How to dispose of medical/clinical waste.
Incontinence pads may be disposed of in your normal green wheeled bin. If this causes a problem of capacity due to the alternate week collection arrangements, please either complete a short online application form, email Streetscene or telephone on 01653 600666 as you may be entitled to an additional bin.
Streetscene employs a contractor, currently PHS Allclear, to collect and dispose of clinical waste bags. They will collect on either a weekly or fortnightly basis depending on need. Arrangements for this service are usually made by the local hospital or specialist nurse who will contact Streetscene with details of the customer and their requirements. If you have any queries or concerns please email Streetscene or telephone 01653 600666.
If prescribed by your GP, Sharps containers should be returned to the prescribing doctor's practice for disposal.
