sharps containers and disposal

With sharps disposal, safety always comes first with our comprehensive range of UN-type containers.

When dealing with the hazards of used injecting equipment, it is essential that safety is not compromised in any way and that’s why we only supply the best quality sharps containers which meet with BSI and UN-type approval.

At Select Environmental Services, we offer a complete range of one-trip sharps containers from 0.5 to 22 litres capacity. Our preferred brand-leading Sharpak range features a patented Visilock final closure mechanism which delivers extra security and peace of mind. In addition we also offer wall brackets, trolleys and fully enclosed sharps container holders for the Sharpak range.
