Clinical waste has to be packaged, handled and collected under controlled conditions and cannot be disposed of with any other wastes. There are legally enforced regulations covering every step in the clinical waste management process.

We specialise in providing a complete disposal, collection & recycling service for both Hazardous and offensive waste which is produced by businesses who work within the healthcare sector. The safe disposal of healthcare waste is a major responsibility making sure there is no risk to human health.

The Health Technical Memorandum (HTM) 07-01 is a guide for those involved in the management and disposal of healthcare waste which describes clinical waste as:

The definition of clinical waste is provided by the Controlled Waste Regulations (issued under the Environmental Protection Act) and in Northern Ireland by the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order.

Clinical waste is defined as “ any waste which consists wholly or partly of human or animal tissue, blood or other body fluids, excretions, drugs or other pharmaceutical products, swabs or dressings, syringes, needles or other sharp instruments, being waste which unless rendered safe may prove hazardous to any person coming into contact with it. Any other waste arising from medical, nursing, dental, veterinary, pharmaceutical or similar practice, investigation, treatment, care, teaching or research, or the collection of blood for transfusion, being waste which may cause infection to any person coming into contact with it.

We take care of all the requirements of waste transfer documentation to ensure compliance with the relevant legislation. 85% of all waste received is recycled at a state of the art materials recycling plant.

Clinical waste can be divided into three broad groups of materials.


  1. Any healthcare waste which poses a risk of infection (and therefore by definition possesses the hazardous property H9 Infectious);

  2. Certain healthcare wastes which pose a chemical hazard (for example one of H1 to H8, H10 to H15);

  3. Medicines and medicinally-contaminated waste containing a pharmaceutically-active agent.
