Clinical waste

Guidance

If you need to dispose of medical waste such as syringes or needles, speak to your GP or pharmacist to acquire a ‘sharps box’ and contact your local council to arrange free collection. This waste should not be put in your rubbish or recycling bins as it can harm our operational staff.

There are companies that offer services for commercial premises. Search online or see the waste disposal services section of the Yellow Pages or yell.com for more information.
