Medical waste bags are used for getting rid of items like soiled bandages, dressings, and incontinence pads.
The bag must be tied securely and not too heavy - one person should be able to lift it and the bag should take the weight of its contents.
If you haven't used this service before you need to contact a healthcare professional, such as a GP or district nurse, and they will arrange your first collection.
Before you start, you will need to tell us:
- What time you put the bags out
- How many bags need to be collected/delivered
- The exact location of where the bags need to be collected from/delivered to
