Offensive waste is non-hazardous albeit very unpleasant! Consisting of either human or animal waste products – if it isn’t infectious and has no chemical or pharmaceutical substances its likely to be “Offensive” and it really can be offensive to our sense of smell in particular!
So for items including nnappies, sanitary waste, incontinence pads, dressings, catheter and stoma bags they would be classed as being offensive waste.

As the offensive waste is non-infectious, the residual health risk is considered to be low – and does not require transportation as dangerous goods. However, it must be segregated properly and still requires specific labelling, storage and disposal. On a positive cost perspective, it is much less expensive to dispose of than hazardous and infectious waste.

Your Legal Obligations
It’s a legal obligation to segregate clinical waste. Offensive waste must not include clinical (hazardous or infectious) waste – although offensive waste could be (and often is) included with the disposal of the infectious waste. This creates more cost for the practice / business – as it is more expensive to transport Hazardous & infectious waste and to safely dispose of it (usually by incineration).
Therefore effective segregation can save a lot of money. It also can help the environment as offensive waste can have more options to be recycled – some offensive waste from a non-healthcare environment can be sterilised, dried and shredded and either recycled or used in waste to energy process as RDF fuel.
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 and ensure that their waste disposal is provided by reputable and accredited waste carriers for disposal – 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.
