We provide UN-approved containers to store your clinical waste
Clinical waste should not be recycled using household waste bins.
It is essential to understand that clinical waste can cause a significant threat to our health and the environment. Due to its potentially hazardous nature, it’s essential that these items are disposed of properly to prevent any negative consequences. While some clinical waste items can be recycled using your regular household bins, it is important to note that only a select few fall into this category.
NHS providers in England produce approximately 156,000 tonnes of clinical waste each year that is either sent to high temperature incineration (HTI) or for alternative treatment (AT), which is equivalent to over 400 loaded jumbo jets of waste. This has a significant environmental impact and is associated with high running costs and carbon emissions.
