Initial Medical is one of only a few UK companies currently providing waste disposal for used lateral flow testing kits (COVID-19 tests).

Initial Medical is providing dedicated clear waste bags to customers for all used lateral flow testing kits, with the option of internal containers and external wheelie bins depending on the service required. It is also offering a safe and highly efficient collection and disposal service specifically for this type of waste.

Lateral flow testing kits have been deemed chemical waste by the Department of Health, meaning that they require disposal by incineration in order to protect people’s health and the environment. With the vast majority of waste disposal and treatment centres across the UK currently at capacity due to the extra PPE waste being generated, Initial Medical has secured additional capacity at several disposal sites, to ensure it can help to meet the anticipated demand for the disposal of used lateral flow test kits.

No matter what industry or type of business you’re in, if you are utilising lateral flow testing kits to provide COVID-19 testing for your workforce, find out how Initial Medical could support you with the safe and essential disposal of used lateral flow tests.
