Hear from some of our happy customers

"NRC completed a full site audit and advised us on improvements we could make increasing recycling and reducing costs. They worked with our team to help everyone understand what we are trying to achieve. We have since invested in new equipment and the waste management process is much more efficient – and we now recycle over 90% of our waste. The NRC team are responsive and attend site whenever we need them."

Nationwide care home waste management services

Care home waste isn’t that different from domestic waste. However with the added volume, and extra risk posed by medical or hazardous waste, you’ll need a care home waste disposal service you can trust.

Around 60% of the waste produced in care homes is general municipal solid waste, which can go straight into your rubbish bin. Some of the other common waste types to come from care homes include:

  • Offensive waste
  • Pharmaceutical waste
  • Sanitary waste
  • Food waste
  • Clinical waste
  • Dry mixed recycling
  • Sharps waste
  • Confidential waste

Whether you manage one care home or multiple homes across the UK, we are perfectly positioned to manage each waste type from each site. It just makes sense to count on NRC for your care home waste disposal needs.
