Clinical waste

Clinical waste is any waste that poses an infection risk to humans. The term also includes drugs and other pharmaceutical products.

Clinical waste is mainly produced by hospitals, health clinics, doctors' surgeries and veterinary practices, but also arises from residential homes, nursing homes and private households.

Examples of clinical waste include:

  • human or animal tissue
  • blood or other bodily fluids
  • excretions
  • drugs or other pharmaceutical products
  • swabs or dressings
  • syringes, needles or other sharp instruments

 For commercial waste there is a charge depending on the amount and number of collections. Each company will have to be looked at individually.

There is no charge for removal of clinical waste from domestic properties.
