The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) has launched a consultation on the storage and treatment of healthcare waste. All those who collect, transport, store, treat and dispose of healthcare waste are being encouraged to respond.
The consultation is linked to new guidance designed to help operators understand and meet their compliance obligations, and ensure waste is managed in a way that minimises pollution of the environment and harm to human health.
The consultation is open until 29 April 2022.
