Focus on Care and Residential Homes  


Managing Waste in a Care Setting 

Managing waste in a care or nursing home can be a challenge – lots of different waste streams – recycling; food waste; general waste; washroom; clinical and hazardous waste are all likely to be present and need to be disposed of correctly and in line with regulations. 

Making sure these are disposed of appropriately is important not only to the health, safety and hygiene of staff and residents, but also in order to comply with regulations.  Check out our guide to managing waste in a care or residential home.
