Private Health

Looking for a single vendor to manage all of your healthcare waste?


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.



How are we Different

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: 

  • Waste collection and treatment for all clinical and non-clinical waste streams
  • Online education and waste segregation training aligned to (HTM) 07-01 regulations
  • Right-fit sharps and clinical waste containers that match your waste volumes
  • Supply chain management of bags, labels and consumables
  • Trolleys, storage or mounting that optimises the space of your facility
  • Seamless integration and implementation of your new containers or services
