George’s daughter has profound, multiple learning impairments. She is doubly incontinent and uses many disposable items of medical equipment. As part of her care package, the council collects all bodily and medical waste. Now, the collection of hazardous waste has reduced from weekly to fortnightly, and the volume collected has reduced by 50 per cent. Specialist waste bags are no longer supplied, so the family is required to supply them. Bodily waste now goes into black bin bags mixed with household waste, which is sent to landfill.
