Sharpsmart’s expertise in pharmaceutical waste management extends to direct large-scale specialist collections of pharmaceutical product from pharmaceutical manufacturers. With safe and cost effective energy-from-waste solutions in place for the disposal of non-hazardous pharmaceuticals, Sharpsmart can offer environmentally friendly solutions for the collection, transportation and disposal of pharmaceuticals whilst protecting the brand and risk profile of UK businesses.
Sharpsmart is focused on the Protection of our customers’ brand
Working with pharmaceutical distributors, drug manufacturers and large facilities disposing of expired or unused medications, our focus is always the mitigation of risks for the brands and healthcare facilities we partner with. Our national collection, treatment and disposal services are designed to provide full traceability and proof of destruction for all pharmaceuticals including bulk expired medications, recalled or damaged product, narcotics, cytotoxic waste and injectables.
We are passionate about green technology
As a company, Sharpsmart are passionate about innovation that lessens environmental impact, and our pharmaceutical collection solutions are demonstrative of this. In contrast to standard industry methods that utilise clinical waste incineration to dispose of non-hazardous pharmaceutical waste, our green approach takes high temperature incineration out of the treatment cycle, and replaces it with an energy recovery solution that generates electricity for local communities. All waste is treated in accordance with the waste hierarchy, enabling a green treatment solution that is not only cost effective, but also reduces burden on the environment.
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.
All pharmaceutical waste must comply with the waste classification requirements of HTM 07-01, and EPR 5.07 which require us to conduct thorough pre-acceptance audits to ensure there is no risk of hazardous contamination in the waste designated for collection. As your assigned waste partner, we are also obliged to comply with ADR regulations and UN3291 with regards to packaging and the display of markings/symbols.
All of our services, vehicles and operational facilities comply with regulations, with compliance checks and audits carried out on a regular basis, and all containers bearing labels and markings in compliance with ADR and UN3291. We care about the security of pharmaceutical waste management. The Daniels range of pharmaceutical waste containers are the most advanced security-designed systems in the UK for the collection of pharmaceutical waste and expired medications and form part of a safeguarded waste journey that eliminates tampering, pillaging and misappropriation of discarded meds and controlled substances.
