Clinical Waste is defined as any waste which is made up completely or partly of human or animal tissue including blood, body fluids, excretion, drugs or other pharmaceutical products, swabs or dressings, syringes, needles or other sharp instruments which have been used in a clinical environment.

Clinical Waste can originate from a wide variety of sources including medical, nursing, dental, veterinary, pharmaceutical or other practices. It may also come from enterprises or establishments involved in investigation treatment, teaching or research.
Because of its potential to infect or harm people or animals, the management of Clinical Waste is now subject to more stringent and rigorous regulation than ever.
What that means in practise is that the management and disposal of Clinical Waste is a job for professional operators. In other words people with the right expertise and resources including properly trained staff, purpose designed disposal systems and all necessary licence and consents.
