Walk-In Centres 

Safe and cost-effective  clinical waste solutions designed for walk-in centres


With safety at the forefront of its solutions, more ambulatory care centres are choosing Sharpsmart for customer-focused and cost-effective sharps disposal and clinical waste management. 



With safety as our primary driver, we believe that infection minimisation in walk-in centres is a necessary priority. Our total waste management systems have been clinically designed and engineered to protect users in the disposal of sharps, pharmaceuticals, and clinical waste. Clinical waste disposal is so much more than an orange bag, we believe that safety in clinical waste handling needs to be redefined. The Sharpsmart team is committed to reviewing your waste management plan and working to improve efficiency and safety in every aspect of your process. Walk-in Centres have especially benefited from our Auditsmart KPI Management program. Through several optional audit types, we can provide feedback on how to improve waste segregation with photographic dissemination, and an outline of site-customised methods to lower total costs.  One of the main causes of waste-associated cost inflation is poor segregation – and we aim to correct that for all our customers. By providing education on correct waste segregation and point-of-use solutions for segregation at the point of waste generation, we also minimise the amount of waste going to landfill and lower your carbon footprint.


As a total waste management partner with over 30 years experience in healthcare, Sharpsmart has the solutions, licensing and compliance expertise to protect the safety risk exposure and regulatory responsibilities of Walk-in Centres. We deliver expert waste containment and services, transport scheduling, education and compliance; all customised to your healthcare facility’s needs. At Sharpsmart, we service all types of Walk-in Centres from urgent care to minor injury units, with our product offerings, service frequencies and clinical support solutions designed to perfectly complement each facility we work with. 



The most innovative and environmentally responsible healthcare waste solutions for Walk-In Centres


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 movement and mounting accessories enable sharps, clinical waste and pharmaceutical containers to be positioned at point of care, enabling safe hands-free deposition in a fast-paced emergency or patient care environment. Options include wall mounting, bench mounting, static stands and mobile trolleys.


Foot pedal operated accessories eliminate hand access and minimise odour expulsion; vacuum sealing technology and clinically designed containers with inbuilt safety trays and secure locking mechanisms ensure potentially harmful or infectious waste is concealed.


Sharpsmart's containment and waste segregation solutions are designed firstly to minimise clinical waste, and secondly to reduce space and movement burden in healthcare environments. Our Bag to Bedside offering takes waste out of the ward environment, enabling space to be dedicated to patient care. 


Choosing reusable containers dramatically reduces the volume of plastic and cardboard being disposed of in landfill. All Sharpsmart reusable containers undergo a rigorous 6-stage robotic wash and sanitisation process that eliminates challenge organisms and proves a 106 Log reduction in bacterial load.


Experts in navigating the complexities of provincial and federal regulations, Sharpsmart partners with healthcare facilities to ensure compliant practices are achieved through all clinical waste management practices, and the risk exposure of clinical and protering staff is minimised. 

"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.
