Information about clinical and healthcare waste collections and sharps collections

Healthcare Waste Collections

We provide a clinical waste collection for high grade waste.

High Grade Waste

High grade waste includes:

  • blood or other bodily fluids
  • swabs or dressings

A weekly service will collect your healthcare sacks and deliver empty sacks for the following week. We will need to know where you would like them to be collected from, and how many initially you would like.

We will continue this service until you tell us you no longer need it.

Low Grade Waste

Low grade waste does not require a clinical collection. All low grade waste can be disposed of in your household waste. 

Low grade waste includes:

  • empty bedpans.
  • incontinence pads.
  • empty stoma bags.
  • empty urine containers.
  • non-infectious swabs or dressings.
  • other waste classed as non-infectious.

Please double-bag before putting in your black bin. If you need an additional black bin due to clinical waste, you can request this.
