Drugs & Medicines Alert - Medicines Waste Bin

18 August 2017

Medicines AlertMessage sent on behalf of Jeanette Ferguson, Senior Pharmacy Technician

Dear Colleagues,

Please all be aware of an alert regarding medicines waste bins.

As you will read in the alert, the Bio bin boxes that are currently used to dispose of non-hazardous pharmaceutical waste e.g. broken ampoules, are no longer being used. They are being replaced with blue lidded ridged bins, as shown in the alert.  

If you have any queries on this, please email the Medicines Team – medicines@secamb.nhs.uk
