Frequently Asked Questions

What are the sharps and hazardous waste regulations?

Since the government published the 2005 Hazardous Waste Regulations, all clinical waste sharps produced by acupuncture therapists must be disposed of within secure and correctly marked receptacles by law. Like any medical needle, the sharp implements used in Acupuncture therapy can cause damage to the environment or could pose a serious health risk to customers or staff if they are not disposed of properly.

UK Waste Regulations state that sharps like those used in acupuncture therapy must be disposed of in a BS7320, United Nations Standard 3291 container displaying a European Waste Catalogue (EWC) Code. If your business fails to dispose of hazardous waste in accordance with UK law then you could put your customers at risk and even face fines of up to £5000.

Keep your business protected, use our acupuncture waste collection service to ensure that your waste is handled responsibly and in full compliance with UK law.

What is duty of care and what are consignment notes?

As acupuncture clinics produce significant amounts of clinical waste, they are required by law to act with a duty of care when disposing of that waste. The core principles of the duty of care include segregating hazardous or potentially infectious waste from general waste, and ensuring that hazardous waste is provided to a responsible, professional waste carrier for disposal.

As well as following the duty of care, businesses are legally required to sign consignment notes every collection of hazardous waste complete with an Environmental Agency registration number and full details of what is being collected. Use our service and we will provide the legally required consignment notes and help get you registered with the Environmental Agency.

Use our acupuncture needle disposal and waste management services and we will provide all of the paperwork to legally dispose of your waste.
