Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Bath
Considered a historical jewel in the UK’s crown, Bath is a city like no other. Snuggly surrounded by high limestone slopes and steeped in history, it’s the only UK city to be designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
‘Aquae Sulis’ was established by the Romans around 43 AD thanks to its natural thermal springs, which today serve as a living, breathing look into life 2000 years ago. Over the years more than 10 000 Roman coins, a skeleton and the bronze head of the goddess Minerva have been recovered and now sit on display in its museum. The entire city pays homage to some of history’s most significant periods. Still standing from the middle ages you can see the real life ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ perched on the west façade of the stunning gothic Bath Abbey.
Preserved Georgian architecture at its finest can be admired when visiting The Royal Crescent, taking a stroll down Bath Street, passing by Circus (which has almost the same diameter as its neighbouring Stonehenge) and the delightful Pulteney Bridge, said to be modelled off Florence’s Ponte Vecchio, with local retailers still open for business. It’s no wonder Janeites flock here to retrace the steps of their literary heroine, who drew inspiration for novels such as Pride and Prejudice from Somerset’s largest city.
In more recent times, whilst its manufacturing industry has declined, the city is a growing hub of software and publishing companies as well as the creative arts and home to over 100 000 Bathonians, who value healthcare just as much as their history.
Bath's Leading Pharmaceutical and Clinical waste experts
As the only clinically-focused healthcare waste management company in the UK, we're passionate about clinical waste safety and its impact on the environment
Sharpsmart’s story began with the innovation of the world’s first reusable safety-designed sharps container, and from there has matured to be one of the world’s leading healthcare service brands focused on bringing a clinical focus to healthcare waste management. As well as managing hospital waste contracts for some of Britain’s leading hospitals, Sharpsmart also provides clinical waste services for pharmacies, laboratories and primary care facilities. Our point of difference is that unlike traditional waste management companies, we start with understanding how we can reduce your waste, not increase your costs!
Clinical Waste Management Services we provide (collection and treatment) include:
Reusable safety-engineered sharps containers
Surgical device and metal waste recycling
Offensive, Anatomical and Clinical Waste management
Cytotoxic waste and Pharmaceutical waste disposal
Dental and hazardous waste solutions
You’re probably thinking “there’s other companies that do this…” and you would be right, there are clinical waste management companies that will provide dock-to-destruction waste pickups and like us, some may even be local to Bath, but none are quite like Sharpsmart – here’s why…
Sharpsmart radically transforms the traditional model of Clinical Waste management
We implement healthcare waste reduction strategies and solutions like our Vacsmart system to reduce costs and landfill impact
We provide “safest in the world” reusable containers that reduce plastic and drive sustainability goals
We deliver Clinical Waste Education to upskill clinical staff on best-practice safety and waste segregation
We hold ourselves accountable to waste reduction outcomes through Audits and KPI management
We have THE BEST people who truly know their stuff. Just wait until you meet them!
We offer disposal and treatment simplicity in clinical waste management.
Our small beginnings started with our owner driving a truck, cleaning containers, visiting hospitals, engaging clinicians and small business owners and understanding what was meaningful to them. These interactions formed our focus of simplifying waste management services so that our customers could focus on patient care. Primary care facilities simply don’t have the time to be training staff, understanding stringent pharmaceutical and medication waste management regulations, or worrying if their waste company is going to turn up at the scheduled time and bring the correct waste containers. This is our job, and we take the responsibility seriously. In partnering with you to drive the most efficient and cost effective results, we:
Understand what waste streams you are generating
Implement training and waste education to optimize compliance
Recommend the right sized containers (and bin locations) that will deliver the best segregation results
Implement. We set KPI’s. We monitor, we audit and we hold ourselves accountable to results.
For us, every customer interaction matters. In healthcare it’s the patient experience that drives you, and for Sharpsmart, it’s the protection of clinicians and simplification of services that drives us.
Sharpsmart understands the needs of healthcare facilities in Bath.
