Clinical Waste

Wastes arising from medical, nursing, dental, veterinary, laboratory, pharmaceutical and other similar practices are all managed using Cleanaway’s medical and clinical waste systems.


Cleanaway provides clinical waste bins to manage sharps, human tissue waste, laboratory waste, animal waste, and waste resulting from dental, medical or veterinary research or treatment which has the potential to cause disease. Our clinical waste bins are lockable, yellow in colour, lined with yellow PVC plastic bags and accompanied by bin stickers to ensure clear identification and encourage compliance.
