Reliable and Compliant Waste Management Services

In January 2021, the  UK Government announced the deployment of British-manufactured rapid lateral flow antigen tests to detect asymptomatic COVID-19 tests. This allowed private organisations to offer COVID-19 tests, with results coming back in just minutes. 

Axil is here to support your organisation with our waste management services, ensuring your compliance with the specific guidelines for handling and disposal of used COVID-19 tests. As with all types of clinical waste disposal, the exact rules and methods for handling used COVID tests and related medical waste depend on specific variables. 

  • If a COVID test is carried out at home, then tests and any associated waste can be safely placed in your general waste bin for collection as normal.
  • If the COVID tests are conducted in a commercial or public setting, such as a business, school, university, or other testing sites, then the used COVID test must be treated as hazardous waste. 

Government legislation stipulates that any clinical waste resulting from coronavirus tests cannot be disposed of in general waste bins or mixed recycling. All tests, associated equipment and PPE worn by staff and clinicians involved in administering the tests must be managed separately.

COVID-19 test waste must be separated and stored in dedicated sacks or containers and collected by a waste specialist.
