer a range of sizes, from 1.4L to 22L. The required size depends on what kind of volume of sharps you are collecting, and the available space you have for the container

2.Is the container going in a public place? If so, you may want to consider a vandal resistant sharps Disposal Locker, which are popular choices for Non for profit halfway houses and fast food restaurants.

3.Thirdly, based on this information, we can work out a frequency solution most suitable for your business. We offer a wide range of pickups, from quarterly all the way up to monthly.


The second problem is that the person has a bunch of yellow sharps disposal containers and they don’t know how to correctly dispose of. This is what we call our “Call-Out Disposal Service”.

In this instance, the first thing we need to know is what exactly you are disposing of. We collect Yellow Sharps Disposal containers, Clinical waste containers and Purple Cytotoxic waste containers. We do not collect ANY LOOSE individual sharps, or Sharps that are not in designated yellow or purple clinical waste containers. If you are in need of yellow disposable sharps containers, we offer them in many sizes and are available for direct purchase. The second thing we need to know is – How much you are disposing of. Our ‘Call-out’ disposal is charged on a per-litre basis. It’s a good idea to know what sizes the sharps containers that you need to dispose of are, and how many you need to dispose of. Then we can easily work out a flat price for you.

We hope that this guide has helped you determine what you need to know when getting a quote for sharps disposal in Perth. Please keep in mind that sharps are dangerous when they are disposed of incorrectly.  Leave it to us, the authority in sharps disposal. We are more than happy to give you peace of mind by offering a professional sharps disposal service that ensures the safety of your employees and patrons.
