Clinical waste

What you can do

You can safely dispose of infectious and hazardous waste using a special collection service, authorised by your doctor.

This service is free of charge and collected from home addresses every Thursday from 7am.

You can dispose of clinical waste in:

  • orange sacks
  • a (yellow lid) sharps box
  • a (purple lid) sharps box

There are two types of sharps box subscription:

  • exchange - the sharps box is collected and a new one dropped off
