Clinical Waste

we provide a fully compliant clinical waste management service.

Clinical Waste

There are stringent controls in place to ensure that clinical waste is disposed of in a safe and responsible manner, without harming the environment or human health and it is illegal to dispose of clinical waste (outside of a domestic setting) without a waste management licence.

Clinical waste legislation requires products such as nappies, sanitary waste and medical waste to be disposed of in a safe, legally compliant way in order to minimise the risk of infection. This doesn’t mean, however, that there are not innovative solutions available for the sustainable management of some types of clinical waste.

Clinical waste is strictly regulated by the Controlled Waste Regulations 1992. It is defined as being any product that consists either wholly or partly of:

  • Human or animal tissue
  • Blood or bodily fluids

  • Excretions
  • Drugs or other pharmaceutical products

  • Swabs or dressings
  • Syringes, needles or other sharp instruments which, unless rendered safe, may prove hazardous to any person coming into contact with them

  • Any other waste arising from medical, nursing, dental, veterinary, pharmaceutical or similar practice, investigation, treatment, teaching or research.

Our fully licensed nationwide service ensures that all your clinical waste is handled, stored, transported and treated in line with Department of Health guidelines.
