SRCL understands the complexities surrounding sharps waste segregation and consideration the management of sharps disposal requires.
We manage the sharps disposal from clinical environments, laboratories, training centres, independent businesses and health and wellbeing facilities.
SRCL collects and treats:
- Phlebotomy sharps
- Medicinally contaminated sharps
- Cytotoxic and Cytostatic medicinally contaminated sharps
- Sharps waste from training establishments
Our nationwide presence of alternative treatment and incineration facilities and a comprehensive fleet gives us unmatched reach and expertise when it comes to the disposal of sharps waste. We can supply UN-approved containers of various sizes with colour coded lids as well as the proprietary Bio Track system to aid with tracking to ward level.
For customers seeking a proactive approach, we provide a scheduled service for regular collections. Where volumes are low, an on-call service is provided with less frequent collections.
SRCL also provides regular legislative updates for all customers and provides training on waste awareness and site audits.
We work directly with waste managers and clinical staff to provide advice and training for appropriate handling, containment, transportation and disposal of sharps waste. This approach supports our customers at the point of waste production and helps ensure Health Technical Memorandum (HTM) 07-01standards are met and by all levels of clinical and other site based staff.
SRCL is much more than just a supplier to us…we have developed a strong partnership, working jointly on solving service issues and implementing innovative solutions.

As part of our Sustainability Week at Stericycle, we caught up with our Environmental Manager, Elaine Casey to find out more about her key responsibilities and we asked her to share her top tips for working more sustainably.
In this blog instalment, Alan McIver discusses sustainability in waste management and provides an insight into some of the great work Stericycle is doing, as our first Sustainability Week draws to a close.
