We operate a free fortnightly clinical waste collection service for domestic residents from their property throughout Herefordshire. The service is carried out by a dedicated vehicle and is taken for disposal by incineration at an approved plant.

Only a district nurse or care professional can approve the start of a regular collection of clinical waste and you will need to ask them to arrange an assessment and to contact us to arrange a collection.

Clinical or infectious or hazardous waste includes:

  • Soiled medical dressings from a person who has an infection
  • Other items which contain bodily fluids, secretions or excretions from a resident suffering with an infectious disease

It does not include

  • Yellow Sharps boxes - which should be returned to your GP


  • Sanitary products
  • Incontinence pads
  • Stoma bags
  • Catheter waste

which should be double bagged and put in your domestic waste

Clinical or infectious waste should never be mixed with ordinary waste in black bags.
