Caledonia Washrooms have always been active in the dentist’s sector with waste and washroom services. However, we have been heavily involved since the collapse of Healthcare Environmental in December 2018.
Due to the urgent and increased demand, we can now offer a full waste services package. This includes specialist waste collection.
One way for private dentist centres to save money is to separate the clinical waste from offensive waste. Plastic cups, vinyl gloves paper towels and medical packaging can all be classed as offensive waste instead of clinical waste.
With all waste, it is up to the originator of the waste to classify it correctly and to use the appropriate EWC (European Waste Code). We are only too happy to help if you are struggling. It should be noted that Gypsom Waste and/or Study Waste (EWC 18 01 04) should be collected in specific buckets. This waste is both heavy and can have sharp edges. Therefore, collecting in bags can be very messy!
