We deliver a clinical waste collection service to both domestic and commercial properties in the District only after assessment by your G.P or Health Care Professional. Domestic collections will be arranged by the council only if the conditions of the NHS assessment are met.

Commercial collections are charged at a rate of £6.36 a bag per week, £165.36 over 6 months or £330.72 over 12 months.

Clinical waste is categorised as follows:
