Running a beauty clinic is an adventure. Besides tending to your client’s requirements, you must also ensure your clinic meets the local legislative guidelines. These guidelines also include waste management and disposal.
This usually consists of food waste, hair, nails, specific containers, and fabrics that cannot be recycled. This waste can be disposed of using an ordinary black-coloured waste bag.
The Clinical waste consists of equipment that may have directly interacted with a person and may potentially have skin cells or body fluids on it. This is usually separated into the following groups:
This includes equipment that may have been used on/by someone who has an infection.
Infectious waste must always be disposed of in an orange-coloured bag.
Offensive Waste can include waste products that have had no interaction with an infected person.
UK legislature, states this waste must be placed in a black bag with yellow stripes.
Please note that your clinical waste should never include any sharp objects.
All the sharp objects that you use in the clinic need to be classified and then disposed of as per the following classification:
Contains sharp objects with no chemical contamination, such as blades, tattoo needles, etc.
This is for sharp objects contaminated with medicines or chemicals such as syringes, pigmentation pens, etc.
This contains all sharp objects contaminated with chemicals that can be classified as cytotoxic/cytostatic such as syringes from Botox treatments or hormonal therapy.
All your wastes that can be recycled belong in a separate bin. This can include paper and cardboard products, cosmetic containers, bottles, and more. Your contractor will provide you with specialised recycling bags for disposing this waste regularly.

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.
