Clinical waste

Clinical Waste Collection Service

Clinical waste, including needles, must be collected separately from your normal rubbish.

We offer a free collection for clinical waste from private homes.

Clinical sacks are collected weekly. Sharps boxes are normally collected on request.

The next clinical sharps collections will take place on:

  • Minster & Monkton - Wednesday 31st January 2018
  • Rest of Thanet - Thursday 1st February 2018
