Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Newcastle


Historical roots run deep in this eclectic city nestled north of London and south of Edinburgh. From the Roman’s first recorded historical settlement, to the powerful Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Northumbria which withstood bloody conflicts with the Danes and the Normans. In the middle ages Henry IV separated it, giving it the new name of Newcastle Upon Tyne.

The city has survived the plague, the English Civil War and played a major role during the Industrial Revolution. Despite its tumultuous history, today Novocastrians are known to live in the friendliest city in the UK. The Geordies love their tea and there are loads of cafes and tea shops in the historic heart of Grainger Town which could have something to do with Grey’s Monument overlooking Monument Metro Station, commemorating the former British PM who abolished slavery and reformed parliament, as well as being the name sake for our favourite morning cuppa.

You’re never short of something to do or see in this city. Stroll through Newcastle Castle, built in 1080 AD it gave the city its name, cross some or all of the 7 bridges, such as the Tyne (which looks like a miniature Sydney Harbour Bridge), catch a match at St James Park, grab a Pease Pudding and Pint or see a show at the Royal Theatre one of the UK’s rare Grade 1 theatres. Feel like a retail fix? There’s Eldon Square Shopping Centre or Fenwick’s flagship store on Northumberland St - home to some of the world’s most luxe designers, while night owls can be found partying into the evening around Bigg Market.

Newcastle is a city where history and the future co-exist. Boasting the UK’s first biotech village “Centre for Life” the health and wellbeing of the city’s residents is paramount and a far cry from its darker past.

Healthcare waste segregation should be simple – and it is with our Verify Waste Identification Tool

We don’t believe any clinician should have to stress over which bin an item of healthcare waste goes in. We created Verify to act as your facility’s personal waste management portal. This tool will generate monthly reports, so you have full visibility to your site’s waste output. It also can house Waste Policies that are unique to your facility and easily accessible to your staff! But the most important, and used feature, is hands-down the Waste Categorisation Index – find out waste stream designations by simply clicking a button.
