Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Bradford


Bradford might be small, but it sure is mighty! Whether you’re a Bradford City AFC supporter, classic literature lover or history buff, this city has something for everyone, offering a unique taste of traditional Yorkshire life. 


Three of the world’s most famous literary sisters, the Brontes are worshipped in this northern English province. The Bronte Parsonage Museum is located right in the heart of the city to honour Charlotte, Emily and Anne who are celebrated for writing classics such as Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and Agnes Grey, but their love for literature doesn’t end there. The Bradford Literature Festival takes place annually, with over 300 events across 10 days, paying homage to modern names and faces in literature across the country.

Bradford is also famous for its iconic Victorian/neo-Gothic architecture, which can be admired in buildings such as the Alhambra, the 3rd oldest theatre in Europe and St George’s Hall where artists like David Bowie, Queen, Harry Houdini and Charles Dickens have taken it’s stage.

Art lovers flock to Cartwright Hall, which oozes decadence with its baroque style architecture. The gallery opened in 1904 and holds some of the most beautiful pieces of 19th and 20th century art, including works by Francisco Goya, William Blake, Andy Warhol and David Hockney.

There is something that Bradfordonians enjoy more than a riveting read, opulent architecture and beautiful art. Named the Curry Capital of Britain for 5 consecutive years, the locals just love a good tikka. And, we take our healthcare just as seriously as our Indian cuisine.


Bradford Healthcare Waste Management made simple.


You may know Sharpsmart as “the little yellow sharps container” – we have made quite a name for ourselves by the revolutionary Sharpsmart container that has driven higher reductions in needlestick injuries globally than any other container system. But… you may be surprised to know that we do a whole lot more than sharps containers!


At Sharpsmart we not only have the capacity and expertise to collect, transport and treat all clinical waste streams (this includes pharmaceutical waste, anatomical waste, cytotoxic waste, and for many UK hospitals and NHS partners, total waste management), but we also partner to deliver significant reductions in waste volumes, plastic, and overall environmental impact. Accompanying our clinical waste collection, disposal and waste treatment services, we “work within your four walls” to deliver solutions that can consistently deliver optimised waste volumes and costs. These include:

  • Our unique Verify app. A quick reference digital tool for quickly identifying which item goes into which waste stream.
  • Waste Audits. Assessing needs and ongoing performance of waste segregation. Providing corrective actions to optimise costs and compliance risks
  • Clinical waste Training. An array of educational materials is available to our customers to train clinical and frontline staff, in the form of posters, e-learning and on-site training.
  • Vacsmart. A unique technology that vacuum seals contaminated wastes and ensures outbreak containment  
  • Tracsmart. Through mobile scanning technology, we can report on any waste containerisation that falls outside of compliance, environmental and cost parameters.


Sharps, Offensive Waste and Clinical Waste is just the start

How do we optimise clinical waste costs in hospitals and medical clinics?

We start with understanding the unique needs of your healthcare facility. What wastes do you generate? How are your staff trained to segregate? What storage capacity do you have for clinical waste or sharps containers? Do you have any compliance risks with pharmaceutical waste? What is important to you in healthcare waste management? From here, we can engage our clinical trained staff to conduct audits and assessments on your facility that helps us to understand how we can change staff behaviours, reduce waste volumes and determine service or waste pickup frequencies that optimise your facility costs and efficiencies. In a nutshell… it’s not a “one size fits all” approach.


Beyond our excellent service, you will love our clinical waste containers!

At the forefront of innovation, Sharpsmart is acclaimed for its industry-leading clinically designed sharps and clinical waste containment solutions. Designed around the needs of healthcare, our foot-pedal operated (reducing cross-contamination) hands free containers enable clinicians to dispose of waste without hygiene concerns. Our sharps containers are designed with 13 unique safety features to minimise needlestick injury risk, and our mounting and movement solutions ensure that you can secure a sharps or pharmaceutical waste container on a wall or on a moveable trolley to optimise staff efficiencies. Plus, all of our containers have their own unique bright colours and labels to ensure your staff know exactly what container they’re putting their waste in! We understand that in a fast-paced healthcare environment… it has to be simple to understand!  


Pharmaceutical waste or sharps disposal. It should be easy.

We understand there’s some nefarious “boogie man” connotations around the safe handling and securement of pharmaceutical drugs and medications…. But it shouldn’t be as hard to manage as it’s made out to be. Compliance – it’s on us. Education – it’s on us. Safe waste collections and manifesting – it’s on us. We know this business and we are really excited to drive UK healthcare towards a new standard of operational and safety excellence.

We service locally.


At Sharpsmart, we benchmark ourselves against what we would expect from a service-based business – local support, reliable communication, and a team that understands and can cater for the unique and different needs of healthcare practices. Our clean processing facility in Spennymoor has been servicing hospitals and patient clinics in Bradford for over 15 years and we are proud of the long-standing customer relationships we have built in this time. It is our customers who have taught us how to better understand the needs of healthcare and how we can optimize our business to deliver safety solutions for clinical staff and partner together to reduce environmental impact.

While Sharpsmart started as “that little yellow sharps container company”, we have quickly proven our ability in managing the collection and disposal of all healthcare waste streams with non-incineration treatment technologies that put environment needs first! As well as boasting the second largest treatment and service infrastructure in the United Kingdom, we have a skilled team of drivers, clinically educated account managers and customer excellence staff who are passionate about delivering a service that enhances rather than detracts from patient-care.
