Clinical waste collection

We operate a clinical waste collection service free of charge to domestic properties.

All syringes and sharps must be placed in the sharps container supplied by the service. Please ensure that the container is correctly locked prior to collection otherwise our operatives will be unable to take it.

You can also dispose of yellow sharps boxes yourself by bringing them to Doughty Road Depot. There is a sharps bin which can be used by the public near the security gates of the depot.

Surgical waste must be contained in yellow clinical waste bags for collection, no other types of bags will be accepted. The yellow bags can be collected from your doctor’s surgery or the hospital.

To arrange a clinical waste collection service register using the Clinical Waste Collection form. Please note we will need to agree with you a convenient collection point.
