"Sustainability is Incredible..."
We've used Sharpsmart for over four years. The traceable sustainability of the Sharpsmart containers is incredible.

For non-healthcare organisations, clinical waste and sharps management can sometimes be regarded as scary unchartered territory. As experts in this space with 30+ years experience behind us, we’re committed to making it easy. Working with Customs, Border Authorities, Police forces, Fire services, the Ministry of Defense and Airports, Sharpsmart's clinical waste management expertise is scaleable to domestic and national service.
Waste optimisation and a safety-led approach to clinical waste management should be the minimum standard irrespective of facility or organisation type. Working with NHS and multiple Government bodies and Local Authorities, we have developed clinical, pharmaceutical and total waste solutions that perfectly intercept the service and procurement needs of the public sector. This coupled with our strong routes to market via healthcare waste frameworks, guarantees both a compliant and streamlined procurement exercise.
As a company we have always been focused on the simple transfer of knowledge, i.e. how can we make healthcare waste (complex and regulated) very easy to understand and execute. Our expertise in managing and handling high risk waste is easily transferrable and is backed by a comprehensive blended-learning education offering; we ensure that anyone working within the public sector can utilise Sharpsmart to provide safe, sustainable and cost effective clinical waste solutions.
With over 5 years of research invested into its design and engineering, the Sharpsmart collector is manufactured to precise tolerances to ensure that all safety mechanisms are functional on each and every collector. Fitted with an engineered maximum sensitivity safety tray, users are protected in hands-free disposal of sharps and needles. The Sharpsmart is more than just a sharps container, it is an engineered safety device proven to dramatically reduce needlestick injury rates, minimise infection transfer, and substantially improve the risk profile of all organisations that generate and handle healthcare waste.
Sharpsmart’s innovative green treatment technologies and overall approach to segregation and waste management sets us apart as a sustainability focused organisation. However not only do we want to minimise our burden on the environment, we also want to ensure that the experience our customers have with Sharpsmart is seamless, reliable and expertise-led. The ways we achieve this are:
