As hospitals and other medical environments can often generate a lot of clinical and potentially harmful waste, it is important to ensure that correct storage and disposal systems are in place. The Sharpsguard Orange 1L Com-Plus Sharps Container for Scotland (Case of 30) conforms to SHTN 3, enabling the safe disposal of sharps via the orange stream.
Please note that the Orange 1L Com-Plus Sharps Containers are not suitable for sharps contaminated with medicinal products.
The Sharpsguard Orange 1L Com-Plus Sharps Container has been designed to provide a safer method of storing sharps for disposal via the orange stream. The solid structure features a sliding door with an aperture. This is both convenient and makes it easier to add sharps to the container.
The container also includes an orange lid to allow for colour coding. This will provide a visual prompt for eliminating the chance of objects being placed in the incorrect containers. The label on the front of the container will also provide improved safety, with space for writing information including the container’s location, department, and start date.
Rectangular Shape for Versatile Use

Since it is conveniently shaped, the container is also perfect for wards and departments where space for storing unused containers may be limited. This practical shape will help to ensure that there can always be a spare container at hand should one be needed at short notice.
The Sharps Container conforms to the Scottish Health Technical Note 3: NHSScotland Waste Management Guidance. This means that it meets the specifications required by the standard for the disposal of sharps that have not been contaminated by medicinal products.
