Clinical waste collection

Request a collection

We provide a free clinical waste collection service for residential properties within the Chelmsford area.

The company Medisort collect the yellow sacks for clinical waste on our behalf.

You can use the yellow sacks for:

  • human tissue
  • blood and other bodily fluids
  • swabs and dressings

To request a clinical waste collection, you will need to contact us, providing your name, address and contact details.

Medisort will contact you to tell you the outcome of your request, and agree how often they will make a collection.

We only collect syringes, needles or other sharps if they are in a prescription empty sharps container. You can get an empty sharps container from your GP or other healthcare provider. You can then contact us to arrange collection.

If you need to dispose of incontinence waste, you can request an incontinence waste collection.

If you already receive an assisted collection, you will automatically receive an assisted collection for the clinical waste.
