Clinical Waste

The Council provides a service for the safe collection and disposal of certain types of clinical waste produced by residents in the home and in Residential Care Homes. We will collect, on request, the following items :

  • incontinence pads, stoma bags, dressings and dialysis waste. However, these can only be collected when a Community Healthcare Worker, such as a District Nurse, has assessed the type of Clinical Waste being produced and notified the Council by means of a standard form. In most cases a further assesment will be made by the council to decide if a separate collection is required, or if the person can manage the waste within their existing refuse collection arrangements.
  • hypodermic needles (sharps) should normally be returned , in an approved sharps box, to the place they were prescribed. Where this is not possible the Council will collect.

There is a charge for collections from Residential Homes but collections from domestic properties are free of charge .

Healthcare Professionals should refer to the Derbyshire County and Derby City NHS Primary Care Trust - Operational Procedure for the Safe Management of Healthcare Waste in the Community Setting guidance document.
