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 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. 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. 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.

Ready to get started? You can now buy First Mile PPE collection boxes and premium indoor bins directly from our online shop.

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