Match Game: Healthcare Waste Containers

The era of dating game shows that begin with potential suitors shadowed behind a screen may be long behind us, but the concept of gaining a quick snapshot of details about your potential partner still entices all. Why not apply the style of the Match Game to your healthcare waste management containers?


Making a decision on which container and service provider best meets your needs can be daunting. So, we’re putting it all out there for you! Below we lay out the main facts about all our reusable healthcare waste containment systems. Take a look and see if you find your match – or rather matches since you most likely have more than one healthcare waste stream that needs safe containment.

Plus, deep down, you kind of want medical waste containers that are as good-looking as they are safe? We created containers that are both safe and attractive.

Alright, step right up and meet the contestants who are vying to increase the safety of your facility and make waste segregation easy through their vivid colors:



The Sharpsmart

Waste Stream: Sharps Waste

Signature color: ivory body and lid or, if the container is in a secure area and the tamper-proof tray isn’t needed, red body with ivory lid.

Sizes available + fill capacity: S14 - 3.7 gal | S22 - 5.8 gal | S32 - 8.5 gal | S64A+ - 16.9 gal
