AeroHazard Sharps Disposal Container 4.5L 

Aero offers a wide range of waste disposal containers designed to meet user demands for strength, simplicity and value. This range offers outstanding protection against penetrating sharps and leaking fluids due to its rigid polypropylene construction and wall thickness.


sharps container is a rigid plastic container that is used to safely dispose of hypodermic needles and other sharp medical instruments, such as IV catheters and disposable scalpels. They are often sealable, self-locking, and rigid, which prevents waste from penetrating or damaging the sides of the container. In the United States, sharps containers are usually red and marked with the universal biohazard symbol for ease of recognition. Elsewhere, they are often yellow. Waste is loaded into the container until it reaches a certain height, usually around three-quarters of the way full. At that point, the container is emptied or disposed of.


Sharps containers may be single-use, in which case they are disposed of along with the waste they contain, or reusable, in which case they are robotically emptied and sterilised before being returned for re-use. Airports and large institutions commonly have sharps containers available in restrooms for safe disposal for users of injection drugs, such as insulin-dependent diabetics. Medical facilities and laboratories are also equipped with sharps containers and the equipment required to safely sterilise or dispose of them. This minimises the containers' distance and the number of people to contact the sharps waste. Federal regulations require smaller clinics or offices in the workplace health and safety without such facilities to hire a company specialising in transporting and properly disposing of hazardous wastes.
