Spring clean - Dump the junk month

In support of a much-needed Spring Clean of our sites, the Estates team would like to offer the availability of either a skip or by arrangement, a man with a van, to collect all unwanted items at each location.

To ensure we do not dispose of perfectly recyclable items, such as furniture, we will be issuing labels via our Clinical Waste Drivers to enable colleagues to identify these two main waste streams, namely:

  • Items for disposal
  • Items for recycling

Once sorted and labelled, the Estates team will arrange for the waste / recyclables to be collected from each site.

All serviceable furniture and equipment will be catalogued and stored for reuse, which will be reviewed for suitable items when requests for furniture are made either through the MICAD job requesting system, or emails to EstatesWaste@eastamb.nhs.uk .  

No collections will be made until all the items have been collected together, as our waste management company will not attend sites and search or clear out rooms / store cupboards without our staff first confirming that the waste streams have been separated.

This service is being made immediately available after the Easter Weekend (Tuesday, 23rd April) and will run for a full four weeks, so please take the opportunity to review what you have that you don’t need and they will do the rest!
