Domestic clinical waste collection service

Adur & Worthing Council Services offer a free weekly clinical waste collection for domestic properties. We can collect:

  • Bandages
  • Incontinence pads
  • Needles
  • Stoma bags
  • Sharps

None of these items can be put in your normal household waste or taken to tips (household waste recycling sites).

or you can request a clinical waste collection for domestic properties by phone:

01903 221007 - this is an automated line

Clinical Waste is collected weekly on a set day and we can provide you a sharps box or bag as required which we will replace each time when we collect your clinical waste.


Babies nappies take up a lot of space in your refuse wheelie bin and are also environmentally unfriendly.

Have you considered trying the Real Nappy Initiative?
