We are aware that offensive waste can be a challenging waste stream to manage.
There are various complexities surrounding implementation of a non infectious waste stream ensuring appropriate segregation practices.
SRCL will work directly with waste managers and clinical staff, providing advice and training for appropriate handling, containment, transportation and disposal.
Additionally, support is provided to ensure the Health Technical Memorandum 07-01: Safe management of healthcare waste (HTM) standards are met and by all levels of clinical and other site based staff.
We collect and treat:
- Tiger clinical waste bags -Non-Hazardous Offensive
- Feminine Hygiene Waste
SRCL also supplies UN approved containers coded with our proprietary Bio Track system aiding correct consignment and segregation of waste. Customers can opt from a scheduled service for regular collections or an ‘on-call’ service where waste volumes are not high.
Our service also includes regular legislative updates for all customers and we provide waste awareness training and site audits.
SRCL is much more than just a supplier to us…we have developed a strong partnership, working jointly on solving service issues and implementing innovative solutions.
