The safest, most environmentally responsible and cost-effective veterinary waste solutions in the UK


Sharpsmart's unique services deliver substantial cost savings. Our reusable containers eliminate the manufacture, purchasing, assembly and disposal costs of boxes and disposable containers, removing a significant cost surplus from your clinical waste management.  


Sharpsmart's services are designed to maximise the efficiency of all healthcare practices, ensuring minimum disruption to facility management and offering flexible scheduling to cater for each customer's waste volume requirements.


Sharpsmart's mounting and movement accessories enable sharps, clinical and pharmaceutical waste containers to be positioned at point of care to ensure waste handling and cross-contamination risks are minimised. 


With Sharpsmart, you can know exactly what you are paying. With no hidden costs, no automatic price increases or contract renewals, and transparent customer service, we position ourselves as a partner rather than a provider. 


Choosing reusable containers dramatically reduces the volume of plastic and cardboard being disposed of in landfill, together with lessening CO2 emissions by the elimination of manufacturing and destruction. Our waste containment, service and waste reduction solutions are all driven by a goal to reduce environmental impact. 


We don't take risks with patient and staff safety, all Sharpsmart's waste containment solutions are designed to protect users, and our compliance team ensures that each facility we work with is fully compliant to all local and nationally mandated regulations.

"14% clinical waste reduction..."

Before using Sharpsmart, we were having issues with sharps bins not being correctly used, increasing the risk around sharps disposal. Through the introduction of Sharpsmart, the amount of clinical waste we send for incineration has reduced to 14% of our clinical waste – a saving of 10 tonnes per year – just by removing the plastic containers.

"Reduces our footprint..."

The reason why we chose to use the Sharpsmart sharps container was due to the sustainability issues of being able to recycle the actual sharps bin rather than incinerating them and causing more issues with carbon footprint.

"Reduced Clinical waste by 58%..."

From switching over to the Sharpsmart system: in a 12-month period, we reduced our clinical waste by 58%. That in turn saved our organisation nearly £7,500

"Would recommend to everyone..."

We are extremely pleased with the service we are receiving from Sharpsmart. The sharps bins are a lot safer than what we were previously using and can be wall mounted really easily. Collections are always on time and consignment notes provided. We would recommend Sharpsmart to anyone and everyone.
