Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Gloucester


Even those who have never visited Gloucester may still recognise the town. With Roman roots, Gloucester boasts an impressive array of historical architecture and is a complete visual treat, making it an easy pick for many Hollywood film settings.


From Harry Potter and Sherlock, to Alice in Wonderland: Through The Looking Glass, many a movie star has spent time at the inland port, seated at the beginning of England’s West Country. Perhaps the town’s most iconic landmark is the Gloucester Cathedral, whose first iterations were seen as early as 670. It’s a stunning assemblage of English gothic features, including the Great East Window and Edward II’s historic tomb.

The cathedral tells an illustrious story of Gloucester’s past. For those wishing to indulge in more history, Gloucester offers an array of museums for visitors to peruse from the Museum of Gloucester, the Gloucester Life Museum and the National Waterways Museum. Of course, such a high volume of learning can take its mental toll - why not relax at the Highnam Court Gardens on the outskirts of town? Featuring stunning waterfalls, a wisteria walk and gardens-within-the-garden, the estate takes visitors on a serene journey through nature.

Perhaps a modern-day twist is on the cards - in which case, shopping at Gloucester Quays will satisfy your appetite. Part of the shopping centre is housed in old brick warehouses on the local docks, meaning that Gloucester’s history still manages to weave its way into the current day image of the town. History and architectural brilliance aside, there’s one thing that Gloucester remains vigilant on - and that’s their quality healthcare.



Gloucester Waste Management for Nursing and Care Homes

Senior Living Communities and Care Homes are just one type of patient-care facility that Sharpsmart UK is able to partner with in Gloucester for clinical waste management services. We are proud to serve some of Britain’s leading NHS hospitals, laboratories, nursing and care homes and universities in total waste management services and what we call our “within the four walls” radicalisation of waste handling processes and results. What does this mean you may ask? As a partner we don’t want to just “pick up from the dock and charge” for waste, we want to drive safety, environmental, waste minimisation and cost outcomes BEFORE waste reaches the loading dock through a partnership-based approach. Some of the unique drivers of our partnership approach include:

  • We tailor pickup schedules, waste container sizes and education offering to suit your facility’s unique needs
  • Reusable medical waste solutions that dramatically reduce plastic from landfill by eliminating sharps bin disposal, and reduce costs and CO2 burden
  • Education that enhances correct waste segregation outcomes
  • Waste audits that monitor results and help correct waste segregation behaviour
  • The establishment of KPI’s and business reviews to hold ourselves accountable to results
  • One-of-its-kind patented treatment technology that reduces environmental burden

Sharpsmart’s solutions have been time-tested for over 15 years to deliver results. As the only clinical waste company backed by science (some of our microbiological studies have been published in the world’s leading medical journals including the journal of infection control), and driven to deliver solutions that lead the industry in safety and sustainability (both in the clinical environment and in logistics, robotic container washing and treatment) – we are committed to driving UK healthcare to a safer benchmark of healthcare waste management.



A Unique Approach to Infection Risk Minimisation 

The lack of infection control products and processes in the UK healthcare waste industry amplifies infection risks to carers and healthcare workers in what should be the "cleanest", most "hygienic" and "contamination free" place on earth - a patient-care and healing environment. At Sharpsmart, we start with the safety and protection of frontline healthcare workers and deliver waste containment solutions that make “clinical sense”.


Our solutions to combat infection risk include:

  • Point-of-use waste disposal system for segregating waste at the point waste is generated, eliminating need for secondary touches 
  • Hands-free Sharpsmart sharps container system clinically proven to reduce needlestick injuries and occupational risk
  • No more disposing of sharps containers – enter reusables!  
  • Container mounting and movement systems that eliminate cross-contamination and hand-contact with waste bins or waste bags 
  • Collection, Storage and transport solutions that ensure clinical waste containers are never exposed to ground cross-contamination 
  • Our industry-leading Vacsmart system that vacuum seals contaminated wastes and ensures outbreak containment  
  • Robotic container washing and sanitisation process that achieves a 6log bacterial load reduction, the highest in the industry! 



Establishing your facility’s clinical waste management needs

When you get to talk to one of our friendly team, they’ll guide you through some simple questions to better understand your needs. If you want to be super prepared, here are a few hints of what they may ask you!

  • How many patient/treatment rooms do you have in your facility and what waste streams are generated in each?
  • Do you know the average monthly volume of sharps, clinical waste or pharmaceutical waste generated each month and the frequency of pickup (this can typically found on your monthly invoice if you already have a clinical waste vendor)
  • What matters most to you in the management of your healthcare waste? Is it safety? Ease and efficiency? Environmental impact considerations? Compliance? Aesthetics and cleanliness of containers/bins? Waste volume and cost reductions? Or simplicity of contract and clear pricing? We can do it all, but we want to focus on what’s most important to you and your staff.

We service locally.


Family owned and operated, we are privileged that the service focused DNA of our founder, Dan Daniels, is still a driving force in how we serve healthcare. Having the firsthand experience of driving trucks, cleaning containers, and changing from overalls to a suit and tie to go from “operator” to “salesman” in the back of his service van, Dan injects into the business a humility and focus of keeping the clinical environment and staff and patient safety “the main thing” in everything we do.


Sharpsmart have two local healthcare waste processing and treatment facilities servicing the western shires of London, one in Stoke and one in Reading, enabling service agility that few clinical waste disposal companies can boast; we opt for alternative non-incinerable treatment technologies that reduce environmental impact, and we deploy a local customer service network that ensures our customers’ needs are catered for in real time.
