Low grade clinical waste is produced by various types of businesses and is most commonly from care homes, nurseries, beauty salons and medical practices.
This waste type could potentially cause harm to either the environment, animals or human health. For this reason, it is vital that low grade clinical waste is disposed of appropriately and in a compliant manner that ensures it is separated from general waste streams.
Common types of low grade clinical waste
Types of waste classified as low grade clinical that are regularly disposed of at Canford Recycling Centre include:
- Incontinence pads
