Government & Local Authorities

Clinical waste management
should not be daunting. 

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.



How are we different?


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: 


  • Even before we get to a handshake, we ensure that the bidding and procurement process is simple and streamlined.
  • Site audits are completed at every location to ensure that we fully understand your facility’s clinical waste needs and transport or storage considerations that would prove vital to seamless consistent service 
  • Our mobilisation process includes not only the delivery and installation of sharps and clinical waste containers, but also comprehensive staff training to ensure your staff are safely equipped in compliant segregation and disposal methodologies.
  • We provide flexible scheduling options to ensure that our services are complementing the needs of your staff and site.
  • We can develop bespoke education packages to ensure all staff can be trained and certified, and your costs can be reduced by compliant segregation.
  • We comply with HTM 07-01, EPR 5.07 and the carriage of dangerous goods (ADR) regulations. In addition our bulk containers also comply with UN3291.
