We provide a free clinical waste collection service to residents who have medical conditions that generate waste, which must be disposed of under controlled conditions.

  • waste, excluding needles, must be sealed in the clinical waste bag
  • needles must not be placed in the clinical waste bag
  • needles will ony be collected if they are secured in a sharps box

After we have collected your clinical waste:

  • we will provide you with a clinical waste bag after every collection
