Disposing of Medical Waste Safely - with Adams Sanitation!

Why Disposing of Sharps Safely Is So Important!

At Adams Sanitation, we are more than happy to pick up most garbage, refuse, unwanted junk and castaway items without a second thought. Sure, there are some items that are so big, that we need to arrange for a special pickup. But, for the most part, with the exception of dead animal carcasses (it’s happened) if it fits in the trash can, we are going to pick it up and take it to the dump. 

Unfortunately, there are some things that we just can’t pick up – like ammunition – and some items that we ask that you prepare for pickup, so we can keep our employees safe. Sharps (or needles) are one of those items. If you are a diabetic, or regularly have to inject medicine – we want you to be able to give us your medical waste, so that we can dispose of it – we just ask that you follow these steps in order to get rid of the medical waste properly. 

In all of our locations, (this includes our services to Baker, Holt, Dorcas, unincorporated Laurel Hill, Milton, East Milton, Pace, Jay , Chumuckla and Allentown) we ask that you take these three steps to protect our employees. 

How to keep us safe!

  1. Please make sure put your sharps or needles into a safe disposal container (like the ones the FDA recommends) or into a container that is made out of a heavy plastic, like a laundry detergent bottle. 
  2. As a favor to us, please label the container with a warning of some kind (‘Danger: Sharps’ or ‘Warning: Medical Waste’ work well)
  3. Finally, tape closed the top of the receptacle in order to ensure safety. 

As always, we have a fun infographic that helps tell the story!

    Thank you for the awesome job the guys do collecting the trash. People don’t realize how dangerous your job is. Not only what that is in the trash but the vehicles that pass you. They don’t pay attention. Your safety is a Hugh concern to me. Thank you again

    You say how to prepare sharps but I assume once they are prepared you just put the container in with regular garbage?
