Clinical waste and sharps

We can pick up infectious clinical waste from homes free of charge every week. You need to be referred to us by a health professional to access this service.

We don’t offer a clinical waste collection service for businesses, including nursing or residential homes. Please search for a suitably licensed waste management company if you need this service.

Needles and syringes

We don’t collect needles or sharps. Please contact your health worker or doctor who will provide a container for safe storage and will advise on how to dispose of this.

Other healthcare related waste such as incontinence pads, stoma bags, plasters and non-infectious dressings should be double bagged in plastic bags and placed into your green bin.
