Abstract: A receptacle for the deposit, storage and ultimate disposal of disposable medical implements includes a containment member for storing a plurality of implements and a top assembly securable to the containment member for forming the top portion of the receptacle. The top assembly includes an opening for receiving implements, a guide member depending angularly downwardly from one edge of the opening and a back-drop/stop member depending downwardly from the opposite side of the opening, with the distal edges of the back-drop/stop member and guide member defining a slot-like gap wide enough to permit implements of predetermined size to pass in a horizontal orientation into the containment portion. In one embodiment, a closure member is pivotally mounted to the top member, preferably, integrally with the top member, by a reduced thickness web which forms a "living hinge" attachment.
