We are a licensed medical waste contractor for the proper management of medical sharps, needles, and syringes. Our innovative sharps disposal service ensures timely pickups and transparent pricing.


“The Orthopaedic Center has 21 locations across Alabama and Tennessee, and TriHaz Solutions has managed our medical waste for several years. They are very responsive – “Johnny-on-the-spot” whenever I need to add a service or have a question! Before TriHaz, we had to use several vendors for our different locations, and with their bundled services, we can include secure document destruction. This is much more efficient, with one pickup and one invoice. Plus, we have no worries about compliance since our waste is being properly transported, treated, and disposed.”

How Do You Dispose Of Single Needles?

To dispose of single needles safely, they should never be recapped, bent, broken, or manipulated by hand. Single needles must be immediately placed into a sharps disposal container. These containers are puncture-resistant, leak-proof on the sides and bottom, and have a tight-fitting, puncture-resistant lid to prevent needle sticks and contamination. Once the container is about three-quarters full, it should be sealed and disposed of according to local regulations, which may involve returning it to a pharmacy, a designated collection site, or using a mail-back program.

How Are Sharps Bins Disposed Of?

Sharps bins, or containers, are disposed of by specialized medical waste management companies. Once the bin is about three-quarters full, it should be securely closed and labeled following local health department or waste disposal agency guidelines. The disposal process typically involves incineration or autoclaving (steam sterilization) to ensure that all hazardous materials are safely destroyed. The specific disposal method may vary based on local regulations and the policies of the waste management service.

How Do You Dispose Of Syringes And Needles?

Syringes and needles should be disposed of by placing them directly into a designated sharps disposal container immediately after use. These containers are specifically designed to be puncture-resistant and have a tight-fitting lid to safely contain sharps and prevent injury or contamination. Do not attempt to separate the needle from the syringe before disposal. Once the container is filled to the designated level, usually three-quarters full, it should be sealed and disposed of in accordance with local regulations. This might include returning the container to a designated drop-off location, a healthcare provider, or using a mail-back disposal program.
