Clinical waste | South Norfolk Council

Clinical waste

We collect clinical waste from homes free of charge. Clinical waste includes incontinence pads, stoma bags and dressings. Please double bag incontinence pads, urinary catheter bags/tubes and stoma bags and place them in your black rubbish bin. If this extra waste becomes a problem, please contact us

Wound dressings, some forms of dialysis and some wound/blood catheters need a special collection and cannot be placed in your black rubbish bin. For these, please request a clinical waste collection

Once you have made a booking, it should take no more than ten working days for us to contact you to arrange a collection at a suitable time. 

We no longer collect sharps/needles. Sharps containers are provided by your local GP surgery. Please contact them directly to request one.
