Industry innovation that brings you results

Innovation is at the heart of what we do at Cliniwaste, and our team are passionate about pioneering a more sustainable and eco-friendly method of clinical waste management for the good of the environment and industry. Our solution mindset enables us to innovate ways to improve the industry and the management and treatment of clinical waste.

Gone are the days of outdated clinical waste segregation; when anatomical waste was colour coded with green-lidded containers rather than red for example – many industry members may not remember this process. Correctly colour coding clinical waste ensures it is segregated properly before treatment and what can be treated is not unnecessarily incinerated and vice versa. For the benefit of the environment, we value compliance with correct waste segregation and colour coding to ensure we can alternatively treat what waste we can.


Safe segregation avoids unnecessary disposal

In partnership with SERCO, we were responsible for the first use of colour coding to segregate NHS wastes, and we carry our high value of waste segregation through our processes to this day. Combining our passions for innovation and sustainability, we ensure waste is properly segregated at source to avoid unnecessary disposal and incineration. These changes were implemented rapidly UK-wide into NHS establishments and other healthcare facilities.

Cliniwaste also delivers training and education to Scotland’s NHS so that segregation can be carried out consistently across its sites. Our team of professionals visit hospitals and other NHS sites to educate staff such as porters, nurses and doctors on the safe handling and management of their clinical wastes.


Training and education for clinical waste producers

Cliniwaste continuously develops itself within the industry as pioneers of education and training within hospitals. You can benefit from training and education in how to segregate your waste and learn how to be as eco-friendly as possible to achieve zero-waste strategies, ensuring waste is coherently segregated properly and the benefits of doing so are understood.
