A 0.3 litre needle and syringe storage and pocket sharps bin, designed by us to MAXIMISE UTILITY for people who inject drugs, and safety for the needle and syringe programme and the wider community.
Puncture resistant and lockable to International Standard 23907-1 (2019), and using significantly less plastic than other 0.25L/0.3L bins.
The Exchange Supplies sharps bin can be used to carry up to 10 x 1ml syringes from the needle exchange and/or protect them in a pack - reducing the bulk by 50%, and removing the most common reason given for not taking a bin - not being able to carry it easily.

When people are ready to use the syringes, they can remove them, place the container on a hard surface, and firmly push the lid to permanently lock it onto the bin. The bin carries 10 x 1ml syringes in their blister packs, and can receive up to 15 x 1ml syringes or 7 x 2ml syringes for return, and safe disposal.
A key feature of our bin is the open aperture so that you:
Don't have to put your fingers near the opening to add syringes (which risks needle stick injury)
Can clearly see the contents, and add more syringes without forcing them
Our bin also:
Has a clear, positive close and lock position;
Cannot be accidentally locked;
Can be unlocked, and re-locked, to add in any extra syringes found; and
Is manufactured exclusively for Exchange Supplies to our exacting requirements by the same local supplier who makes our amp snappers.
This bin is supplied label free — we have a free instruction leaflet available, but everyone knows how bins work, and what to do with them. The addition of messages on the bin labels the owner as a person who injects drugs, and can increase stigma, and reduce the willingness to carry and return sharps disposal bins.
Exchange Supplies is an organisation with our roots in the provision of confidential drug services, and we absolutely understand the need for discretion in the outer packaging of our goods when shipping to individual customers.
If you tick the discreet packaging tick box your order will be shipped in plain packaging, looking just like any other mail order package. There will be no branding, stickers, logos, or stamps on the outside that would enable someone to guess what the contents are. For UK orders we usually use Royal Mail tracked service as this is likely to draw less attention than an orange TNT lorry.
Overseas orders will have a label on the outside containing a customs notification declaring the contents.
Exchange Supplies is an organisation with its foundations in the provision of confidential healthcare to a patient group who care more about their confidentiality than any other - injecting drug users.

We do, of course, collect information about you when you give it to us on the phone or through the website. When placing an order you will be required to supply your credit card or bank details but these will only be stored until your order has been despatched.

We have taken all reasonable care to protect your data and our system. Of course, if someone were to break into our password protected system and steal or corrupt data, that is a criminal act, and they would be liable for their actions and not us.
