What is clinical waste?

Clinical waste, also known as healthcare waste or medical waste, covers any waste generated in healthcare or medical-related activities that can potentially pose a threat to public health or the environment. This type of waste includes many different substances, included syringes, contaminated dressings, blood-soaked materials, pharmaceuticals, and discarded medical equipment.

Due to the potentially hazardous nature of these materials, proper management and disposal are crucial to prevent the spread of infections and safeguard the environment. Handling clinical waste correctly means following rules and guidelines to keep healthcare workers, the public, and the environment safe. We use proper disposal methods, like incineration, to reduce the risks linked to clinical waste and help maintain public health and the environment.

WGS handles all kinds of clinical and healthcare waste, from swabs and syringes to drugs, dressings, and bodily fluids.

  • Hazardous Waste & Substances (disposed of in 5kg medium weight & 10kg heavy duty orange clinical waste bags to ensure waste segregation)
  • Dental Waste (including amalgam guards, caps and sludge, tooth boxes, bridge & crowns, photo fixer developer, lead foil and gypsum waste – calcium sulphate)
