Cytotoxic Waste Disposal
What is Cytotoxic Waste?
Cytotoxic waste is waste associated with cytotoxic drugs which contain chemicals toxic to the cells. This includes materials, equipment, and residue that are contaminated by cytotoxic drugs.
Reliable and simple solutions for Cytotoxic Waste Management
With the safest reusable containment system for Cytotoxic and Cytostatic Waste in the United Kingdom that minimise cross-contamination and infection risk, more healthcare facilities are looking to Sharpsmart for safe, sustainable and cost-effective cytotoxic sharps and waste disposal solutions.
Reduce Costs and Environmental Impact of cytotoxic waste disposal
Our range of containers for cytotoxic / cytostatic waste are the most secure and "best-looking" in the UK. Safety-engineered for the collection of sharps and soft cytotoxic waste, each security-locked container is designed to protect staff and patients from cross-contamination and content retrieval. Falling under EWC code 18 02 07, cytotoxic medicines must be segregated from other pharmaceuticals and be securely disposed of. The classes of medicines in this classification include cancer chemotherapeutics, antiviral medicines, ciclosporin medicines and certain hormonal preparations including prostaglandins and androgens.
With mobile point-of-use segregation of sharps and soft waste contaminated with cytotoxic agents achieved through our specialist containers and mobile accessories, we ensure that your facility achieves compliance in correct waste disposal, and drives efficiency and cost-reduction through labour utilisation. Where possible, Sharpsmart opt for alternative green treatment methods and our use of reusable containers dramatically reduces the carbon impact of healthcare facilities managing multiple waste streams.
Safety within the four walls
Our partnership happens WITHIN your facility, not over the phone. We work with your team to determine the most efficient and safe management methodologies for your cytotoxic waste including training, storage and segregation tools, having a complete understanding of your current waste management processes, training capabilities and site restrictions. Our Tracsmart Waste Tracking tool ensures container placement, movement and segregation are optimised, producing data on container fill efficiency and insights to drive better segregation. As your full healthcare waste partner, we provide total transparency through the service and disposal process to uphold your cradle to grave responsibilities and, through our licensing and compliance expertise, safeguard the safety risk and regulatory responsibility of all sized healthcare facilities.
