Frequently Asked Questions

What are your legal obligations?

Since the Landfill Directive came into use, pharmaceutical waste has transformed in order to fully comply with the correct laws. Every type of waste has an EWC code, which is a unique identifier that enables waste carriers to see exactly what your waste is and where it needs to go. An EWC code is printed on all clinical buckets and bags, including your pharmaceutical waste container (EWC Codes 18-01-08 and 18-01-09).

Businesses are fully accountable for their waste production, whether that involves disposing of a tiny amount sporadically or a large amount each month. There’s a lot of legislation surrounding how you should dispose of clinical waste, and this is where we can help.

With every waste collection that contains hazardous material, we'll provide you with a detailed consignment note as standard. This means that you can prove your businesses's Duty of Care compliance and avoid the fines and prosecution associated with incorrect Waste Management.
