Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Swindon


The Domesday Book references the Anglo-Saxon settlement of ‘Suindune’, a small market town set upon a limestone hill until the boom of the Industrial Revolution which catapoulted the town into its sprawling growth that we see today.

Nestled amongst some of England’s finest countryside, Swindon evokes memories of time past. Supporting Britain's rich literary history, the Mechanics' Institute boasted the UK's first lending library, its Steam Museum with its historic locomotives is a throw back to when the construction of the Great Western Railway transformed the town into a transport hub, and the pedestrian friendly "Old Town" where the original settlement stood is now home to an eclectic mix of traditional pubs, cafes and shops. History buffs should pay a visit to Lydiard House, a stunning Georgian manor overlooking rolling parkland and Avebury Stone Circle, just 10 miles south of the town, these prehistoric monuments once consisted of over 500 standing stones almost 4500 years ago and unlike Stonehenge you can still walk among those that are left.

Nature lovers are spoiled for choice… A visit to Coate Water, an enormous reservoir built in 1822, now a nature reserve is perfect for bird watching and spotting deer and foxes playing in the wildflower meadows; and just north of Swindon is the 185-hectare Stanton Park, home to bats, roe deer and buzzards in its sweeping flower meadows, woodlands and pretty ponds.

It’s not hard to see why Swindonians and out-of-towners adore this part of England, known for its history, beauty and friendly people with an attitude to healthcare to match.



Infection-Prevention focused clinical waste management for Swindon Hospitals and Primary Care Facilities.


In Swindon, Sharpsmart is playing a critical role in introducing a new clinically-focused model of healthcare waste to hospitals, nursing homes and primary care facility. Established first and foremost as a safety-for-healthcare company, Sharpsmart provide a clinically differentiated model of waste collection, disposal and treatment with industry leading sharps and clinical waste containers, advanced waste segregation tools and education, and environmentally conscious waste disposal and treatment.


We make clinical waste invisible 

As an essential service provider to UK healthcare for almost twenty years, we understand that clinical waste is not glamorous or drop-dead-inspiring! It’s an essential by-product of patient care, and at the end of the day patient care and infection control is healthcare’s number one focus. Sharpsmart prides itself on developing solutions that are not only safe, but smart. They serve not only a functional purpose, but through their clinical design they influence a safer, more efficient and more environmentally responsible waste programme, let us explain how:

  • Sharps Containers that are designed in partnership with clinicians that are hands-free and designed with 13+ safety features
  • Colour-coded containers for all waste streams with built-in safety and security locks
  • Non-porous surface mobile trolleys, carts and stands that enable efficient movement and restrict ground contamination
  • Robotic washing process that ensures every container is decontaminated and sanitised after use
  • In-hospital colour-coded label-to-poster waste segregation tools
  • Mobile waste identification app to enable segregation on the go
  • Purpose-designed container housing units for transport that limits scratching or contamination of containers

As a full service partner, we not only provide the industry’s leading products and solutions for all waste streams (pharmaceutical waste, clinical waste, cytotoxic waste and sharps among many of the waste streams we handle), but we also provide the full cradle to grave services. Our team support with education in hospitals, our trucks and our drivers pick up your waste, and our clean processing plants handle the weighing and cleaning of containers as well as the final treatment and disposal of the waste.



We help Swindon Hospitals reduce their clinical waste 

One of our primary imperatives in partnering with hospitals and other primary care facilities is reducing environmental burden. How do we do this? We implement waste segregation programmes that teach clinical staff how to segregate waste more effectively; it’s not rocket science, if you put general trash in a clinical waste bin it’s going to cost you a lot more to dispose of than if it went into a trash bin! And from a risk management point of view, if hazardous pharmaceuticals inadvertently make their way into a clinical waste bin or trash can, there’s a whole lot of risk and compliance issues that can come back to haunt you! We understand hospitals are fast-paced environments and clinicians care a lot more about people than they do about process, so our job is to make it as easy as we can. Results that our waste management programme delivers include:

  • Up to 55% clinical waste volume reduction, equating to significant cost savings
  • Up to 87% reduction in needlestick injuries   
  • Significant reductions in carbon footprint and Co2 emissions
  • Up to 30% labor efficiencies through optimised waste movement and reduced “touches”
  • Some very very happy customers. Read what our fan club have to say about us!
