Clinical waste

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

More information about healthcare waste can be found at GOV.UK

Collection arrangements

We will write to you to confirm your collection arrangements once we have a referral from your surgery or healthcare centre.
