Request clinical waste collection

MK Council provides a free of charge collection of clinical waste from domestic properties, on behalf of the local community health trust.

What is clinical waste?

Clinical waste is the term used to describe waste produced from healthcare and similar activities that may pose a risk of infection, for example, swabs, bandages, dressings etc. or may prove hazardous, for example medicines. 

How to arrange a regular clinical waste collection

Contact your district nurse or GP. They will carry out an assessment and make arrangements for your healthcare waste to be collected by us. 

Please note: this service only covers medical waste produced from patients treating themselves at home. If the clinical waste is produced during the visit of a medical professional, they should remove and dispose the waste when they are finished.

Commercial Clinical Waste

We do not offer a commercial clinical waste service.
