Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Normanton
Once surrounded by a moat, the town of Normanton lies in West Yorkshire, likely gaining its name from the significant Anglo-Norman presence during the colonisation of Yorkshire. Normanton today is a growing commuter suburb in the Leeds City Region, with great transport links to Leeds, Castleford, Wakefield and more.
For those visiting Normanton, there are an array of gorgeous cottages and homesteads to choose from, such as The Grange or Rolands Croft Guest House. Sporty types will be spoiled for choice when it comes to activities, with Yorkshire Field Sports and Yorkshire Flight Simulator just a short drive away. Most exciting might be Castleford’s Diggerland, a theme park where kids and big kids at heart can operate real, full-size construction machinery in a safe and regulated environment.
For a spookier experience, visit the Yorkshire Scare Grounds Scream Park where it’s Halloween all year round! For something a little more subdued, the picturesque scenes of Normanton Golf Club’s course provide a serene backdrop for a relaxing afternoon. Haw Hill Park is beautiful for a stroll, with a play area and duck pond, it also plays host to the Normanton Gala every year. If you’re feeling peckish, drop by Normanton’s local pub The Robin Hood afterwards for a slice of pizza and a pint.
If you’d rather soak up a bit of the local history, be sure to check out All Saints, the Normanton Church. Built in the traditional perpendicular style, some date the building back to 1256. Another one of Normanton’s most recognisable landmarks is Newland Estate, originally established for the Knights Templars in 1213 before being transferred to the Knights Hospitallers in 1256. Today, it’s a flourishing nature reserve bursting with greenery across the old Estate remains, it even has a small fishing area that is popular with the locals.
Humble and small in community it might be… but when it comes to heart and character, Normanton has it in spades.
Normanton Clinical Waste Management that's local.
A few decades ago, our founder Dan Daniels sold a successful hotel business to pioneer his dream - creating a sharps container that would save lives. Sharpsmart was the name of the container (and subsequently the name of our company!) although 35+ years on, we do a little more than claim fame to the world's safest sharps container .

Sharpsmart was the name of the container (and subsequently the name of our company!) although 35+ years on, we do a little more than claim fame to the world's safest sharps container.
From these humble beginnings, reusability in healthcare waste containment has today become the golden standard of environmental responsibility. Sharpsmart has a range of over 30 different containers, all safety-engineered, to support all healthcare waste that comes out of a clinical environment - clinical infectious waste, sharps and safety syringes, cytotoxic waste, surgical devices, and partially used or expired medications. How are these different from other options available to British healthcare you may ask? We’d be proud to explain:
Supported by hands-free accessories, our containers are “touchless”, i.e. no infection transfer risk or cross-contamination
Tested Scientifically, all containers are robotically washed to a 106 microbial load reduction
These are the only containers to feature in not one, but 6 international peer reviewed studies in leading medical journals!
With over 20 safety features designed with clinician feedback, our sharps container has been proven to reduce the risk of sharps injuries during disposal!
Each reusable container eliminates the use of between 500-700 single use containers over its lifespan

What if you could shrink your clinical waste?
Don’t worry, the solution to reducing your clinical waste volume won’t result in a “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” moment. At Sharpsmart we put equal focus on two factors of all our solutions: education and a tangible container or device to help with the problem. The first step to help facilities to lower their overall waste volume and total costs is through proper waste segregation. This occurs through training together right containers that encourage easy identification for waste disposal. Our team at Sharpsmart will help you develop a bespoke waste education strategy – complete with steps and audits that prove that your waste disposal needs are being met. Our partners frequently use our Verify Waste Categorisation tool to aid in waste segregation and identification too.
Now for the shrinking part – the Vacsmart! This waste shrinkage system is proven to shrink clinical and offensive waste volumes by up to 80% Less volume often means lower costs during disposal. Also it is genuinely very neat to see in action – you can view a GIF of it here. This is one aspect of how Sharpsmart focuses on the challenge of clinical and offensive waste reduction. The best way to think of it is when your neighbour doesn’t break down all their boxes before putting them in the recycling bin. They just wasted all that space for nothing! And now you can’t put your own boxes in. The Vacsmart eliminates any unnecessary space in clinical and offensive waste bags, creating maximum efficiency for disposal. This solution is fully portable and can be deployed within all areas. See, you really can shrink your clinical waste!
