Clinical and medical waste collections

Planned maintenance to payments system

We're making essential updates to our payments system from 1pm on Thurs 19 October to midday on Fri 20 October. We apologise that we won't be able to take online or telephone payments during this time

We offer a free collection to residents who need to dispose of clinical waste who have self-medicated at home, for example, sharps (needles) in a yellow box, or yellow bagged waste.

However,

  • if you've been treated at home by a nurse or medical professional, they must take the clinical waste with them for disposal
  • we do not provide replacement empty sharps boxes - you will need to request these from your healthcare provider

Please contact us to arrange a one-off or regular clinical waste collection.

We can also help you to dispose of other medical waste (dressings and packaging) which may not fit in your normal rubbish bin or recycling boxes. Please contact us to discuss how we can help you.
