Segregate and store each type of specialist waste separately from your general waste.
Either on an agreed regular schedule or you can contact us for additional or ad-hoc collections.
All your waste is compliantly and securely processed, giving you peace of mind.
Compliant waste management is critical in the protection of people, the environment and our communities.
Poor waste management exposes employees, waste handlers and the community to infections, toxic effects and injuries. Such as air, water pollution, disease and needle stick injuries.
Failure to correctly segregate, store, transport and treat healthcare waste can result in pollution, prosecution, fines and bad publicity.
In England and Wales the mixing of waste streams is prohibited by law - the waste producer is legally required to correctly segregate, label, package and store their waste. In Scotland it is considered best practice.
The national colour-coded segregation system identifies and segregates waste on the basis of waste classification and suitability of treatment/disposal options.
When segregating waste you must consider both the appropriate waste stream (colour coding) and the appropriate packaging.
