If you think your waste may be infectious, please contact us to let us know the details. A Clinical Waste Officer will review your enquiry and contact you to discuss the options for your clinical waste collection.Enquire about an infectious waste collection
You do not need to request a clinical waste collection for non-infectious clinical waste. This includes:
- incontinence products
- stoma bags
- catheter bags
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.
