Operating a pharmacy in the UK means you play a crucial role in the public healthcare system as an essential service provider. Additionally, pharmacies are among the least wasteful businesses, but any waste they do produce must be properly segregated and disposed of according to the regulations outlined in local legislation. Our easy waste management solutions ensure compliance, so you don’t have to worry. Our team of experts will guide you through waste segregation and schedule waste pick-up at your convenience.
Pharmacies and chemists generate different types of waste, such as hazardous and non hazardous waste. Expired or unused drugs, contaminated sharps (such as needles and syringes), and chemical products used for cleaning and disinfection are examples of hazardous waste. Packaging materials, paper, and plastics are examples of non-hazardous waste. The bins and bags used to dispose of pharmacies and chemists are blue-lidded bins, purple-lidded bins, and black bags.
Pharmacies and chemists produce a variety of waste streams, including clinical waste, hazardous waste, and non-hazardous waste. The improper disposal of pharmacies’ and chemists’ waste can endanger human health and the environment. There are possible chances of skin irritation, respiratory problems, climate change, environmental issues and explosive risk because of reactive chemicals.

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.
Waste management in pharmacies and chemists refers to the proper disposal and handling of waste generated in pharmaceutical and medical facilities. It entails properly disposing of expired or unused drugs, syringes, needles, and other medical waste.
Some types of chemist and chemist debris, such as packaging materials, can be recycled. Pharmaceutical and hazardous waste, on the other hand, require specialised disposal procedures and cannot be recycled.
Consumers should not flush unused or expired pharmaceuticals down the toilet or discard them. Instead, they should take them to a pharmacist or chemist for proper disposal.
