Healthcare Waste Management

Initial Medical makes sure your staff, customers and patients remain safe. We deliver a correct and trusted healthcare waste management service to your healthcare practice. Our vital services include medical waste segregation and storage as well as waste disposal.

We reduce the potential risk to humans and the environment in accordance with legal regulation. Our medical waste solutions are practical, efficient and will be fully tailored to your specific needs.

A Bespoke Solution

An NHS hospital requires a very different medical waste management plan to a local dental practice. We provide you with a host of ways to safely segregate and store hazardous and non-hazardous waste to suit these different needs, as well as an individual healthcare waste collection plan.

What is Healthcare Waste?

Healthcare waste covers a range of different hazardous and non-hazardous waste types, including anatomical, cytotoxic, dental and clinical infectious waste. These waste types require specialist management and disposal as they could endanger those who they come into contact with.
