Sharps (the industry name for sharp items such as needles and blades) are very common in both public and private areas, and should always be treated as high-risk items and considerable health hazards.

Cleaning sharps up as soon as possible is imperative, and Safelec can offer a safe and controlled removal service for all sharp objects, including used needles, syringes and razor blades. These items can potentially carry harmful diseases, which means that they must be removed by qualified professionals and disposed of properly.

The items we collect are disposed of in line with all current legislation to ensure that no one is harmed. It is very important that they are not disposed of with domestic waste; a non-specialist handling these risks puncture wounds and possible infection for themselves and others.

With our sharps removal service, we also carry out a complete decontamination of the area surrounding the item to ensure that you are left with a safe and clean environment.


Please contact us straight away if you locate any of the following items:

  • Syringes/Needles
  • Blades from razors and knives
  • Broken glass contaminated with bodily fluids
  • Any other sharp item that you feel poses a threat to public safety
