Contact us to chat through your requirements for clinical waste disposal – including dental waste services and medical waste services.
Dentists require dental waste services because soft clinical waste is classed as hazardous, it needs to be collected and disposed of by a licensed waste carrier.
Your Clinical Waste Disposal Service
There are two vital elements in our clinical waste disposal service:
- Assistance with ensuring you are complying with all relevant legislation, including advice on completing a pre-acceptance audit
- Collection and incineration of all hazardous waste, providing you with a consignment note on each collection which you will need for your records.
We are happy to help with any questions you may have about medical waste services and dental waste services.
Sharps Disposal – Medical Waste Services
At Hygenie, we work to the ‘Safe Management of Healthcare Waste’ (SMHW) guidance published by the Department of Health (2006) which introduced a colour-coded system for the management and disposal of sharps and other healthcare wastes.
- Orange – sharps not contaminated with any medicinal products
- Yellow – sharps contaminated with medicinal products
- Purple – sharps contaminated with ‘cyto’ medicinal products
All clinical waste disposal units are supplied in various sizes from 0.5 litres to 22 litres, as part of our medical waste services.
Pharmi bins designed for the safe collection, transportation and disposal of solid medicinal waste in original packaging ie tablets (not cytotoxic or cytostatic) available in 5 litres and 22 litres.
Dental and X-Ray Package
