Children’s Nursery Waste

One of the by-products of operating a children’s nursery is that it will generate offensive waste – which is a type of clinical/ hazardous waste.

The Controlled Waste Regulations 1992 defines ‘offensive waste’ as waste which is unpleasant and may offend the senses. Examples of offensive waste include:

  • Nappy wastesign

  • Incontinence pads

  • Protective garments and outer dressings that haven’t been contaminated with bodily fluids

This type of waste needs to be stored in bins or bags colour-coded yellow and black. It’s always put in a different bin from that used for bloodied dressings, for example.

As the Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005 point out, it’s your duty - as a producer of this waste - to segregate all hazardous waste before it’s collected. This means putting these hazardous materials in specialised receptacles. And, of course, you must never mix hazardous and non-hazardous waste

Since there are Regulations that relate to the waste your activities are producing, there’s a fair amount of paperwork involved in the process.

That’s where a professional, competent, Environment Agency licenced waste collection company – such as Waste King – can provide both a fast and efficient waste collection service and also provide you with the required paperwork. This includes Duty of Care certification as well as a consignment note detailing the type of waste; its European Waste Catalogue (EWC) code (so that the company that collects the waste knows how to treat it); the quantity collected; the waste’s components; the hazard code, and container type.

Waste Kingcan give you advice and guidance so that you can get the most reliable, efficient and cost-effective service when it comes to collecting and disposing all clinical/ hazardous and, indeed, any waste. So, contact us on:
