Medical & Dental Services how we help the medical industry

Clinical Waste Service

Any business producing more than 500kg of hazardous waste has a legal duty to register with the Environment Agency the premises where that waste is produced.

Soft clinical waste from dentists is classed as hazardous and needs to be collected and disposed of by a licensed waste carrier.

Hygenie can help you to make sure you are complying will all relevant legislation including advice on completing an annual pre-acceptance audit.

We will collect and incinerate all hazardous waste, providing you with a consignment on each collection which you will need for your records.
