Sharps Needles, Syringes recycling and disposal

The correct disposal of this waste type is extremely important. Many people rely on needles, lancets or syringes to manage medical conditions and to maintain their own health or that of a family member. Injecting equipment is also often used by pet and livestock owners or vets. 

For health and safety reasons, sharps must never be placed in kerbside recycling, garbage or garden organics bins. It poses a serious, sometimes life-endangering risk to sorting staff.

Sharps must be secured in an Australian Standard sharps container that is puncture resistant. Contact your local council or pharmacy for authorised sharps collection points.

Wanless provides services for the disposal of medical waste and clinical waste from sharps, syringe disposal, pathology waste, pharmaceutical disposal, infectious medical and clinical waste, and photographic waste.

We’re more than waste management

A staggering 9 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the world’s oceans each year, and land-based waste is the greatest polluter. This ocean debris affects about 700 marine species, some of which are now endangered.

To help turn the tide on plastic pollution, Wanless eco(logical) is investing in Australia’s oceans.
