Clinical waste collection procedures
We provide a non-chargeable separate collection for infectious or clinical waste and the safe collection and disposal of items like hypodermic needles and dialysis waste from households. We contract this service to Peake GB.
We ask householders to contact us so we can explain how our service works and arrange collections. (Peake GB use unmarked vans to ensure the collection remains discreet).
We will ask householders a series of questions during the phone call to enable us to correctly assess their needs.
We ask householders to present their clinical waste in sealed, yellow, clinical waste plastic bags and/or sharp boxes.
If a householder’s collection is missed by Peake GB, we will inform Peake GB for them to arrange a suitable time for collection.
If householders do not present clinical waste for three consecutive weeks we will cancel the collections.
Non-infectious clinical waste, such as absorbent hygiene products, can be placed in domestic black waste.
