What is Clinical waste?

Clinical waste is any waste that poses a threat of infection to humans, and has been assessed by a medical professional that it requires special collection and disposal arrangements (heat treatment).

Can I arrange a collection for my clinical waste?

Telford & Wrekin Council has a duty to protect the Health and Safety of its staff as well as that of its Contractors. To do this we require information on the nature of the wastes to be collected that result from health care provided in the home

Parts of the form must be completed by a clinical professional (GP, Health visitor etc).
