Care and Nursing Home Waste Collection and Disposal
Grundon’s healthcare waste management service provides a tailor made solution for care and nursing homes, including the collection, secure and traceable treatment and final disposal for the full range of healthcare waste.
We have been disposing of the healthcare sector’s waste for over 25 years. Throughout that time our expert staff have helped our customers to understand increasingly complicated legislation, ensuring that they remain fully compliant and provide guidance on current best practice.
How can Grundon help you?
Your Duty of Care obligations are paramount to our healthcare waste management package.
We understand that the need to be fully compliant with all relevant legislation, whilst balancing demands to improve environmental performance and get the best value for money, is no simple task.
That is why we provide a total waste management solution for care and nursing homes, which is tailored to suit your requirements.
Our knowledgeable and friendly staff are here to provide practical advice on topics such as correct waste segregation, increasing your recycling performance and to assist with waste pre-acceptance audits. We are dedicated to helping you achieve an outstanding CQC compliance.
Our healthcare waste management package offers a bespoke range of cost-effective services for the collection, treatment and disposal of all waste streams you may generate, including offensive, infectious and pharmaceutical wastes.
Our service can also incorporate the collection, recycling and disposal of hazardous wastes (including fluorescent lights, batteries, cleaning chemicals and aerosols), as well as mixed recycling, residual, confidential and food wastes.
The benefit of having all of these waste streams collected by one provider is that you have a single point of contact, ensuring that you have clear and effective communication with a dedicated contract manager at all times.
The design of this bespoke collection service will include the correct frequency of collections to suit the volumes and types of waste that you produce.
Value added service
At Grundon, we are committed to working in partnership with you to promote recycling and educate your staff. The aim is to raise awareness of both the financial and environmental benefits that effective waste management can have on your operation and its sustainability.
We conduct an analysis of your waste streams to identify the volume and types of waste generated. Once the analysis is complete and any recyclable materials have been identified, we design a bespoke healthcare waste recycling collection service that best fits your operation.
We then provide you with practical colour coded and clearly labelled bags and containers for the correct segregation and storage of your waste streams.
At Grundon we’re proud to be different. We own and operate an extensive fleet of certified CarbonNeutral® purpose-built collection vehicles, meaning that every time one of our vehicles collects your waste, or a member of our team visits you, not only will the journey be CarbonNeutral® but it will also avoid adding to your own carbon footprint.
We also own and operate our own industry-leading recycling and energy recovery facilities, underlining our commitment to provide the most sustainable and environmentally friendly waste management service. Our state-of-the-art Energy from Waste facility diverts over 410,000 tonnes of general and offensive waste from landfill each year, generating enough electricity to power 50,000 homes.
We report back to you on the volumes of waste collected, recycling volumes and the disposal methods used. This ensures that you are kept fully aware of your performance – this is critical in helping you to become a sustainable operation – both financially and environmentally.
