We are the only company to offer a complete end-to-end service for sharps management, from sharps bin collection and transportation right through to treatment at our licenced facilities.
Stericycle’s Bio Systems containers are reusable UN-approved puncture-resistant containers that can be used up to 600 times after washing and disinfection, as opposed to single-use containers that are disposed after just one use.
We ensure that clinical waste is removed from site in a timely and efficient manner.
Once collected, the full sharps containers are taken to the Stericycle treatment facility where they are opened, emptied and disinfected using an automated wash-line that features state-of-the-art robotics.
The disinfected containers are meticulously inspected and then reassembled before they are returned to the hospital for reuse. The clean replacement sharps containers are supplied on a daily basis, which means there is no waste build up around the site.
The Stericycle Bio Systems service significantly contributes to your sustainability measures. We are proud to operate a completely self-sufficient wash-line at our premises, with the wash line and state-of-the-art robotics system powered by our on-site Energy from Waste incinerator.
