Clinical & biological waste

Clinical and biological waste is regularly collected from 15 different locations across the University’s Camperdown, Darlington, Cumberland and Camden campuses. In the majority of cases clinical waste is collected weekly or fortnightly.

If you are commencing a new research project or teaching activity that will generate clinical or biological waste, contact Work Health & Safety Services to discuss the arrangements for waste disposal.
