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.

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.
