Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in West Bromwich 


With a population of nearly 80,000, West Bromwich is a market town in the West Midlands of England, just a few kilometres from Birmingham. One of the many towns swept up in the growth of the Industrial Revolution, West Bromwich was home to an extensive coal mining industry until the end of the 20th century.


Brick making and metal trades soon followed including the more peculiar production of coiled springs. The Sandwell town’s bounty of ironstone and coal certainly accelerated the transformation of this once-rural village into a centre for manufacturing and trade. History tells us that West Bromwich was initially known as 'Bromwic' as far back as 1086, meaning ‘broom village’. Beautiful 17th century buildings are still strewn across the town including the striking Oak House Museum, which once belonged to a yeoman farmer.

The town today is a vibrant social hub and draws in fanatic crowds with its popular football team, West Bromwich Albion. Sports aside, the town offers a lively array of options for visitors from indoor rock climbing to an inflatable theme park! West Bromwich offers a diverse culture for those seeking more thoughtful experiences. As the only traditional Panchayatan Mandir in the Western world, the Hindu temple Shree Krishna Mandir is absolutely unmissable. Not only will it be some of the most stunning architecture you may ever see, but visitors commonly note the warmth and kindness they experience when visiting as exceedingly heartwarming.

With a rich historical background, a dash of high-energy fun and a good helping of cultural meaning, West Bromwich truly does prove its versatility. High quality healthcare is yet another component of the town's overarching appeal.



Safety-First Clinical waste removal in West Bromwich

Sharpsmart is the clinically-leading provider of healthcare waste services to West Bromwich hospitals and primary care facilities. In the last 20 years, Sharpsmart has evolved from its early recognition as the “yellow reusable sharps container company” to being recognised across the country for its transformative work with NHS hospitals and primary care facilities in driving an infection-control focused attitude to clinical waste management.

When it comes to clinical waste management (this includes all waste generated in diagnosis, treatment or immunisation including sharps, offensive and infectious waste, anatomical waste, pharmaceutical and medically contaminated waste, cytotoxic waste and controlled substances), we start with understanding the needs of the healthcare facilities we work with, this includes:

  • Site Audits to map current waste volumes, storage and container placement 
  • Waste Audits to diagnose waste segregation compliance and effectiveness 
  • Compliance audit to review current waste handling protocols (including sharps container disposal) 
  • Education and training gaps in waste disposal and segregation
  • Organisational goals in costs, sustainability and safety


From there we create a waste management plan that includes:

  • Bespoke medical waste training and education
  • Right-sized sharps and clinical waste containers positioned for optimum segregation
  • Container mounting and healthcare waste movement optimisation planning
  • Waste pickup scheduling aligned to the facility’s waste volumes and storage capacity
  • KPI’s to drive success for both Sharpsmart and the healthcare provider  


Requirements for Healthcare Waste Generators

As a generator of clinical waste, here are some important documents and legislation you need to follow:

  • HTM 07-01 (Safe Management of Healthcare Waste) Published by Department of Health (DoH) 
  • The Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations 2009 (CDG Regs) and the European agreement (ADR) which together regulate the carriage of dangerous goods 
  • UN 3291 Clinical Waste (Bio Medical Waste or Regulated Medical Waste) 
  • ISO 23907:2012 Sharps injury protection Requirements and test methods - Sharps containers

The underlying principles of clinical waste regulations all point to the correct storage, disposal, segregation and documentation of waste. Pre-Acceptance Audits are a legal requirement imposed by the Environment Agency to ensure correct classification of waste types is achieved, ensuring both the compliance of healthcare facilities and the protection of downstream staff and the environment. At Sharpsmart, our processes are grounded in ensuring healthcare regulations are met, clinical staff are protected in medical waste handling, and your facility’s risk is managed.

Don’t just hear it from us, here’s what our customers say…

“The Sharpsmart education programme at Chesterfield Royal Hospital has been well-received, utilized by point-of-care staff, and validated in the Learner Management System. The system has delivered 100% pass rates for the 1,467 healthcare workers who have logged into the system”

Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust



Infectious-control focused medical waste management is the new norm  

In a COVID-era, back-of-dock waste pickups with no attention given to cross-contamination, unwashed dusty biohazardous waste bins and multi-touch processes is no longer a viable option. A clinical need requires a clinically engineered solution. 

Every aspect of our business model is safety and infection focused, ensuring hospitals and primary care facilities have products and solutions that support rather than compromise quality of patient care and infection control. This includes:

  • Robotic decontamination and sanitisation of medical waste containers after fill
  • Hands-free mobile clinical waste bins that minimise cross-contamination
  • Tamper-proof containers that eliminate risk of pharmaceutical theft
  • Impenetrable sharps containers that reduce needlestick injuries
  • Education that supports clinicians in safe waste segregation at point of care
  • A team of passionate people that are absolutely focused on the safety of patients and healthcare workers
