Medical waste and clinical waste are in essence the same thing. It is categorised as waste that for any reason may be contaminated in any with blood or bodily fluids etc. In these circumstances for legal reasons you must assume the worst possible scenario that the person may be infected. For that reason the utmost care needs to be taken when the waste is disposed of.
Medical and clinical waste bins would also be used for offensive waste. Offensive waste is categorised as being contaminated waste, things like plasters, bandages, urine, faeces, nappies etc. Again it is important that these kinds of waste are disposed of correctly.
Although you can use the same bin for all these waste types, there are very different legal responsibilities with regards to disposing of the differing waste. It is the producer of the waste has a legal responsibility to adhere to this, and this is what we are able to do on your behalf, supplying you with all the relevant auditable documentation.
This very much depends on the size and quantity of waste you are producing. For small medical centres, first aid areas or tattooists, a standard sized yellow sharps bin is often perfectly adequate.
For larger quantities or larger sizes of waste, such as body parts or animals or areas like hospitals, veterinary practises, a larger yellow bin may be need.
Our well trained staff will come and install the medical bins where ever they are needed. Your units can then be serviced as often as you require from weekly, two weekly and four weekly according to your usage.
We allocate every site to one service operative, this means that you will (aside form annual leave and illness) always get the same operative servicing your units. We find that this make the experience better for our customers, and our operatives won't have to ask you where your units are when they come to service.
We at Janitorial Direct pride ourselves on our service and are always striving to improve. All of our operatives and well trained and CRB checked.
