Request a clinical waste collection

You can request a collection of clinical waste from your home with the approval of a medical professional.

This kind of waste needs to be handled safely and kept separate from other types of household waste.

The service is free of charge.

Clinical waste may contain:

  • hypodermic needles
  • blood
  • human tissue
  • other infectious body fluids

Not clinical waste:

  • nappies
  • sanitary protection
  • incontinence pads

With these items, you should:

  • wrap them thoroughly to make sure no unhygienic liquid leaks out
  • put them in a bag and tie the bag securely 
  • put the bags in your black wheelie bin ready for your scheduled collection
