Medical waste collections

Clinical waste is collected weekly free of charge from households who ask for the collection.
We currently provide two different types of collection for clinical waste and sharps.
Clinical waste should be put in Yellow Bags which are provided by your local doctor or district nurse.
Yellow bags should be used for soiled dressings and swabs and you must put your patient number on the bags.
Any needles or sharps should be disposed of in Sharps Boxes. These may be provided by your GP or Health Clinic, or you can purchase one by calling Gateway.

For more information on this service or to request a collection please call 01772 625625 or email us info@southribble.gov.uk
