Clinical waste may contain:
- hypodermic needles
- human tissue
- or other infectious body fluids
However, some households have clinical waste as a result of on-going treatments or post operation after care.
This waste needs to be handled safely and kept separate from other types of household waste.
Request a clinical waste collection
If you produce waste that is considered as hazardous and can be infectious to others you can request for a clinical waste collection.
This service is free of charge.
Please ask your Medical Professional to refer you to Medisort or alternatively fill in the clinical waste Collection Referral form below and take it to your Medical Professional for their approval.
The form must be signed or stamped by your Medical Professional prior to submission. If, your doctor or medical professional is unable to sign your form at this time please add "no signature COVID-19" to the form before sending the completed form to Medisort.
Please complete all fields correctly and completely before submission and this can be scanned by email or posted directly to Medisort, who will be fully managing the referral process and setting up all new London Borough of Hounslow patients
Nappies, sanitary protection and incontinence pads
This type of waste is classed as offensive or hygiene waste. They are predominantly non-infectious, hence do not require treatment.
These items should be securely tied in a black sack and placed with your household rubbish on the morning of your rubbish collection day.
Please ensure this type of waste is properly wrapped and free from excess liquid.
