Clinical waste for businesses and domestic
Clinical waste includes drugs, pharmaceutical products and any waste which poses a threat of infection to humans.
Clinical waste is always collected in special yellow bags marked 'Clinical Waste' to ensure it does not get mixed with normal domestic waste. You should request that clinical waste is specially collected, not just put in the general waste.
Examples of Clinical Waste include:
- human or animal tissue
- blood or other bodily fluids including items used to dispose of urine, faeces and other bodily secretions. This includes disposable bed pans or liners, incontinence pads, stoma bags and urine containers
- drugs or other pharmaceutical products
- swabs or dressings
- syringes, needles or other sharp instruments
