Hazardous and Infectious Waste Disposal – Our health support professionals produce infectious and hazardous waste in their daily practice which must be disposed of safely and in compliance with regulations. This must be evidenced through the Waste Transfer Process.
Due to the nature of the processes involved, infectious waste is more expensive to dispose of than regular waste. Good practice therefore is to promote effective waste segregation policies and provide approved waste bins. These bins should display the clear benefits of disposing of waste properly on them for the user to see. They must be collected and disposed of by a registered waste carrier and have a full audit trail available for inspection.

It is estimated by the World Health Organisation (WHO) that almost 15% of clinical waste produced could be considered as hazardous – that it may be infectious, toxic or radioactive. This hazardous and infectious waste requires specific treatments to ensure that it is disposed of securely – in most cases this is via incineration, but can also include steam sterilisation in an autoclave.

Your Legal Obligations
The World Health Organisation (WHO) states that infectious waste is defined as “waste contaminated with blood and other bodily fluids (e.g. from discarded diagnostic samples), cultures and stocks of infectious agents from laboratory work (e.g. waste from autopsies and infected animals from laboratories), or waste from patients in isolation wards and equipment (e.g. swabs, bandages and disposable medical devices).” World Health Organisation
The Environmental Protection Act of 1990 legislates that businesses producing clinical waste have a duty of care to manage their waste safely and responsibly. They are legally obliged to register with the Environmental Agency, ensuring their waste disposal is provided by reputable and accredited waste carriers – evidenced through signed consignment notes.
The service provision from Green Circle Direct keeps you compliant – providing the obligatory consignment note and waste declaration form every time a collection is made – all downloadable from your digital account at a moment’s notice – vital for any inspection.
In 2005, the government published the Hazardous Waste Regulations, changing the way in which hazardous waste including needles and pharmaceuticals must be disposed of. Due to the potential risk that hazardous waste poses to both the environment and society, it requires disposal within specifically identified (with European Waste Catalogue (EWC) Codes), secure receptacles – preventing injury and the spread of disease.
Our Green Circle Direct partner network has in-depth experience and expertise in the management and disposal of hazardous waste – giving you the peace of mind that all of your waste is disposed of ethically and in accordance with UK legislation. From the right bins to the right documentation we will have you covered and leave you to concentrate on the vital servicing of your very own customers and patients.
