Arrive and clear site
If you are happy with your quote we will simply arrive on a day of your choosing to perform the needle sweep and sharps collection. Our waste operatives will be trained and prepared for the different types of jobs they may need to attend. As long as we can access the requested space, you won’t have to be in at the time.
Dispose of sharp waste
With the area now cleared of hazards, we will take the collected sharps to be safely disposed of. We pride ourselves in our responsible handling of waste, whether it’s bulky waste like wardrobes or hazardous waste like needles.
What needle collection jobs do you accept?
We specialise in performing sharps collection and needle sweeps by hand. As a result, we are unable to provide sharps and needle bins.
An old building that is ready to be refurbished but has had needles left in by unwanted visitors is something we could help with. Maybe an alleyway is part of your property and has attracted sharps waste lately? We would not be suited to regular visits to a GP as they tend to require sharps bins.
What we can collect
Our needle sweep service is suited to scenarios where a typical rubbish removal may apply.
- Littered alleyways
- Buildings before refurbs
- Discarded knives
- Waste removal + needle sweep
What we can't collect
Medical scenarios and sharps bins fall outside of our remit.
- Medical centres
- GP’s surgeries
- Cosmetic surgeries
- Sharps bins
Sharps and needle disposal FAQ's
We have put together some resources and FAQs to help answer any questions you may have around the topic of needle and sharps disposal.

What is the first thing to do if you have a needle stick injury?
The government approved HSE (Health and Safety Executive) provide all the information you’ll need on this topic here. The important points are to; encourage the wound to bleed gently, wash the wound with soap under running water and then seek immediate medical help.
What are the different types of sharps?
Sharp waste includes but isn’t necessarily limited to:

What happens to sharp waste?
Due to the hazardous nature of sharps the resulting waste will need to be destroyed. Sharps pose a risk of physical harm but can also carry contagious diseases. Many disposal sites will incinerate sharps waste as there is no point trying to reclaim materials from it.
What are the sharp instruments regulations?
The sharps instruments regulations 2013 are applied mainly in healthcare settings so won’t typically be the jobs we will be able to help with. Even so, you can read more about them here. Topics covered include how you should try to minimise your sharps waste by only using sharp instruments when absolutely necessary.
