Getting rid of hazardous waste safely

Household clinical waste

If you are a resident in Harrow who administers medication at home, it is important that your clinical waste is collected and disposed of safely.

Essentia community services provide the collection of clinical waste for the London Borough of Harrow.

Your clinician and Essentia community services will be able to advise you on the type of waste which is classified as clinical waste.

Items not classed as clinical waste

Incontinence clothing and pads are not classed as clinical waste and can be safely disposed of in your green/grey waste bin.
