Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Cardiff


Sports fan, history buff, foodie or shopaholic, there is something for everyone in the ‘Castle Capital’ of Wales. Cardiff or Caerdydd to the locals is one of the UK’s most affluent cities and only a short journey by train west of London. 


Step back 2000 years with a visit to Cardiff Castle or one of the city’s 600 other castles such as Castell Coch, which will immediately conjure images of fairy-tale maidens and knights in shining armour. For sports fans, Millennium Stadium, officially known as Principality Stadium since 2016 needs no introduction – home to Welsh Football and Rugby teams, as well as serving as a venue for the British Speedway Grand Prix. Looking for a little more culture? Catch a show at the stunning Wales Millennium Centre, made entirely of local wood, metal, slate and glass. For more local delights take a stroll through Bute Park and Arboretum, the stunning parkland that forms the ‘green heart’ of Cardiff.

Need some retail therapy? No other city in the UK has a higher concentration of Edwardian, Victorian and contemporary indoor shopping arcades. Discover everything from the world’s oldest record store – Spiller Records to Madam Fromage teeming with local Welsh meats and cheese. The live music scene is never quiet with resident institutes such as Barfly, Clwb Ifor Bach, The Globe and The Coal Exchange pumping each night or wind down on the waterfront of Mermaid Quay.

Creative, lively, colourful and culturally diverse, Cardiffians may have a history steeped in legend, but their approach to healthcare is futuristic with programs created to brighten hospitals with music and colour from local artists.


Cardiff Clinical Waste Management… done differently


From the Southern Arc to Pontcanna, Sharpsmart have been influential ambassadors of a new way of managing healthcare waste in Cardiff for the last 15+ years. Pontprennau, Old St Mellons, S. Fagions and Tongwynlais all share in our rich but young history of working with hospitals, pharmaceutical manufacturers and primary care facilities to bring a new level of safety and sustainability to clinical waste management. Whether it be dramatic reductions in needlestick injuries, plastic, waste volumes, or infection risk… we have achieved some incredible results through our clinical approach.   


The basics of what we deliver to Cardiff Hospitals and Health Clinics

  • Sharps, Cytotoxic, Anatomical and Pharmaceutical waste disposal and treatment
  • Offensive and Infectious waste segregation in hospitals
  • Audits and clinical waste training to drive better segregation and cost management
  • Scheduling and waste pickups for all sized healthcare facilities
  • Clinical partners that can design waste management programmes to suit your needs


Clinically designed solutions for infectious and non-infectious waste streams

Does it belong in an orange bag, a yellow bag or a yellow and black tiger-striped bag? It’s sometimes a little confusing. We have made it our goal to make clinical waste management SIMPLE! Clear colour-coded bags and containers, labelling that distils complex regulations into human terms, and education and training material that makes it easy to quickly identify waste on the go at point of disposal. Our goal is to help Cardiff healthcare facilities reduce their waste volumes, reduce their risk exposure, and overall reduce their clinical waste management costs!




Oncology waste solutions for Cardiff Cancer Centres

One of the many specialist healthcare verticals we work with is cancer centres, mitigating the potentially hazardous nature of cytotoxic and cytostatic waste with our clinically designed containers and compliance solutions. Sharpsmart’s bag to bedside system has proven to be an integral aide of managing risk of infection and delivering effective segregation in cancer centres. With a suite of educational posters, labels and colour-coded segregation aides, Sharpsmart has a strong track history of helping oncology centres to improve their waste segregation, labour efficiencies and overall costs.  


In every disposable cytotoxic waste container, 33% of the total plastic volume is the container itself! Sharpsmart’s reusable cytotoxic waste container is proven to be able to be used up to 500 times with a lifespan of 15+ years. It’s not hard to do the maths… this is a lot of plastic being diverted from landfill!! To learn more about our oncology waste solutions, visit our cancer centre solutions page here.
