Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Watford


Northwest of London lies Watford, perhaps best known as home to the Warner Bros. Studio featuring many famed Harry Potter sets. Of course, the blockbuster film franchise isn’t the only attraction the town has to offer.


Among its beautiful gardens and museums, the Rickmansworth Aquadrome is a particularly unique nature reserve that rests on an old gravel quarry, where the dug-up holes filled naturally to become the lakes they are today. The site is now commonly used for water sports such as windsurfing and kayaking and is home to water birds like herons and swans.

Beautiful parks and gardens are the norm for Watford, from Cassiobury Park that lies upon the estate of the Earl of Essex, to the eccentric public art at award-winning Oxhey Park. The Cheslyn Gardens also paint an elegant picture with their thriving aviary, exotic plant species and ornamental sculptures.

When you've had your fill of nature, it might be time to catch a show at the Watford Palace Theatre. The Edwardian building dates back to 1908 and in the past has played host to vaudeville-style shows and singers.

To this day you can catch touring musicals and local productions alike as well as screenings of other performances from across the country. Harry Potter fans haven't been forgotten of course, with the Warner Bros. studio having its own dedicated Harry Potter tour. Displaying props, sets and costumes from the film series, visitors can even walk through the Great Hall, or traipse through the carriages of the original Hogwarts Express.

Nature and modern pop culture aside, Watford has one more emphasis - and that's on its healthcare.



Modernizing Watford healthcare waste management 


Watford clinicians are known for going above and beyond to provide exceptional care to their patients – which is why many have chosen to partner with Sharpsmart for their clinical, sharps, and offensive waste management! With our 30+ years of experience, Sharpsmart will continue to connect as many local healthcare waste generators as possible to safer, more sustainable waste management.

Sharpsmart’s mission is unique; we understand that a more modern and hygienic approach to healthcare waste management impacts several areas of a facility, including safety, labour, and overall costs. In optimising those benchmarks, we are Making Healthcare Safer. We have built an organisation that leads the industry with innovation and provides flexible service when healthcare needs it most – like during a once in a lifetime pandemic that forces us to see how infection control must be prioritised.


How we drive a new clinical era of hygiene in Watford healthcare facilities 

  • Innovative clinical waste containment systems | that are not only proven to reduce sharps injury risk, but are categorised as Safety-Engineered Devices 
  • Bespoke Clinical Education | give your team confidence at a clinical level, to safely segregate all healthcare waste streams your facility generates
  • Local Partnership | with local teams and supporting business units across the UK, we ensure you feel supported at all times
  • Customised scheduling and pickups that make sense | our team works with you to assess your needs and give you exactly the servicing you require
  • We make going green easy | our innovative reusable containment systems not only reduce single-use plastic annually going to landfill, but they also eliminate the need for your team to continuously re-order single-use containers at all

Doctors & GPs | Upgrade your sharps waste management!  

Our flagship product, the Sharpsmart reusable sharps container, is well-known across the UK but if your facility hasn’t made the switch – there’s no time like the present! Why are so many Watford GPs choosing this bold, yellow containment system for their sharps waste disposal and management over a disposable option?

  • Our containers reduce risk by enabling point-of-use disposal – see our cart pictured to the left! Sharpsmart containers can be wall-mounted or secured on mobile carts for your needs.
  • All containers are made of impenetrable plastic, eliminating the risk of sharps injury from container puncture
  • The Sharpsmart was proven in a peer-reviewed study to reduce container-related sharps injuries by up to 87%
