Managing pharmaceutical waste can be tricky. TCW (Trikon Clinical Waste) has the expertise to simplify the complicated process when it comes to the disposal of pharmaceutical waste UK.
We, at TCW, provide end-to-end solutions depending on the waste generated from a particular facility. Pharmaceutical waste management processes are carried out by TCW professionals with a perfect plan that is cost-effective.
Pharmaceutical waste can be defined as unused, contaminated, expired, spilt, or damaged drugs. It also contains non-drug waste such as gloves, vials, masks, bottles, tubes, and many more materials. If medicines are not used and not returned, or have expired, then it needs to be discarded as waste. In-house open medicine in vials and ampules can potentially trigger mishaps, which is why they too are categorised under the pharmaceutical waste category.
Pharmaceutical waste bins are available in yellow and purple colours. Yellow bins are used for non hazardous pharmaceutical waste, while purple ones are for hazardous ones. The colour coding of the bins is one thing that separates the waste bins and helps the public identify the level of threat. If you are a facility that has pharmacy products that are deemed to be thrown away because of their expiration or contamination, then you need these bins.

Any pharmaceutical waste generated poses a major threat to the environment or the public. Apart from this, there is also a chance that the waste can be collected and misused to harm a person or a community, thus posing a major health risk.
Yes, pharmaceutical waste can be hazardous, but not all. It is one umbrella under which medicines, hazardous waste, and solid waste are all included. If waste includes bacteria or any waste from infected patients, then it can be hazardous.
The frequency of waste collection is three times a day. This will ensure a minimum threat to the public, lowering exposure to any kind of waste. The non-hazardous part of the waste is put in yellow-lipped bins, while the hazardous part is put in purple-lipped bins.

I have recently started using their service for Imaan Ltd. I found them professional, efficient and very promptly the accounts were set up. We have taken their service for sanitary waste and sharps waste for our 12 sites across the UK. So far we are very pleased with their service provided.
I've heard a lot about Trikon, and I'd like to say that I've had a great experience with them. The key thing is to communicate and then you will be surprised at how helpful Trikon can be. We had a couple of minor issues with the start of the contract but nothing that Trikon and the team didn't sort out quickly. They have been more than flexible during the last 3 months of C-19 so no complaints there. To be honest their service so far has been excellent and far far better than Biffa ever was. Give them a chance, communicate and you will be very happy. Good value service and very helpful.
Excellent service for all our branches. From our personal experience, Trikon has always delivered in a timely manner and excellent price. Way better than having Veolia, Biffa and Citron Hygiene.
