Request a clinical waste collection

  • ‚ÄčThe council provides a free clinical waste collection service to residents of the borough who have medical conditions that generate waste, which must be disposed of under controlled conditions
  • If approved for the service, residents will be provided with clinical waste bags to use
  • We do not provide Sharps boxes, these are usually provided by your GP or Pharmacist.

Clinical waste is classed as:

  • waste which poses a risk of infection
  • medicinal waste

Please note: used incontinence products are not classed as clinical waste and should be disposed of within the general waste bin. An extra general waste bin can be requested for free if needed for a large amount of incontinence products.
