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.

PPE disposal

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.
