Waste Disposal

Education focused service solutions for Pharmaceutical Waste Management


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

  • Out of date or partially used pharmaceuticals
  • Controlled drugs destruction kits
  • Cytotoxic and cytostatic medicines 
  • Recalled pharmaceutical stock
