Sharps disposal – COBA Europe

COBA Europe, manufacturer of Moving Edge safety knives and supplier of Sharpsafe bins, is offering a Sharps Bin Waste Disposal Service to customers who use all brands of safety knives.

The company describes the service as very efficient and safe, and compliant with current hazardous-waste regulations. It is suitable for blades and disposable safety knives.

Customers can order Sharpsafe bins in a variety of sizes online at where there are special instructions if COBA is required to dispose of the bins when full.

All the bins have a unique serial number, which is entered into COBA’s logging system for full traceability during the bin’s lifecycle. Once full, the non-returning lids are clicked down and the customer returns the bin back to COBA using the Freepost service. 

On receipt of the full bin, COBA issues the customer with a Waste Transfer Certificate, which is signed and returned as a record of the transaction.

For further information, visit or call COBA on 0116 240 1099.
