Driven by power of education, Sharpsmart's pharmaceutical waste management solutions are leading the charge when it comes to compliant pharmaceutical waste management. With face-to-face training and a dedicated team, your facility will be empowered to confidently segregate and dispose of all categories of pharmaceutical waste.
We care about the ecology of pharmaceutical waste management
Mismanagement of pharmaceutical waste has severe repercussions to the general public and the environment. If not handled properly, pharmaceutical waste can infiltrate our environment, causing water pollution and food contamination. We provide tamper-proof and secure reusable non-hazardous pharmaceutical containers for sharps and medications that increase your sustainability by reducing single-use plastics. These leakproof containers aid proper waste segregation and are the most secure option for storing non-hazardous pharmaceutical waste. Once your containers are ready to be serviced, we provide you with new reusable containers at a frequency that meets your needs. As a total waste management partner, we ensure total compliance by protecting your pharmaceutical waste through the entire cradle to grave process.
Waste Segregation through Education
One of the main barriers to proper pharmaceutical waste disposal is not knowing what waste classification a drug is; our Verify Waste Identification Tool can assist with this. This tool has an intuitive waste categorisation index that assists you in classifying pharmaceutical waste correctly and details the disposal procedure for each class. With capability of integrating your facility's own waste policy, it ensures that waste is not only segregated according to regulations but also in accordance with any specific requirements unique to your facility.
We drive safety and change by working with healthcare organisations in managing all sensitive waste streams. As an industry leader for over 30 years, we have developed safe and compliant programs for the handling and destruction of hazardous, non-hazardous, and controlled pharmaceutical waste, which includes consultative meetings, facility visits, waste classification, packaging recommendations, secure GEO tracked transportation and compliant disposal. Full visibility through the entire process and certificates of destruction will also be provided to ensure all risk is mitigated in the tampering, pillaging and misappropriation of discarded pharmaceuticals.
Types of Pharmaceutical Waste we can manage
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.
Our mobile technology provides porters with an intuitive and easy-to-use scanning system which logs the exact waste collection location, fill-level of the bin and easy identification of compliance risks. Bringing full transparency to the daily management of clinical waste streams, Tracsmart delivers real-time data that enables hospitals to manage their costs, waste stream efficiencies, environmental footprint and compliance risks without any additional labour requirements.
In a day and age where pharmaceutical abuse prevention and expired medicine tracking is more critical than ever, Sharpsmart is fully invested in security systems that safeguard your waste journey. With containers that eliminate tampering, theft and misappropriation of discarded pharmaceuticals, and transport and CCTV processes that ensure visibility from cradle to grave, Sharpsmart provides full security of your pharmaceutical waste management.
In our 30 year history we have represented some of the world’s biggest hospital brands in driving green waste transformation; we have innovated across the spectrum of robotic washing technologies, reusable waste containment, alternative treatment methodologies and waste minimisation programmes; We see sustainable innovation as the cornerstone of our future. Reducing plastic, diverting waste, driving significant reductions in CO2 emissions… in healthcare facilities across the United Kingdom we have countless case studies and success stories to share.
We clean after use. That’s right… when your clinical waste container gets filled we don’t just put another bag in it and hope that someone in the next few months will clean the container. We take it away and the container gets cleaned through our state-of-the-art robotic washing machine. Made with over 15,000 parts, Sharpsmarts' mechanical washline feeds each reusable container through a 6 stage washing and quality control process, achieving a 6log bacterial load - the highest ever recorded in a bin-washing technology. At Sharpsmart we take contamination and infection risk seriously; whether it’s a sharps, cytotoxic or pharmaceutical waste container, with Sharpsmart its hygiene will be guaranteed.
