Two collection arrangements are available depending on the type of waste:

    • Catheter and stoma bags (drained)
    • Wound dressings (non-infectious)
    • Soiled bedding (vomit, human waste)
    • Nasal and respiratory secretions
    • Condoms
    • Sanitary waste
    • Nappies
    • Plasters
    • Incontinence pads

  • Clinical Waste - this needs to be collected and disposed of separately via our clinical collection service. This is waste which poses a threat of infection to humans. The term also includes items such as surgical waste, used syringes, drugs or other pharmaceutical products.
    • Waste, swabs and dressings from infectious disease wounds.
    • Infectious Human hygiene products
    • All sharps including: hypodermic needles and syringes with needles attached.
    • Human tissue
    • Drugs or other pharmaceutical products
