Aesthetics Waste
Recycling & Removal

In the beauty and aesthetics industry, a diverse array of waste materials are generated, spanning from the everyday to the clinical, due to a broad spectrum of treatments like Swedish massages and Botox injections. Managing this waste responsibly is crucial for safeguarding human health and preserving the environment. This includes everything from the careful segregation and secure storage to the proper disposal of all waste types.

Businesses such as clinics and salons offering aesthetic treatments need appropriate disposal solutions for various waste streams. This encompasses sharps, like needles used in microblading, to consumables, such as waxing strips and protective gloves. Waste King is dedicated to ensuring that these establishments maintain a safe and healthy environment for their staff, clientele, and the community through effective waste management practices.

Effortless Recycling Solutions

Aesthetics Waste

Every aesthetic treatment, regardless of its nature, generates some form of waste that necessitates proper handling. This could range from something as simple as a pair of gloves used during a waxing session to more critical items like unused Botox injections. A significant portion of this waste falls under the category of clinical waste, which is not permissible for disposal alongside regular trash due to its potential health risks.

Defined by the Controlled Waste Regulations Act 2012, clinical waste encompasses a broad spectrum of materials, including but not limited to, human or animal tissue, blood, bodily fluids, excretions, pharmaceuticals, medical instruments such as swabs, dressings, syringes, needles, and any other sharp objects. These materials pose a potential hazard if not properly neutralised before disposal.

Appropriately segregating your aesthetic treatment waste using designated bins or bags is crucial for safeguarding both your staff and clients from possible contamination. Moreover, it ensures that the waste is appropriately managed to prevent environmental pollution. Neglecting proper disposal practices can lead to hefty penalties for your establishment.

Transforming Aesthetic Waste

Types of aesthetic Waste

We recognise that every aesthetic and beauty treatment generates some form of waste, ranging from seemingly innocuous items like gloves to more complex disposables like tools used in liposuction. Classified predominantly as clinical or healthcare waste due to their contact with bodily fluids and parts, these items must be meticulously managed according to the Department of Health and Social Care’s colour-coded system. This system ensures that all aesthetic waste is segregated and stored in appropriately coloured bins or bags, facilitating responsible disposal. It’s crucial for practitioners to familiarise themselves with the correct disposal bins based on the services they offer: orange for clinical infectious waste, purple for cytotoxic and cytostatic waste, and yellow for highly infectious clinical waste.

Specifically, orange bins or bags are designated for clinical infectious waste, including items like wipes, gloves, dressings, bandages, and aprons that come into contact with potentially infectious substances. Sharps, such as needles, syringes, knives, and scalpels, must be placed in correspondingly coloured sharps bins to prevent contamination. Purple bins or bags are reserved for cytotoxic and cytostatic waste, notably used in treatments involving Botulinum toxin (Botox). This category requires incineration to prevent harmful exposure to humans and wildlife. All materials used in Botox applications, including syringes, gloves, and any other tools in contact with the toxin, fall under this category.

Lastly, yellow bins or bags are allocated for the disposal of highly infectious clinical waste, which must also be incinerated due to its potential to carry infectious diseases. This category includes items such as dressings, wipes, bandages, and gloves that have been in contact with infectious agents. The differentiation between yellow and orange waste management protocols underscores the importance of preventing the spread of infectious diseases, including Hepatitis B, C, and HIV, by ensuring that waste from aesthetic treatments is handled with the utmost care and responsibility.

The importance of
aesthetics waste management

We understand the critical importance of managing aesthetic waste safely, efficiently, and responsibly. Every clinic has an obligation under Section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 to ensure proper waste management. This encompasses appropriate storage, removal, and disposal practices.

Failing to adhere to these regulations can lead to considerable penalties, putting your business at risk. Moreover, mishandling aesthetic waste not only jeopardises the health of staff, clients, and the community due to potential exposure to hazardous and infectious materials but also contributes to environmental pollution when such waste is improperly disposed of in landfills.

Waste King is committed to providing solutions that uphold the highest standards of waste management, safeguarding your business, people, and the planet.

My wife booked a van to collect some building/garden rubbish, we got a phone call to let us know when they were 20 minutes away. Tom and Mo were brilliant, even the bits I thought would be to large or heavy were taken before I knew it, nothing was too much trouble and all done with a smile, will definitely use Wast King in the future.
