Healthcare waste

This is a free service to collect clinical waste and sharp instruments (for example scalpels and needles) and dispose of these safely. Your GP or other healthcare professional will have a Clinical Waste Referral Form which they must submit to us and then we will contact you to let you know what to do.

Orange sacks and/or yellow sharps boxes will be supplied for you to use.

The service can be used with weekly collections or ad-hoc collections depending on the waste type. This information will be provided to us by your healthcare practitioner via your referral form.

Healthcare waste must not be put in with normal household waste, however incontinence waste and babies nappies can be double bagged and placed in your normal household waste bin.

If you do not have enough space in your waste bin due to incontinence waste please fill in an additional capacity form as you may be entitled to use an extra bin.
