What you need to know...

Non-contagious waste should be disposed of in the following ways:

  • To arrange a collection of sharps or needles, your GP will need to complete this form.
  • We will only accept forms that are sent from an NHS email address. Your GP will provide you with a prescription for a replacement sharps box.
  • Non-contagious waste such as dressings, incontinence pads and dialysis waste can be double bagged and placed in your rubbish bin for disposal.
