Waste-Disposal Units, Sharps

Definition : Puncture-resistant containers used for the disposal of sharps, including syringes, needles, laboratory glassware, stylets, lancets, blades, scissors, trocars, and scalpels, without recapping, cutting, or bending. These units are typically constructed of plastic (polypropylene, polycarbone, or high-density polyethylene) or cardboard (compressed fiberboard). Some containers have absorbent liners to hold fluids that may be left in syringes or ampules. Container inlet designs allow sharps to be inserted either vertically or horizontally. Circular disposal slots are typically designed for vertical insertion; rectangular ports are designed for horizontal insertion. Mailbox slots have fixed or moving parts that stack the contents horizontally so that points are not directed upward or downward. Some inlets are designed to automatically lock out when the unit is full. Some units are translucent or have translucent lids or windows to allow monitoring.
