Clinical waste

If you have a medical need to dispose of clinical waste you may qualify for us to collect items.

You must be referred to the service by your doctor or district nurse.

Clinical waste includes the following:

  • home dialysis waste
  • used medical dressings
  • significant quantities of incontinence pads

Small amounts of single incontinence pads will not need a special collection, as they can be bagged and placed in your black bin.

Collections of clinical waste are made weekly using a special yellow sack system.

To arrange a collection (once your application has been accepted), contact us:
