Why Should Businesses in North Yorkshire Use Sharpsmart?


Streamline compliant segregation

Sharpsmart provides a selection of point-of-use disposal systems that improve segregation practises with minimal staff behavioural changes.

Save time and effort by segregating waste at the point of generation with a secure containment system. We also offer several accessories to elevate your clinical waste management further, such as mobile carts and bag systems.

Reduce the risk of infection during transfer and optimise your waste segregation system. It’s a no-stress approach that gets the job done.

Forget one-use waste containers. Sharpsmart provides reusable, colour-coded waste containers to keep your costs and carbon footprint to a minimum. We help reduce landfill waste and divert waste from high-temperature incineration. We even use tracking technology to keep tabs on the movement of your waste throughout the whole process.

Our full range of equipment is also designed to be interchangeable and customisable for any space or logistical challenges.

  • 14% Clinical Waste Reduction

    Before using Sharpsmart, we were having issues with sharps bins not being correctly used, increasing the risk around sharps disposal. Through the introduction of Sharpsmart, the amount of clinical waste we send for incineration has reduced to 14% of our clinical waste – a saving of 10 tonnes per year – just by removing the plastic containers.
