Nursing & Care Homes 

Looking for a single vendor to handle all healthcare waste streams?


With over 30 years of clinical experience serving senior living communities and care homes, Sharpsmart is focused on delivering sharps, pharmaceutical and clinical waste solutions that make sense from all standpoints of safety, sustainability, cost effectiveness and efficiency. We are full of personality and love the customer-service side of what we do! Ultimately we strive to achieve invisibility – invisibility of clinical waste moving through your facility, seamlessness of service with minimal patient interruptions, and solutions that are easy to use and hassle free so you can focus 100% on those in your care. 

With a national service infrastructure, Sharpsmart are industry experts in the regulatory compliance and governance of collecting, transporting and treating all healthcare waste streams including sharps, clinical, cytotoxic and pharmaceutical waste. In a primary care-based facility, we understand the need for waste solutions and services that minimise, rather than interrupt, the continuum of care; our unique point of difference is that we work within the four walls of a facility to drive cost, safety and environmental outcomes - there's no point getting involved when the waste gets to the collection point, the damage is already done. Offering tailored education and compliance expertise, clinical training in waste segregation and safe disposal, and waste audits to monitor segregation adoption - we partner with our customers to deliver waste minimisation and cost saving results at a site level. We don’t just deliver a clinical waste service, we deliver a clinical solution that radically optimises the safety, labour, cost efficiencies and green ratings of your facility.

Our reusable containers are cleaned and sterilised after each use through a 6-stage robotic wash and sanitisation process. 


Foot pedal sharps and waste container operation eliminates hand access, infection-transfer and cross-contamination risks. 


Our ecologically designed solutions positively impact sustainability targets, minimise landfill and drive significant CO2 reductions. 


Experts in navigating the complexities of national regulations, Sharpsmart ensures compliance throughout the waste management process. 

"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.

"Reduces our footprint..."

The reason why we chose to use the Sharpsmart sharps container was due to the sustainability issues of being able to recycle the actual sharps bin rather than incinerating them and causing more issues with carbon footprint.

"Reduced Clinical waste by 58%..."

From switching over to the Sharpsmart system: in a 12-month period, we reduced our clinical waste by 58%. That in turn saved our organisation nearly £7,500

"Would recommend to everyone..."

We are extremely pleased with the service we are receiving from Sharpsmart. The sharps bins are a lot safer than what we were previously using and can be wall mounted really easily. Collections are always on time and consignment notes provided. We would recommend Sharpsmart to anyone and everyone.
