On farm bottle and sharp disposal

Dec 5, 2019

Safe disposal of medicine bottles and sharps is important in safeguarding the environment and personal on farm.

It is also a legal requirement for your farm assurance. Medicines that require disposal include:  

Medicines past their sell by date  

Opened medicines not used within the specified timescale 

Medicines stored incorrectly

We now provide farms with yellow disposal bins: 60lt yellow disposal bin, including disposal, costs £89.50 + VAT. 30lt yellow disposal bin, including disposal, costs £50.70 + VAT. If bottles arrive at the practice that are not in a yellow bin we will now charge £1.60 per litre for disposal. If you would like to order a yellow bin, please call the practice.
