Secure Confidential Medical Waste Disposal

GP and Medical Centre confidential waste collection and disposal

Medical facilities have a moral and legal responsibility to protect patients, staff and the environment by properly disposing of medical records and waste.

From clinical material and sharps to medical records and confidential document disposal, GP centres and other medical facilities must follow their state-enforced guidelines to maintain data security and patient safety. Those who fail to comply with these regulations can face severe penalties, not to mention cause stress to the victims with leaked private information.

Ace Waste has provided sustainable clinical and confidential waste disposal solutions to QLD and VIC since 1987. Our experienced team is well-versed in all state and industry laws and can safely destroy personal documentation and hazardous materials.

What is confidential medical waste? 

Confidential medical waste is any documentation or item that includes sensitive or private information, such as:

  • Medical records
  • Incident or health reports
  • Compact discs (CDs)
  • X-ray film or other medical imaging
  • Patient information forms and any other related items

In Australia, both public and private medical facilities must respect individuals’ right to data privacy. Ace Waste can ensure that your clinic follows the principles outlined in the 2014 amendment to the Australian Privacy Act, protecting patients from harm and your business from costly infringements.

We have provided seamless waste management services to healthcare facilities large and small, from public hospitals and pathology clinics to private GP centres. Using our many years of experience, we guarantee to manage, collect, and destroy all confidential documentation and material.


What other types of waste are found in medical centres?

Depending on what kind of medical facility you manage or work in, there are generally four types of waste found:

  • General (non-hazardous plastics, paper, liquids)
  • Clinical or infectious (human tissue and any tools or material contaminated with blood or other bodily fluids, including used swaps, needles, scalpels etc.)
  • Hazardous (toxic or flammable liquids, solids, chemicals and unused sharps or glassware)
  • Radioactive (any radioactive material or by-products of nuclear technology)

Clinical, hazardous and radioactive waste must be closely managed and collected by a professional, licensed waste service. Ace Waste has the experience, capability and facilities to collect and destroy all types of medical waste in compliance with all government and environmental standards.

We also stock sturdy, secure medical waste bins to safely dispose of all clinical, hazardous and confidential waste. Click on the waste bin range image below to see our full range today.
