Arranging collection of clinical and healthcare waste
We provide a free collection service for residents who need to dispose of clinical and healthcare waste. To apply for this service you will need to have our registration form completed at your doctors surgery. Most doctors surgeries have a copy of this form already, or you can print a clinical waste registration form.
Please take or email the form to your surgery, and when completed, please scan in and upload the form.
We aim to notify you within 10 days of receiving any forms.
Take a look at the information below to see how to arrange a collection once registered for the service.
Needles and other sharps
If you use needles and other sharps, you should dispose of them in a yellow sharps box (available from your local surgery), or return them to a needle exchange facility or pharmacy.
Contact us to arrange a collection. Please note, we will only make a collection if you have 4 or more yellow sharps boxes.
Clinical and healthcare waste
Clinical waste such as dressings and dialysis and blood catheters should not be put in household bins. We will provide special bags for this waste.
For healthcare waste, such as incontinence pads, we provide either a larger bin or special bags, whichever is most suitable for your needs.
Contact us to arrange a collection.
Found clinical waste in a public place?
If you find a syringe in a public place, please email us so we can advise you on how to dispose of it correctly.
