Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Eastbourne


For some summertime fun on the south coast, what better destination than Eastbourne? With a history as a trendy tourist hotspot, Eastbourne lives up to its reputation thanks to its stunning countryside, packed event calendar and quaint seafront.


Perhaps its most well-known feature is Beachy Head, the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain. Stand atop its highest point and you can take in its famously beautiful panoramic views, from the Isle of Wight all the way to Dungeness in Kent. Head west to visit Birling Gap, a small - you guessed it - gap in the cliffs, featuring rock pools and fossil hunting. As you wander along the East Sussex coast, you may even come across the iconic Seven Sisters cliff.

When you’ve had enough of the cliffside, Eastbourne has plenty of other fun-in-the-sun activities to offer. Take a stroll down the Eastbourne Pier and stop by one of its tea rooms for a pick me up or go windsurfing at Eastbourne Beach.

For a taste of the arts and culture, the Towner Art Gallery rests not too far from the seafront and displays an impressive array of modern and contemporary art. Featuring artists from Pablo Picasso to Wolfgang Tillmans; the gallery is known for holding one of the best public collections in England’s southeast.

Eastbourne is an ideal getaway spot, but for both holiday-seekers and residents alike, one thing is for sure - the standard of healthcare in Eastbourne remains first class.



Local Clinical Waste Collection Services in Eastbourne 

As locals in Eastbourne, we pride ourselves on providing quality infectious and non-infectious waste collection, transport and treatment solutions that minimise environmental impact.

It is estimated that up to 85% of waste generated by healthcare activities is general, non-hazardous waste, and yet hospitals, Trusts and other patient care facilities alike are often disposing of 25% upwards of their waste as clinical or hazardous waste due to poor segregation practices and lack of education around correct hospital or healthcare waste management. Sharpsmart is positioned as the industry leader of innovation in clinical waste management, offering not only expertise in safety-engineered waste containers and pickup services, but also partnering with healthcare facilities on education, audits and waste/cost-reduction initiatives. 

Our clean processing and high-heat treatment facility in Reading is located just over an hour from Eastbourne, and supports hundreds of small to medium sized healthcare facilities, laboratories and NHS Trusts in managing all healthcare waste streams under the goal of waste volume, risk and cost reduction. Our local team is involved in all of our Eastbourne hospital and clinic accounts - leading education and segregation initiatives to drive lower costs and environmental output, walking facilities to understand the exact needs of product, placement and scheduling, and providing clinical waste and pharmaceutical waste compliance advice in accordance with local transport and waste handling regulations. With local transport, processing and employment - we can deliver the best value, most efficient service and local peace of mind to Eastbourne healthcare facilities. Being local means a lot! It means that we: 

  • Understand local regulations and can provide expert advice and containers specific to your facility's processes, waste volumes and waste types 
  • Can come and meet you! We're in the area, you're not talking to someone over the phone in Scotland! 
  • Can respond quickly. Need an urgent waste pickup service? We can get a truck routed.. with sharps or medical waste containers.. within the blink of an eye 
  • Don't use sub-haulers! We're not trusting your facility to someone else... our customers trust us to manage their risk - and we take that responsibility seriously! 
  • Take customer service and our reputation as an industry expert seriously 




Clinically focused, trustworthy pricing, compliance expertise 


Healthcare's drastically changed landscape over the last 40 years has forced us to imagine what a clinically-focused, infection-control focused healthcare waste alternative would look like, and our results from some of the UK's leading NHS hospitals and trusts are testament to our dedication to think differently in respect to hospital waste management. With an incredible littany of case studies, peer reviewed studies in leading clinical journals and sustainability awards, we're passionate about bringing a new level fo clinical and environmental expertise to healthcare waste management. Our differentiated approach includes:  

  • Industry leading security and safety-designed containers for sharps, offensive waste, clinical waste and pharmaceutical waste
