Top service
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.

How should sharps waste be stored before collection?2024-03-03T21:20:18+00:00

Sharps waste must be stored in rigid, puncture-resistant, leak-proof, and sealable containers. These containers should be labeled clearly as hazardous to prevent accidental handling and ensure safety before disposal.
