Medical and clinical waste

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.

Clinical waste is taken to specialist facilities for processing for safe disposal. This includes treating sharps with advanced thermal treatment.

If you find needles in the street, or other public places, don’t pick them up or touch them. Report them to Biffa (see the contacts section below) and they’ll remove them.


If you have any medicines or tablets you don’t want or need, please return them to your local pharmacy or chemists.
