Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Barnet


Nestled in between Hertfordshire, Harrow, Brent, Camden, Enfield and Haringey, Barnet is London’s second largest borough, its name derived from the Old English bærnet meaning "land cleared by burning".


However, its historical roots date back much further… Archeologists discovered evidence of 1st century Roman pottery manufacturing at Brockley Hill and 3rd and 4th century Roman coins were unearthed at Burnt Oak. Barnet is a popular province for those with young families or older couples looking to retreat from the hustle and bustle of London, thanks to its 200 parks, nature reserves and open spaces, not to mention it has the second highest tree population in the greater London area. It’s also home to one very special tree ‘The Totteridge Yew’, considered sacred by the Druids and still standing 2000 years on. While Barnet might not be the most bustling of all the boroughs, it’s well connected to many of the Northern Line train stations making travel into central London easy and there is still plenty to see and do locally.


The traditional Bull theatre and the Artsdepot; a superb arts centre featuring 2 theatres, a gallery and a bar constantly have a range of performances and acts, post show it’s hard not to find something delicious in one of the many cosy gastropubs, featuring local and traditional food and ales. Need a little retail therapy? Barnet is home to London’s first American-style shopping mall. Opening in 1967, you’re spoiled for choice with over 120 specialty stores and a load of places to eat. Looking for something a little more unique? Spires Shopping Centre or the small high streets in Totteridge and Hadley won’t disappoint. Barnet ticks all the boxes… Greenery, close to London, high performing schools and healthcare to match, making this borough one of the best.




A total healthcare waste management partner that Barnet can trust


We've supported the healthcare community with compliant waste disposal for over thirty years – and we’re not slowing down any time soon. All those years ago, we established ourselves with a single product, the Sharpsmart reusable sharps container, and a customer-centric approach. We have grown and innovated further to provide a variety of clinically designed medical waste containers for UK facilities.

We know through research that healthcare waste management has a clinical impact on staff and patient safety – which is why we pride ourselves on solutions that have inbuilt features to protect you and reduce infection risk during disposal. However, our dedication to your safety and waste optimization doesn’t stop there. Other ways we help you manage infection risk and waste reduction are through the use of:

  • Electronic Waste Categorisation | Easy segregation at point-of-disposal
  • Training and Education | Providing colour-coded posters, labels and online training that supports frontline clinical staff in correct waste handling
  • Safety-Engineered containers | Designed for security (no medications theft), and safety with overfill protection (no sharps injuries)   
  • Integrated Storage Solutions | Carts, Wall Mounting and container housings that optimise limited dock space
  • Waste Reduction Solutions | Through audits, and technology like our Vacsmart system, we not only reduce waste volumes but reduce overall costs
  • Audits and KPI management | We hold ourselves accountable to results


We take the guesswork out of Pharmaceutical Waste Management

This is undoubtedly one of the most complex waste streams a clinician must deal with. However, you are not alone! Sharpsmart is fully equipped to help guide you on proper pharmaceutical waste management, correct container usage, and educational material for your staff. Not to mention our leakproof and impenetrable pharmaceutical waste containers ensure the utmost compliance and safety for all during disposal. Some of the pharma waste streams provide solutions for are:
