A new clinical waste transfer and treatment facility has been launched in Swindon, Wiltshire.

Permitted to accept a wide range of medical and hazardous waste streams from the healthcare sector, the site has the annual capacity to process up to 12,000 tonnes of medical waste.

Waste is processed through an onsite heat treatment facility or enters the transfer station where it is segregated, bulked and stored for onward treatment.

This site was commissioned to accommodate the substantial increase in demand for services within the Oxfordshire and Wiltshire regions and is designed to align with new Environmental Agency legislation requiring clinical waste to be safely managed within buildings.

Lynne King, Healthcare Divisional Director, commented: “This new facility aligns with the growing demand in the area. Local customers will now see their waste being transferred and treated at the new Swindon site.”
