Clinical (Healthcare) waste collections

Clinical waste is classified under law as hazardous waste, which means it requires safe disposal. We can help arrange a safe collection of clinical waste. 

You may use this service to dispose of:

  • Used medical dressings contaminated with body fluids or blood
  • Used syringes and needles
  • Used sanitary products (Sanpro) waste, for example incontinence pads and empty colostomy and urine bags
  • Other waste from a person who is suffering from an infectious disease

Our free clinical waste collection service for residents covers the collection of sharps boxes and waste that is considered infectious. To arrange a new collection, we need a referral from your GP (General Practitioner), District Nurse or other local health professional.
