"Sustainability is Incredible..."
We've used Sharpsmart for over four years. The traceable sustainability of the Sharpsmart containers is incredible.

With over 17 years serving British private healthcare, Sharpsmart is not only experienced but also adaptable to the changing landscape of waste challenges impacting private health. As communities have changed, we have developed clinical waste solutions that perfectly intercept the needs and behaviours of safe and compliant waste management across the private sector.
Our passion is not delivering a waste service, but driving clinical transformation. With a national service footprint and portfolio of longstanding customers in health centres, private hospitals, cancer centres, surgery units, referral centres and consultation centres, we understand the diverse needs of healthcare and deliver solutions that are bespoke, not ‘one size fits all’.
We work within the four walls of your facility to directly understand the factors that influence safe clinical waste management. Whether this is space utilisation, efficiency of movement, occupational risks or safety hazards, incorrect waste segregation and compliant waste stream utilisation or staff training gaps. Once your unique facility needs have been identified, we then work with you to develop a bespoke waste management plan which takes into account:
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.
With a database of hundreds of items weighted against current legislation, contamination profiles and your own facility’s waste designation rules, our mobile waste categorisation tool is redefining self-learn healthcare waste segregation. Designed for intuitive navigation on mobile or tablet enabling use at point of waste generation, Sharpsmart’s VERIFY tool ensures that clinical staff are educated and confident in the categorisation and disposal of offensive, infectious and pharmaceutical waste.
With over 5 years of research invested into its design and engineering, the Sharpsmart collector is manufactured to precise tolerances to ensure that all safety mechanisms are functional on each and every collector. Fitted with an engineered maximum sensitivity safety tray, users are protected in hands-free disposal of sharps and needles. The Sharpsmart is more than just a sharps container, it is an engineered safety device proven to dramatically reduce needlestick injury rates, minimise infection transfer, and substantially improve the risk profile of all organisations that generate and handle healthcare waste.
Staff education is an ongoing process; roles change, new regulations are enforced, and areas of clinical focus respond to industry need. At Sharpsmart, we’re passionate about education because we have seen it transform safety, compliance and waste management efficiency at countless healthcare facilities, it is the X-Factor in driving staff efficiency and cost reductions!
As a company and a team, we are very clinically focused. We’re not waste-focused. We want to help you drive clinical outcomes, not just act as a courier that picks up your grey bin from a cleaning cupboard or loading dock! Our people live by our vision of making healthcare safer, and are focused on delivering a superior customer experience, because we know that everything we do every day either enhances or detracts from your ability to deliver an excellent standard of patient care.
