What is Clinical Waste?
Clinical waste, otherwise referred to as medical waste, is hazardous or harmful waste that cannot be disposed of with the rest of your general waste. Medical waste is defined by the Controlled Waste Regulations 1992 as:
- Human or animal tissue
- Swabs or dressings
- Blood or bodily fluids
- Drugs or other pharmaceutical products
- Syringes, needles or other sharp instruments which, unless rendered safe, may prove hazardous to any person coming into contact with it.
Clinical waste poses a risk to humans and animals alike and, therefore, must be disposed of safely and efficiently by an experienced professional.
