What is Clinical Waste?
Clinical waste is any waste that poses a threat of infection to humans, requires special collection and disposal arrangements (incineration) and includes the following:
- human tissue
- blood and other bodily fluids
- swabs and dressings
- syringes, needles or other sharp instruments
Clinical waste must not be placed in your normal domestic refuse container.
A clinical waste sack service may be possible for domestic properties depending on your requirements and is available only through a referral by a medical professional (but this does not apply where medical providers/district nurses call at your property). Please contact your GP surgery for more information and advice.
