An Artist’s Impression of Viridor Facility
Viridor issued a statement today, with input from both NHSScotland and SEPA, regarding a contract for the treatment of Healthcare Waste at the Dunbar Incinerator (ERF Energy Recovery Facility).
This follows the withdrawal of services to NHSScotland which were previously supplied by Healthcare Environmental Services Ltd (HES).
Discussions with SEPA and the Scottish Government have been undertaken and all parties are aware that Viridor has not previously received this type of waste (and had no plans to do so) but requested Viridor’s assistance with a project of national importance. Viridor has been asked to assist NHSScotland as a short-term measure while its incoming contractor mobilises its services.
The type of waste the Dunbar ERF will receive from NHS Scotland would typically include: dressings, swabs, used PPE (personal protective equipment), wipes, nappies and incontinence pads. This waste stream specifically excludes: sharps (needles and other sharp instruments), anatomical waste, laboratory wastes and other specialist wastes such as hazardous pharmaceuticals and radioactive waste.
