Get help with collections of clinical waste

Hazardous clinical wastes should not be disposed of in your wheelie bin or blue sack. Examples of these include:

  • Dressings, bandages and swabs
  • Used syringes and hypodermic needles
  • Catheter and stoma bags
  • Feeding and drain tubes
  • Other waste from a client suffering from an infectious disease

Requests for a clinical waste collection are usually made via your doctor or other medical practitioner. However, you can also request a clinical waste collection yourself :

Following your request, we will arrange for one of our team to visit your home to undertake an assessment of your needs. If the assessment confirms that you need a clinical waste collection, you will be issued with yellow sacks for the disposing of the waste.
