Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Stoke-On-Trent
If there’s one theme central to the town of Stoke-On-Trent, it is - rather peculiarly - pottery. Home to household names including Wedgwood and Royal Doulton, Stoke is the place to go to understand the rich history and art of the pottery industry through their many institutions. The Gladstone Pottery Museum, housed in a former Victorian factory is a great place to start, while the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery showcases locally made ceramics and decor. If you’re feeling a creative spark of your own, swing by the World of Wedgwood where you can have a go at creating your own unique piece to take home. How’s that for a souvenir?
Of course, there’s so much more to the central city’s personality than pottery. Daredevils can visit Alton Towers, Stoke’s trademark theme park, with attractions sure to give even the most eager adrenaline junkies a wild ride. For those seeking something a little less chaotic, Trentham Estate is a fairytale-like haven. The Italian landscaped gardens are a sight to see and the estate even has a monkey forest for those wanting to connect with our primal predecessors. To get the blood pumping, afternoon activities can be relegated to Trentham's rope course - where true skill and coordination can really be put to the test!
A day out in Stoke-On-Trent wouldn't be complete without munching on an oatcake, the town's signature snack. With so much to do and see, it's important to take a moment to replenish and refuel - and this sentiment is only echoed by the city's commitment to quality healthcare.
Sharpsmart uses bold color to improve healthcare waste segregation
We made a splash in the healthcare waste management sector when we launched our fabulously yellow, reusable sharps container. It became our signature look, if you will. We've gained several partners who love our bold safety solutions, including University Hospitals of North Midlands. Since we launched our Sharspmart container, we have expanded our solutions to meet a variety of waste stream segregation needs. You may be wondering why we make such a big deal about our color palette. Sorting by color is one of the earliest practices a person learns as a child. It is a quick and effective method of learning that is perfectly applicable to clinical, sharps, and pharmaceutical waste management. Through the combined powers of education and color, clinicians can confidently sort and dispose of healthcare waste.

Wouldn’t it be neat if your reusable sharps containers were emptied and processed using a fully automated robotic system that was peer-reviewed to completely decontaminate and santise? Well, when you partner with Sharpsmart that’s exactly what happens thanks to our independently tested “Washmart” system!
The process of how our Washsmart came to be is a key piece of our origin story, which actually began with a second-hand washing machine. Our CEO, Dan Daniels, sought to create the world’s safest and most eco-friendly sharps container while simultaneously developing a compliant method of washing and decontamination. He achieved both goals! Here’s a bit of information on what we achieve through our washing process:
The highest levels of microbiological efficacy and bacterial load reduction using eco-friendly cleaning solutions and powerful jet-blasting hoses with steam technology
Complete removal of blood and other human-source soiling inside of a container
A sanitisation level that, when independently verified, was four times higher than required by the US’s Center for Disease Control
Parameters that ensure quality ensuring the entire washing process from time, temperature and water volumes necessary to achieve our high standard of cleanliness
Sharpsmart has over 20 inbuilt safety features designed from feedback by clinicians like you.
Our unique yellow, reusable sharps container was so innovative we named our organization after it. We wanted to ensure that this sharps container was the safest solution possible for those that would be using it every day – so we asked our customer-base what features were important to them. A few of the items noted, and executed into the final product were, no-touch disposal methods, impenetrable plastic, tamper-roof locks, and leakproof seals.
