Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Crawley


Approximately halfway between London and Brighton you’ll discover Crawley, a large town in West Sussex offering a colourful agenda of fun activities. Visit former country estate Tilgate Park to get back to nature, or even the Crawley Millennium Greenway for a leisurely bike ride. 


There are plenty of other magnificent gardens to draw in visitors as well, like old English estates Nymans and Wakehurst adorned with romantically dilapidated houses. The town’s natural wonders don’t end there, with Crawley also positioned on the western edge of High Weald, a grand sandstone ridge twining down the coast. Though it was known as more of a small market town prior to the mid-20th century, Crawley now flourishes as a bustling centre, likely in part to its fortuitous location near Gatwick Airport (one of Britain’s busiest).

Whether traversing through or deciding to stay a while, visitors won’t ever be bored with the array of offerings the town showcases - from one of the best golf courses in the country, to the spectacular show productions at The Hawth Theatre, blink and you’ll miss something incredible and unique. History lovers won’t be disappointed with the Crawley Museum, an exploration of the town’s old archaeological discoveries as well as modern crafts and a journey through the origin story and development of Crawley. Pay attention and you just might catch a glimpse of a sword from the Bronze Age!

Despite the hubbub of the bubbling town, Crawley remains focused on prioritising exceptional healthcare.

Healthcare waste disposal solutions that make green sustainable sense

Over the years we have worked with multiple healthcare facilities in facilitating before-and-after studies to show the dramatic impact of their conversion from disposable sharps containers to reusable sharps containers. One of our studies which was published in a notable scientific journal, narrated the story of a 400 bed acute Trust in Bournemouth that achieved an 86% carbon emissions reduction with the introduction of our Sharpsmart reusable sharps container system (Read the full study here). Most noteworthy results included:

  • Reduction of 157 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year
  • Elimination of 465,000 disposable sharps containers (purchase, treatment and landfill = eliminated!!!) over 10 years
  • Reduction in sharps injuries, staff labour and overall costs


Another study here showed 10 UK hospitals adopting the Sharpsmart sharps container system and achieving:

  • 91% reduction in C02 emissions
  • 32% reduction of waste in the sharps waste stream
  • Compliance with the NHS Safe Management of Healthcare Waste Guidelines (HTM 07-10)



We own the cradle to grave journey of the safe and compliant disposal of your sharps, infectious, and pharmaceutical waste.

Our sharps, clinical and pharmaceutical waste containers are colour-coded for easy recognition, and designed with over 20 safety features that ensure the security of your waste, and protection of your staff across all aspects of waste handling, from disposal through to container movement and transport.
