Handling veterinary waste

Handling veterinary waste

Veterinary waste consists of both hazardous and non-hazardous waste which must be segregated, classified, described, packaged, labeled and disposed of in line with regulatory requirements.

What the BVA has done

We have produced the BVA Good practice guide to handling veterinary waste in England and Wales, which is supported by the Environment Agency.

We have also produced posters for Northern Ireland and Scotland.

The guides aim to assist the veterinary profession in complying with waste regulations in their region. This web advice complements the guides.
