We are reaching a conclusion with a project we have been doing for Staffordshire CC, Newcastle-under-Lyme BC and Staffordshire Moorlands DC to produce an information and resources pack on how to deal with clinical waste. This should be available in the next month or so.
Many local authorities collect offensive waste as clinical waste, which could be collected in the normal domestic collections and incur unnecessary cost. One of the local authorities in the partnership that trailed this process now no longer collects any clinical waste and makes a considerable saving.
The pack will contains information about the project and advice on how to implement it in a Waste Collection Authority area. Sample letters and forms will be provided as will MS Office files on the resources CD.
We have developed the copy and content of the packs and produced all the martial for the partnership to send out.
