Medical Waste and how Waste Options can help?

Accounts Officer

Removal of Medical Waste can be a daunting thought, what if we said it doesn’t need to be!

When it comes to medical waste often people expect organising a reliable medical or clinical waste collection service to be a difficult or extremely expensive service to organise. At Waste Options we can look after all your medical services through one easy service and ensure you can get on with running your business, whether it be a doctor’s surgery, dentists or hospital etc.

As Waste Options provides all major waste and recycling services through our simple online model- you can also consolidate your required services such as general waste bins, cardboard recycling, commingled recycling, sanitary bins & confidential paper disposal through one provider. All our services are delivered on flexible 30 day terms with no hidden costs.

Clinical/ medical bins- We offer scheduled medical / clinical waste collections in two convenient bin sizes to suit your needs – 120 litres and 240 litres:

As per the NSW EPA- medical or clinical waste is defined as:

The protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997; Schedule 1 Scheduled Activities- Clause 50 Other definitions, defines clinical waste as follows:

Clinical waste means any waste resulting from medical, nursing, dental, pharmaceutical, skin penetration or other related clinical activity, being waste that has the potential to cause injury, infection or offence, and includes waste containing any of the following:

  • Human tissue (other than hair, teeth and nails)
  • bulk body fluids or blood
  • visibly blood-stained body fluids, materials or equipment
  • laboratory specimens or cultures
  • animal tissue, carcasses or other waste from animals used for medical research

Sharps collections- we offer sharps collections, often at the same time as your medical waste bin- with the container inside the bin for simplicity.

Shredding of medical records and personal documents- we offer confidential paper disposal in 120 litre and 240 litre bin sizes.

Ancillary services- we have arranged licensed and fully regulated services covering medical practices such as dentist liquid waste.
