Case Study: Clinical Waste Solutions

Who is Clinical Waste Solutions?

  • Residential care homes

  • Medical and dental practises
  • Nurseries
  • Tattooists

And many more!  

When did Clinical Waste Solutions start working with Commercial Recycling?

Before disposing of their waste with Commercial Recycling, Clinical Waste Solutions were using a waste landfill site in Dorset (which has subsequently closed down), but they were finding that their vehicles were getting damaged due to the nature of the site. For Clinical Waste Solutions to now go directly to a landfill site, it would mean driving to Somerset or Wiltshire, wasting a lot of time on a daily basis. 

As a result, they started to work with Commercial Recycling over 10 years ago as their trusted partner for waste disposal. 

How does Commercial Recycling support Clinical Waste Solutions?

Clinical Waste Solutions relies on our services on a daily basis to dispose of their clients’ waste. They bring 2 types of waste to us: 

Low grade non-hazardous waste

Where possible, this type of waste is sent to energy recovery facilities rather than the landfill. Commercial Recycling manages the disposal of this type of waste for CWS, so once it’s with us, we send it away for end disposal. There are no other local disposal outlets that are licensed to accept and transfer this kind of waste, which is why we are a perfect partner for CWS. 

Examples of low grade non-hazardous waste include: 

  • Incontinence waste 
  • Sanitary waste 

High grade hazardous waste

As this waste is hazardous, it must be collected using a consignment note and be sent to an approved high temperature incinerator for safe disposal. 

CWS use Canford Recycling as a hazardous waste transfer station, they have a compound of 770L clinical waste wheelie bins which are swapped over twice weekly and sent to a compliant end disposal destination of their choosing. 

Examples of high grade hazardous waste include:

  • Medical and clinical waste 
  • Sharps disposal 
  • Infectious materials

Why did CWS choose Commercial Recycling?

We are a major part of the process for Clinical Waste Solutions, and as they dispose of so much waste with us, we have provided a dedicated bay and compound that they can use. This means that we know exactly what waste is what and where it needs to go, without it having to be further segregated. It also means that CWS can come and go as they please, saving them huge amounts of time and money! 

Commercial Recycling has many different waste types on our permit that we are allowed to accept, which puts us ahead of many other waste facilities which are not permitted to accept any form of hazardous wastes.
