Anyone with hygiene waste should apply for a collection. If you are a Natural UK hygiene customer, you can also register your details to receive purple bags. Your current collections will not be affected until we write to you to advise of any further changes.
Our hygiene waste collections, include items used to dispose of human urine, faeces and other bodily secretions or excretions as follows. Wherever possible, any items should be emptied, before being bagged:
- Disposable bed pans & liners, incontinence pads, bed and chair pads
- Colostomy/stoma bags, catheter bags and urine bottles
- Plastic gloves & disposable aprons
It does not include sanitary product waste, nappies, or pet waste, this should be double bagged and put in your black bags. There is no charge for this service, once we've received your application your purple bags will be delivered within 10 working days. We will contact you to let you know your collection day.
