Clinical waste

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. Special yellow sacks will be supplied along with sharps boxes to dispose of syringes and needles.

Sharp items such as needles must be placed in the sharps box provided.

Wyre Council, in partnership with its contractor, provides a free clinical waste disposal service for domestic properties.
