Clinical and Offensive Waste

Offensive Waste produced by Residents

Offensive waste produced by a domestic household should be triple wrapped and placed in the general waste container.

If a large amount of offensive waste is being produced by residents in the household an additional general waste bin can be supplied. The need for an additional bin in these circumstances will be assessed by an officer and each case will be looked at on an individual basis. The following circumstances will be considered:

  • Where one or more adults in the household have a condition that causes them to produce a large amount of incontinence pads, adult nappies, soiled clothing and/or bedding.
  • There are two or more children in the household, that wear disposable nappies.
  • There are one or more children in the household with a medical condition that causes them to produce many nappies, soiled clothing and/or bedding.

Bins issued on medical grounds or for children in nappies will be reviewed on an annual basis and may require a visit from an officer for assessment. 

Where you would like an assessment for an additional bin, please contact our Customer Services team.

Medical professionals, householders or carers are required to complete a Waste Transfer Note before the additional bin or clinical waste collection service can be provided.
