      What Are Sharps?

      “Sharps” is a medical term for devices with sharp points or edges that can puncture or cut skin. Sharps are used for medical conditions such as diabetes, allergies, HIV/AIDS, MS, osteoporosis, psoriasis, blood clotting disorders, cancer, arthritis, hepatitis and more. They can be used at home, at work and sometimes in New York public restrooms. Due to risk of spreading infection, proper disposal of used sharps is extremely important.
