Clinical waste & assisted collections

Clinical waste

We provide a separate, weekly collection for infectious healthcare waste or sharps. This waste is subject to stricter controls than general rubbish and therefore must be collected and treated separately. 

Sharps bins can be obtained on prescription (FP10 prescription form) and clinical waste bags will be provided by the Council’s Contractor. 

Assisted collections

This service is for residents who are physically unable to manage their bins and boxes and there is nobody else living at the property who can help. The crews will collect the containers from an agreed point and return them back to the agreed point.
