We're Experts in Podiatry Waste

Podiatry can include just as many different types of clinical waste as any other medical practice, and some of that waste can include hazardous waste and sharps. Our Chiropody waste disposal service covers the whole spectrum of waste, including:

  • Blood and body fluids
  • Dirtied couch roll and sheets
  • Gloves, aprons and coverings
  • Human tissue
  • Needles and Sharps
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Swabs and dressings
  • And many more

No matter how much waste you generate we’ll provide you with appropriate, compliant waste receptacles, collect when they’re full and service them all as part of our service.

Call today to enquire about our professional chiropodist waste disposal services.

The 2005 Hazardous Waste Regulations state that clinical waste and sharps must only be disposed of within specific types of coloured containers displaying a European Waste Catalogue (EWC) Code. Needles and sharps used in podiatry practices must be disposed of with a great deal of care in order to prevent injury or contamination, whilst human tissue and bodily fluids are considered hygiene/offensive waste and also must be disposed of correctly.

Without following the regulations and government guidelines, you could put the health of your staff and customers in danger, and risk facing fines of up to £5,000. Keep your business protected with our fully compliant waste disposal services and ensure that your podiatrist waste disposal is handled by professionals.

 

Following the introduction of The Environmental Protection Act in 1990, businesses, like chiropodists and podiatrists, which produce clinical and hazardous waste must act with a duty of care to ensure that their waste is disposed of responsibly. This includes segregating hazardous and potentially infectious waste from general waste at the source, and ensuring that your waste is provided to a professional waste carrier for disposal with a signed consignment note.

With our service you can rest assured that your waste is being handled properly by a professional carrier. We’ll even provide consignment notes after each and every collection as part of our service, and if you aren’t already registered with the Environmental Agency we can help you become a fully registered member.

Use our chiropodist waste disposal service to ensure that your waste is disposed of responsibly and in full accordance with UK law.

At Direct365 we strive to support businesses in every way that we can, not just by offering a range of expert waste disposal and facilities management services, but by sharing our expertise whenever we can. With years of experience in chiropodist waste disposal, we have learned everything that there is to know about podiatry and chiropody waste, and gathered some great resources for practices and therapists.
