Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Sheffield


At the base of the Pennine highlands lies Sheffield, a metropolitan borough of South Yorkshire with a rich history in engineering and industry. Originally known by the name of Escafeld, Sheffield today plays host to a range of vibrant cultural events, theatre shows and galleries that keep residents and visitors alike entertained year-round.

Innovation in the form of steelmaking was abound throughout the 1700s and all the way into the 1900s in Sheffield, including birthing the process for stainless steel making, copper plating and the early “crucible process”. This particular namesake lives on in Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre and Crucible Studio, which are two thirds of the Sheffield Theatres - the UK’s largest theatre complex outside of London.

Feeling like a bit of a shop? Hop on a tram or, sunshine pending; take an amble down High Street. The original city centre of Sheffield holds plenty to do and see. You can spot the old homes of local gems like the Crazy Daisy nightclub, or the Old Blue Bell Pub. If you’d come by in the olden days, we’d have told you to watch your step - High Street had ‘the hole in the road’, an enormous underground roundabout passageway right in the middle of the road. Thankfully, today it’s been paved over and is a far safer walking surface for passers-by.

Don’t forget to bring a brolly when you’re out and about, because the town is known for it’s dreary and windy weather! While some locals say this is something they wish they could change about their hometown, many also find the rainy mood quite a charming trait of the city. As the sun sets, head to the Cavendish for a pint and a round of pool to finish off the day - and rest easy knowing healthcare is also important to the people of Sheffield.

All of our reusable solutions are vividly coloured to make the process of separation easy – we want you to know what bin it goes in!

We service locally.


While Sharpsmart may have grown into a global business over the last 30 years, we have never strayed from our core initiative to provide local service to healthcare facilities. No one likes being in a business partnership with and entity that is so large you never really get to know them or feel like you don't have a true relationship! When we implemented our unique, yellow reusable sharps container in the UK, we kept our focus on customer experience and safety – values we continue to uphold today. We’re proud to be the neighbours of Sheffield and to provide clinical, sharps, and pharmaceutical waste management services that Make Healthcare Safer for you.


All healthcare waste we collect and transport ultimately comes back to one of our clean processing plants. Here our team of experts manages the disposal of waste and sanitisation of our reusable containers. Using robotic washing technology, we ensure the utmost level of compliance through our processes. Your local team takes care to ensure that your costs, efficiencies, safety, and compliance are all optimised.
