Medical and clinical waste

Please note that clinical waste and needles must not be put in refuse (general rubbish) or recycling bins.

Medical and clinical waste collections

We provide a free collection service for residents who need clinical waste disposing of. Eligible residents are provided with a yellow clinical waste bin. These bins are collected fortnightly by a dedicated collection vehicle.

We can also help those who produce extra waste due to a medical condition (for example, incontinence), by providing a larger or extra refuse bin.

Before applying for this service, please speak to your health care provider(s) about your needs.

Sharps box collection

We can collect sharps boxes on an ad hoc basis. Please note that we only collect sharps boxes that are either:

  • all yellow
  • yellow with an orange top

If your sharps boxes are a different colour, please contact the health care provider(s) who gave you them.
