Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Walsall
Just northwest of Birmingham you can find Walsall, a bustling industrial town in the county of West Midlands. Its manufacturing history stretches back to its early good fortune in the 14th century, where the town had direct access to significant local resources like coal and limestone.
Today, the town stays true to its history of metal-processing and leather working, remaining a busy and bubbling industrial centre manufacturing a huge variety of products. Avid horse riders may be familiar with Walsall given its fame within the saddlery industry, which has thrived since the 17th century, it’s no wonder that even their football team is known as the ‘Saddlers’!
Aside from industry, Walsall has its own unique landmarks. Art aficionados are bound to enjoy the New Art Gallery, a contemporary gallery featuring art of all mediums, including some works by one of the modern masters – Pablo Picasso.
The Walsall Arboretum is also a highlight, a beautiful Victorian park that is partly covered by the Arboretum conservation area. Since undergoing a large restoration in 2010, the park is more inviting than ever. Many residents will remember the old Walsall Illuminations, a festive event that would take place for up to 6 weeks every autumn to bring the community together.
The 269,000 residents of Walsall have plenty to be proud of, from their football team to their Leather Museum - and innovative healthcare is undoubtedly a part of that.
