Clinical Waste Disposal

The correct management of clinical waste is vital for all businesses. There are stringent laws regarding its segregation, storage and disposal. Initial Medical provide an industry-leading clinical waste management service, as well as specialist products to provide safe and compliant storage.

Hazardous and non-hazardous waste can be found in any business, but understanding the differences between clinical waste streams can be confusing. With Initial, you can rest assured that your clinical waste is fully taken care of.

After completing a pre-acceptance audit to identify and categorise the waste you are producing, our expertly trained consultants will design a bespoke clinical waste collection plan to suit your business. This plan includes advice on the proper segregation of your medical waste disposal.
