Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Oldham

Situated between Manchester and the Yorkshire countryside lies the town of Oldham, a cultural hub historically known for its textiles and cotton spinning in the late 19th century. Literary aficionados may also recognise the town as part of the origin story of British icon Winston Churchill - setting the scene for his first steps in his political career, where he was elected in 1990 as the Parliamentary Representative.


Of course, Churchill wasn’t the only star power that Oldham bore witness to. Visitors won’t want to miss the Oldham Coliseum, one of Britain’s oldest operating theatres that has seen performances from the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel.

Aside from all the fanfare of famous faces, Oldham has its own unique culture and personality. For a truly local experience, head to the traditional-style Tommyfield Market, one of the largest of its type in the north west. Many head over to taste test Oldham’s legendary rag pudding, a delicacy of sorts in the town. If you’re looking for something to wash your pudding down, sample a glass of gin from the World Record breaking gin collection at the Old Bell Inn.

Oldham is also well known for the beautiful South Pennines, a stunning countryside home to many wildlife varieties. Those wanting to get back in touch with nature can take a stroll down The Pennine Way, or go for a bike ride on the Pennine Bridleway. With so much to offer both residents and visitors alike, Oldham knows its healthcare needs to be equally superb.

We offer waste disposal and treatment ease in clinical waste management.

Our early beginnings started with our owner driving a truck, cleaning containers, visiting hospitals, engaging clinicians and small business owners and understanding what was meaningful to them in clinical waste handling. These interactions formed our focus of providing the safest products to protect healthcare workers, and simplifying waste disposal services so that our customers could focus on patient care. Primary care facilities simply don’t have the time to be training staff, understanding stringent pharmaceutical regulations, or worrying if their waste service partner is going to turn up at the scheduled time and bring the correct waste containers. This is our job, and we take the responsibility seriously. In partnering with you to drive the most efficient and cost effective results, we:  

  • Understand what waste streams you are generating
  • Implement training and waste education to optimize compliance  
  • Recommend the right sized containers (and bin locations) that will deliver the best segregation results
  • Implement. We set KPI’s. We monitor, we audit and we hold ourselves accountable to results.

For us, every customer interaction matters. In healthcare it’s the patient experience that drives you, and for Sharpsmart, it’s the protection of clinicians and simplification of services that drives us.
