Eurocare provides a specialist sharps disposal services to allow you to safely dispose of all medical sharps including hypodermic syringes and scalpels.
Sharps must be disposed of safely at all times. There is clearly a foreseeable risk that used syringes may be left or hidden in areas such as public toilets in stores. This presents a danger to the general public and a danger that any business needs to guard against to prevent injury and potential legal action.
