Our Pharmaceutical container range are coloured coded Blue both base and Lid to clearly differentiate from the sharps range of containers we offer, from self-locking final closure lids conforming to British safety standards to clear labelling and container sizes from 5liters to 60litres we can offer a Pharmaceutical container to meet all requirements.

Our range of Pharmaceutical containers have been designed for the safe collection, transportation and disposal of medicinal waste in original packaging. The correct documentation is essential when disposing transporting and disposing of all pharmaceutical waste, it’s our job to ensure we provide all the documentation required to prove your legal compliance.

When we collect your hazardous material, you’ll receive a consignment note detailing the type of waste, its EWC code, quantity, hazard code and container type. As the producer of waste you must provide us with a premises code provided by the Environment Agency (unless exempt). You will also need to register your site annually; this is a service we can offer so you don’t have to worry.
