Our Clinical Waste Collection Service

If a member of your household produces special clinical waste (e.g. dressings for people on long term antibiotics), we provide a weekly clinical waste collection service free of charge.

Clinical waste is collected weekly in yellow sacks by our contractor.

If you would like to be considered for this service, please contact us on the details below. Documentation is required from a medical practitioner (e.g. doctor, practice nurse, clinician, community health practitioner) to confirm that you meet the necessary criteria.

Please note:

  • Incontinence pads can be put in your normal grey refuse bin.
  • Dialysis equipment can be put in your normal grey refuse bin.
  • Please return syringes, needles, sharps and prick sticks to your pharmacist or doctor's surgery.

If you have a large amount of bulky waste resulting from your medical needs, we may be able to provide you with an additional small grey bin (a charge will apply for this). Please view the Council's Fees and Charges Schedule for details of current prices.
