Medical waste

Clinical/medical waste


clinical waste

If you need to dispose of medical waste such as syringes, needles, swabs, or soiled dressings, speak to your GP or pharmacist to get a ‘sharps box’ and advice on how to arrange a 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 for more information.
