Medical waste collections
We provide a medical waste collection service and collect both infectious health care waste and sharps boxes.
To request a medical waste collection, the patient or their representative should contact our customer services team who will take the necessary details. e.g. name and address of patient and the contact details of their GP or district nurse.
A form will be sent to the patient's medical professional via Nottinghamshire County Council. If the medical professional assesses the waste to be infectious we will supply bags and stickers and advise on the date of the collection. Health care waste which is not infectious should now be wrapped in a plastic bag and placed in the green refuse bin.
If you have a problem storing this additional waste or wish to arrange a collection, please contact our customer services team.
Weekly collections take place on Tuesdays and Wednesday and are ongoing until you notify us.
Occasional collections will mostly be for sharps boxes. Once you have been set up for collections (as per above) you can request collections using our online form.
COVID-19: Waste and recycling collection update
Household waste (black/green bin) and recycling (silver bin) collections are running as normal. However, as we have had to change the vehicle routes, we cannot guarantee that your bin will be emptied at its usual time. Please double-bag any tissues or similar items that might carry contamination.
Garden recycling (brown bin) collections will resume on Monday 1 June.
Additional side waste will NOT be collected.
