An additional £60,000 order was placed, and will delivered directly to front-line staff in Daisy Hill Hosptial and Craigavon Area Hospital, the company said.
Aiden Doherty, commercial director at Re-Gen said: “It was important to use that we did our bit to support the health and wellbeing of these incredible individuals who are putting themselves in harms way, to provide the very best care for their patients.”

The company says its wheeled bins are quickly becoming popular across the UK and European clinical waste stream industries.

System launched to help waste firms manage costs
