Non-infectious waste

You do not need to request a clinical waste collection for non-infectious clinical waste. This includes:

  • incontinence products
  • stoma bags
  • catheter bags
  • dressings

Instead, place these items in a securely tied bin liner and dispose of them with your normal household rubbish. If you need an extra or larger bin for non-infectious waste, you can request one free of charge.
