Clinical waste collections

On 1 April the single new council for North Yorkshire launched replacing Scarborough Borough Council and other local authorites in North Yorkshire.

To find your Councillor or to view minutes, meetings and agendas please visit the North Yorkshire Council website.

Collection and handling of clinical waste.

We collect clinical waste in two ways, the first way is through the use of sharps boxes for residents who self medicate using needles, and the second method is through yellow sacks, which is for other clinical waste, such as renal dialysis waste and other waste that poses a risk of infection.

Please note that we do not make clinical waste collections from commercial premises, including holiday parks.
