UN-approved clinical waste container from post-consumer recycled resin

Daniels Healthcare, the UK market leader for sharps and clinical waste containers, has introduced the world’s first UN-approved clinical waste container made from post-consumer recycled resin (PCR) to the UK.

Made of responsibly sourced recycled plastic, the WIVA™ Infinity range of clinical waste containers provides a cost-effective and sustainable solution to the healthcare sector, while still meeting the highest standards in quality and safety.

The pioneering concept has already been introduced in The Netherlands and Belgium, with evidence suggesting that customers can reduce their equivalent Co2 footprint by 50% when switching to the WIVA™ Infinity range.

PCR resin is the recycled plastic waste created by consumers. When PCR resins are reused and transformed into new products, new fossil fuels are not required, which has positive environmental benefits.

It’s just a shame, don’t you think, that a UK company working with a trade mag to announce this new clinical waste container to the UK didn’t manage to create a yellow bin!
