Our Global Locations


Founded in Australia in 1986, Sharpsmart is now strongly established in six countries with a service model scalable to all sized healthcare facilities. Governed by local, regional and national regulators and industry norms in each country we operate, Sharpsmart have forged a strong credible name in healthcare throughout the United Kingdom, North America, Australia and South Africa for its innovative products, seamless service solutions, and safety/infection risk reduction focus.

Our Treatment Processes

Sharpsmart offer bespoke solutions for each of our customers, each one tailored to their individual needs and goals. When it comes to waste treatment, as we aim to make a difference within the four walls of the hospital we do not operate our own waste treatment facilities in order to work in the best interests of our customers. 

Our Fleet

Sharpsmart has a strong national service fleet. To ensure consistency of customer experience, service expectations and familiarity with customer requirements, most clinical waste pickup/dropoff services are fulfilled by Sharpsmart personnel, and all vehicles are licensed to meet all regulatory requirements. 


Our Clean Processing Facilities

Sustainable Operations

At Sharpsmart, we minimise Greenhouse gases primarily by offering reusable
sharps and clinical waste containment systems that minimise a significant amount of energy
by eliminating the manufacturing, movement, treatment and disposal of disposable containers.
