We can provide a free separate collection to householders for infectious waste, which includes the safe collection and disposal of items like hypodermic needles and dialysis waste. This service is not available to commercial or clinical properties or service providers. 

Please contact us to arrange either a one-off collection or a regular collection. 

Clinical waste must be made ready for collection by placing it in sealed yellow clinical waste bags or sharps boxes, which are provided free of charge on an exchange basis.

Clinical waste collections in Mid Devon take place weekly on Mondays. The contractor that that carries out this service uses an unmarked van to ensure that your collection remains discreet.

You can also request this service via your medical practitioner, such as your doctor, district nurse, hospital or clinic.

If your collection is missed, please contact us to let us know so that we can inform our contractor.
