Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Reading


Every August Reading hosts the world’s oldest running popular music festival. Over the years The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, The Who and ACDC just to name a few have hit the stage in this university town, which has plenty to offer all year round.


Propped at the intersection of the Thames and Kennet rivers in southern England, the nearly 220,000 residents of Reading are never bored - the city always seems to have a little something happening for everyone. Reading counts famous literary names such as Jane Austen (as a student) and Oscar Wilde (as a prisoner) in its history of inhabitants, with a plaque commemorating Austen mounted at the old Abbey Gateway.

Basildon Park is a Reading highlight; a beautiful estate with famous walking routes to enjoy nature, even in the chillier months. In warmer weather holiday-seekers may find themselves drifting towards the Thames Lido - an urban getaway featuring a pool, spa and restaurant, also known as King’s Meadow. The old baths were renovated in 2017 and provide a luxe summer experience.

Must-sees in Reading include the 70 metre long Bayeux Tapestry at Reading Museum - rather, the Victorian replica of it. Television aficionados, specifically Downtown Abbey fans will get a kick out of seeing the TV show set in person should they take a drive down to Highclere Castle. View Island near Caversham Lock is a must visit for the nature lovers, with a curious feature; peculiar tree stumps around the island have been carved into the shape of uncanny faces, peering up from the forest floor! With so many unique facets to the Reading lifestyle, healthcare is of prime importance to the everyday life of town locals.
