Anatomical waste is human or animal tissue or blood, including heavily soaked materials e.g. swabs and dressings.
Anatomical waste is always considered as potential infectious waste and must be segregated separately from other healthcare waste items.
We offer a cradle-to-grave service with all transport and disposal managed in-house at one of many of our permitted sites that also have generous authorised disposal limits for both solid and liquid wastes.
Clinical waste is any waste that consists wholly or partly of human or animal tissue, blood or bodily fluids and excretions or is contaminated with biologically active pharmaceutical agents.
Hazardous waste is a term that covers many different waste types, all with their own management, segregation, transportation, treatment and disposal requirements.
We are a leading provider of specialist waste management services that protect the public from harmful wastes, promote recycling and alternative use opportunities, and lead to greater safety and personal well-being around the world.
