Request a collection

We provide a free clinical waste collection service for residential properties within the Chelmsford area.

We have appointed the company Medisort to make the collections on our behalf.

They will collect:

  • human tissue
  • blood and other bodily fluids
  • swabs and dressings

They will only collect syringes, needles or other sharps if they are in a prescription empty sharps container. You can get an empty sharps container from your GP or other healthcare provider. You can then contact us to arrange collection.

If you need to dispose of incontinence waste, you can request an incontinence waste collection. 

How to request a collection

To request a clinical waste collection, you will need to contact us, providing your name, address and contact details.

Medisort will then contact you to tell you the outcome of your request and arrange details, such as how often they will make a collection.

Queries about existing collections

If you already receive a collection from Medisort and have a query or further request, you can contact them directly on 01903 719646.
