Medical waste containers ensure proper segregation and labeling of medical waste. Infectious medical waste can include sharps, which with proper segregation from other medical waste, can be easily labeled by the generator at the point of generation (e.g., laboratory, patient exam rooms,...).

Infectious waste bags and sharps disposal containers are labeled to allow proper waste disposal, a simple and easy process that makes it safe for workers to dispose of medical waste products.
