Clinical Waste Collection

Dry Creek Medical Facility

Compliant collection of clinical waste from any healthcare setting.

From large NHS Trusts producing large volumes of clinical waste through to care homes and councils
requiring collections from home care patients of small quantities of clinical waste Veolia has a suitable and reliable collection service to suit your needs.


How we can help

Wastes from human or animal health care and/or related research such as hospitals, care homes, tattoo parlors, and homecare patients all create clinical waste that needs to be safely collected and transported away from facilities. This waste can come in a variety of sizes and types of bags and containers but it all needs to be properly handled and meet regulatory requirements. Our range of collection vehicles from small vans through to double decker arctic vehicles provide the perfect solution whether collecting a small sharps bin or bag of clinical waste or a full load of 770ltr wheelie bins. Our experienced clinical waste Account Managers are on hand to offer you guidance and support on all aspects of your clinical waste service requirements and responsibilities supporting you with pre-acceptance audits and waste prevention and minimisation projects to ensure that your service delivery remains best in class throughout your contract term.


Key Questions About Medical Waste Management

How do we create value for you?

Our Technical Support Team and DGSAs will assess every consignment and we will supply suitable storage bags, containers, paperwork, and labels to give you peace of mind that each load complies fully with legislation.

Our Subject Matter Experts are able to provide your staff with additional face-to-face on-site training, as well as providing you with access to our online E-Learning modules to aid with waste segregation and ensure full compliance with HTM 07-01.

Our national fleet of specialist vehicles and drivers are based at transport hubs across the UK providing cost-effective flexible collections tailored to suit your requirements and guaranteeing that your waste will be managed consistently wherever you’re located in the UK.

All of our drivers are ADR trained and receive additional toolbox talks and classroom style training on healthcare awareness. This ensures they understand the importance of segregation and are acutely aware of the different waste types which are collected from your sites along with the additional hygiene standards and public awareness required when undertaking collections from a healthcare setting.

Thanks to the location of our fleet and the density of our collections, with vehicles routed weekly to reduce expenditure, it’s a very cost-effective service. There is the option to pay for a dedicated vehicle, or you can save money with a per bag or per bin rate for smaller volume collections undertaken when our vehicle is in the area. And to save you even more time, money, and vehicle movements, we’ll also drop off replacement storage bags and containers/bins at the same time as we collect.

Our smaller vehicles are more maneuverable, making them ideal for collection points with a small footprint that cannot accept large, articulated vehicles. They are also equipped with tail lifts and can be loaded by hand or pump truck should you not have a forklift truck.

Whatever your requirements, Veolia has the expertise to provide you with a tailor-made cost-effective, compliant solution.
