Application for Clinical Waste Collection
Aylesbury Vale District Council offers a free weekly collection service for domestic
clinical waste.
To ensure this service is provided to those who require it, we conduct an annual
audit on all householders across the Vale registered to our clinical waste
collection service.
To remind you, there are three different types of clinical waste:
1. Sharps collection
Sharps including needles and syringes should never be put in normal rubbish bin, even if they
haven't been used. They should always be placed in a sharps box, which we will collect and
dispose of safely.
2. Waste that can be disposed in your green refuse bin
Non-hazardous waste such as nappies, incontinence pads and sanitary items do not require
specialist treatment or disposal and can be disposed of in your green refuse bin. We provide a
larger and/or additional green refuse bin free of charge to accommodate non hazardous/offensive
3. Waste that needs to be collected in orange sacks
Hazardous waste needs to be sent to be incinerated in order to prevent infection, this includes
items such as:
Swabs and wound dressings/bandages,
wound vacuum drains or pumps; and
home dialysis waste (except empty saline or glucose IV bags which can be put in your
green refuse bin).
