- Clinical (infectious) waste - bandages and dressings - Service users are supplied with the appropriate coloured or marked sacks to store the infectious clinical waste in, in readiness for the once weekly collection service. Your GP, nurse or Social Worker should return a referral via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
