Household clinical waste
If you need clinical waste removed from your house, we offer a free collection service for its safe removal and disposal.
How do you arrange this service?
Step 1: You should ask for a collection via your district nurse, doctor or GP.
Step 2: Once we receive a request from them, we will tell you your collection day, time and where it will be picked up from.
Step 3: The waste should be placed in an appropriate bag or container and left at the pick-up point.
Please note: collections of needles etc will only be made to patients that are housebound.
