Clinical waste bags and sharps bins are not collected by the normal household rubbish collection vehicle. A separate vehicle collects them on a specific round so you have to tell us if you need a clinical waste collection service.
We have two services you can choose from. You can also see what goes in each bag and bin.
One-off clinical waste collections
If you only need a collection once or just every now and again because you don't produce much clinical waste, please request a one-off clinical waste collection. You will need to do this each time you want us to make a collection.
Please note we will not leave you with a replacement bag on this service. We do not supply replacement sharps bins on either service. You need to get these from your healthcare provider or pharmacy.
Once we receive your request, our contractor will contact you to let you know when to put your clinical waste out.
Weekly clinical waste collections
If you need a collection every week of clinical waste bags, sharps bins or both, please register for our weekly clinical waste collection service.
On this service we will leave you the same amount of replacement bags that you ask us to collect when you register but we will not leave replacement sharps bins You need to get these from your healthcare provider or pharmacy.
Once we receive your registration, our Contractor will contact you to let you know when to put your clinical waste out.
