Clinical waste is produced in healthcare activities and needs to be disposed of legally and safely.

There are legally enforced regulations covering every step in the clinical waste management process.

  • Clinical waste has to be packaged, handled and collected under controlled conditions and cannot be disposed of with any other wastes.
  • We specialise in providing a complete disposal, collection and recycling service for both Hazardous and offensive waste which is produced by businesses who work within the healthcare sector and other operations that generate clinical waste.
  • The safe disposal of healthcare and clinical waste is a major responsibility making sure there is no risk to human health or the environment

The Health Technical Memorandum (HTM) 07-01 is a guide for those involved in the management and disposal of healthcare waste which describes clinical waste as:

“The definition of clinical waste is provided by the Controlled Waste Regulations (issued under the Environmental Protection Act) and in Northern Ireland by the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order.


Clinical waste is defined as “ any waste which consists wholly or partly of human or animal tissue, blood or other body fluids, excretions, drugs or other pharmaceutical products, swabs or dressings, syringes, needles or other sharp instruments, being waste which unless rendered safe may prove hazardous to any person coming into contact with it. Any other waste arising from medical, nursing, dental, veterinary, pharmaceutical or similar practice, investigation, treatment, care, teaching or research, or the collection of blood for transfusion, being waste which may cause infection to any person coming into contact with it.


We take care of all the requirements of waste transfer documentation to ensure compliance with the relevant legislation. 85% of all waste received is recycled at a state of the art materials recycling plant.

Clinical waste must be ‘rendered safe’ to remove the risks that it poses. Chatha Hygiene’s Collections and disposal service always makes sure that you remain compliant with the latest regulations as well as protecting your employees, patients and others from the risks involved with clinical waste.


All waste is managed by Chatha Hygiene Waste Services and is collected using our own vehicles with no sub-contractors or agency staff used.
