Clinical waste

Clinical waste collections

Special collections, including syringes and needles are arranged by your local healthcare provider, such as your district nurse.  For more information please contact your local surgery.

If you find needles in the street, or other public places, DON'T TOUCH THEM. Report them to Biffa (see contacts section of this page) and they'll arrange for their collection and disposal.


Unwanted medicines should be returned to your local pharmacy.
