COVID-19 Vaccine Disposal
Supporting NHS Trusts and Clinics with the collection and disposal of COVID-19 vaccine vials and contaminated sharps
As the industry leader in safety engineered devices for the containment of sharps and pharmaceuticals, we pride ourselves as experts in the safe and compliant management of all vaccines, sharps and pharmaceutical waste. In the last nine months across the United Kingdom we have been ensuring inventory to accommodate the surge of both pharmaceutical and sharps containers required for disposal of COVID-19 vaccines or near-empty sharps as well as strengthening our service infrastructure to effectively respond to, and support any increase in demand.
COVID-19 Vaccine Disposal Management | An Integrated Partnership
An integral part of COVID-19 vaccine administration is not only temperature-controlled storage requirements of non-administered vaccines, but also the safe and compliant disposal of utilised syringes with trace amounts of vaccines, near-empty vials and expired medications. As a full service partner, Sharpsmart manages every aspect of COVID-19 vaccine collection and disposal for UK healthcare organisations, from the provision of industry-leading hands-freesharps and pharmaceutical waste container systems, through to the compliant collection, transport and waste treatment of bulk vaccine supply or contaminated sharps
Understand our Approach to COVID-19 Waste
The Sharpsmart Pharmaceutical container system brings a new standard of clinical security to COVID-19 vaccine vial and residual liquid disposal
Incorrectly disposed or unsecured vaccines and medications can have a detrimental affect on the environment as well as posing extreme risk to people who come into unauthorised contact. Since the onset of the coronavirus in the UK, Sharpsmart has been partnering with NHS trusts and government bodies to facilitate bulk rollout of our Sharpsmart containers at COVID testing sites and vaccination popup facilities.
The Sharpsmart sharps container has been recognised to not only comply with, but exceed government guidelines, positioning it as the safest choice for partially used vials, sharps and COVID vaccine residue. Designed as a hands-free system with inbuilt permanent security locks, anti-shatter and impenetrable plastic, leakproof seals and hands-free design, our purpose-designed pharmaceutical container system eliminates cross-contamination risk and protects clinical staff in COVID-19 vaccine or vial disposal.
