Also stocked are sharps containers for the safe disposal of needles and other sharp medical equipment. Sharp medical equipment should never be disposed of in public bins or with general waste, the use of a suitable container is vital, as they contain the used sharp objects in a thick durable material, critical for protecting veterinary staff and the general public. If needles or other sharp objects were left in general waste dispensaries, they could pose a physical risk to the public. Sharp medical equipment poses a biological risk to anyone in its proximity, as needles and other medical equipment are often used on patients with dangerous infections or bacteria. If left in general waste, accidental needle-stick injuries could occur. Sharps Containers help in two ways to prevent anyone being injured through an accidental cut or puncture: firstly, they are manufactured from a highly durable puncture resistant-plastic so the sharp objects within are safely contained; secondly, they are brightly coloured, with warning signs, so as to alert everybody that there could be potentially dangerous used medical equipment within the container. All needles and syringed should be disposed of in a sharps container.
