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.
- 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
- we do not collect medical waste from businesses, charities or doctors surgeries
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.
