PPE Waste Collections
Need a safe and straightforward disposal solution to PPE waste during the COVID-19 pandemic? Our PPE collections service was designed to do just that.
PPE disposal services
PPE stands for Personal Protective Equipment and includes items like face masks and disposable gloves.
To keep your staff and customers protected, and to avoid masks polluting our environment, PPE needs to be handled separately and responsibly by professional PPE disposal services. You can find out more about the latest DEFRA guidelines on PPE Waste here.
Visitors and staff simply drop any used masks or gloves into one of our self-contained PPE boxes. Once it’s full, the box is easily fastened – without the need to touch or remove the sack after filling for safe PPE disposal. Book a free collection and we’ll take care of the rest.
As part of our dedicated PPE collection service, PPE boxes and sacks are taken for incineration in line with the Offensive Waste guidelines.

To avoid single-use items, why not try a re-useable face mask? We love these stylish fabric PPE face masks on Etsy.

According to WWF, 10 million single-use masks could enter our oceans every month if just 1% of masks are disposed of incorrectly.
Businesses can now easily and responsibly dispose of face masks, gloves and other forms of single-use personal protective equipment (PPE), thanks to our dedicated collections service.
We know that being COVID-secure is really important for all of our customers, and ensuring that PPE waste is handled separately from other waste streams should be a key consideration within any risk assessment.
