Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Liverpool


Where can you find the signature Scouse accent, lavish architecture and a good old beef stew? Liverpool of course! Famed as a Port city and the birthplace of the famous rock group the Beatles, today Liverpool is home to Liverpool and Everton Football Clubs and, in 2008 was awarded the title of European Capital of Culture.  


Any Liverpudlian will tell you that Liverpool holds the world title as the Capital of Pop, gifting us artists such as the Atomic Kittens and Heidi Range from the Sugababes, as well as the ledgendary members of The Beatles; John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison. However, it was Gerry and the Pacemakers cover of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” that became etched in the city’s culture. The song being adopted in the mid-60’s as an anthem sung by the Liverpool F.C. crowd before every game.

Liverpool is also the second most filmed city in the UK with popular movies like Sherlock Holmes, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Peaky Blinders and Captain America: The First Avenger, all being shot in the city. So, what is something these films have in common? They showcase Liverpool’s breathtaking architecture and scenery. With over 2,500 listed buildings, 250 public monuments and one of the most impressive collections of museums in Europe. The Museum of Liverpool, the UK’s first museum dedicated to the history of a city, is a popular tourist destination as well as the World Museum and Open Eye Gallery.

Liverpool is also home to the historic Liverpool and Manchester Railway. Opened in 1830’s the railway dates back to similar times as the healthcare system in Merseyside.


Delivering Safe and Environmentally Responsible Clinical Waste Disposal Solutions to Liverpudlians

We may not be quite so iconic as the zebra crossing in Abbey road, but when it comes to clinical waste management in Liverpool, we are pretty much the crowd favourites! Safety-focused, passionate about the environment, and delivering local expertise with heaps of personality – Sharpsmart is a clinical waste management partner with a difference. Let’s face it, our industry is not glamorous… but it’s so necessary, and in performing a vital function of support to healthcare, we want to make it as human an experience as we can!


Collection, disposal and treatment of all clinical and pharmaceutical waste streams

So many colours, so many bin types, so many changing regulations and so many blogposts on how to safely dispose of a blood contaminated bandage! We know, it can get a little confusing! It’s our goal in life to simplify and provide a simple distinction between fact and fiction. Let’s start with the basic waste streams we manage:

  • Anatomical, offensive waste and clinical waste
  • Pharmaceutical waste and medications disposal
  • The safest reusable sharps containers in the world (we’re serious…!)
  • Cytotoxic waste for cancer centres
  • Total waste management for hospitals (yes… we do it all!)  

There’s also some strange things that will come our way… amalgam, batteries, fluorescent tube recycling, document shredding and lab chemicals, we’re pretty good at handling a wide variety of waste generated out of healthcare environments, but the two things we’re really passionate about is clinical safety and protecting our environment. 


We help you reduce your clinical waste volumes and costs 

Reducing clinical waste volumes and pharmaceutical waste management costs may sound like a cliché marketing statement… except for the fact that we’ve achieved this consistently in partnership many hospitals and primary care facilities in Liverpool over the last 15+ years.
