Clinical Waste

Our clinical waste contract does not allow us to take in clinical waste bins that patients use in their homes. We therefore do not supply clinical waste bins to patients.

We can prescribe a needle clipping device to use as outlined in the leaflet.

If you are issued a clinical waste bin from a hospital or other organisation you will need to return the full bin there.
