Contamination-free Clinical Waste Containers
Sharpsmart's clean container movement is changing the industry’s perception of how clinical waste should be disposed and transported.
In typical healthcare settings, reusable containers are lined with a bag and decanted once the bag is full. This practice leads to bins in patient environments not been cleaned, harbouring pathogens and accelerating risk of cross-contamination. At Sharpsmart, all of our sharps, clinical waste, cytotoxic and pharmaceutical containers are hands-free, and furthermore undergo a rigorous 6-stage robotic washing decontamination and sanitisation process after each use. We are proud to be “moving the goalposts” of what safety in clinical waste containers should look like, our results across needlestick injury reduction, segregation, cost reduction and landfill diversion prove that we’re on the right path!
Why Choose Us?
Sharpsmart offers a different kind of partnership
“Different” is often subjective, a different perspective, a different approach, a different focus, vision or personal preference. For us at Sharpsmart, DIFFERENCE embodies all these things, but it also delivers a very different result. Reduction in needlestick injuries, reduction in waste volumes, reduction in costs, reduction in labour, increase in efficiencies, compliance, trust. We don’t promise you a different methodology, we promise you transformation of your current practices.
Secure pharmaceutical waste management
Protecting staff and facilities in the collection of expired drugs and controlled substances
Setting a new industry benchmark in secure pharmaceutical waste management, the Sharpsmart pharmaceutical containment system mitigates unnecessary risk for healthcare practitioners and the public in the containment, disposal, transport and destruction of partially used or expired medications. Through its safety-engineered design, our unique containment system eliminates tampering, pillaging and misappropriation of discarded pharmaceuticals.
Essentially you’re paying for air in a bag of potato chips!
33% of volume from every disposable container is the plastic it’s manufactured with!
This means that for each container you fill, you’re unnecessarily paying for (and sending to landfill) 33% more waste volume than is required. Furthermore, per UN regulations, each disposable sharps or clinical waste container must be transported in secondary packaging – this usually means a lot of cardboard. Again… not required! At Sharpsmart we think differently, and reusability is especially close to our heart because it means reduced costs, reduced risk to staff and patient safety, reduced handling, and reduced impact on the environment in the disposal of sharps and infectious waste. For us it’s quite simple, you’re not paying for the air in a chip packet AND you are getting the safest and, quite honestly, the most beautiful clinical waste containers in the industry!
