Effortless Recycling Solutions

What is cytotoxic
and cytostatic waste?

At Waste King, we specialise in the responsible disposal of various hazardous waste types, including cytotoxic and cytostatic materials. These substances can pose significant environmental and health risks if not handled correctly. Our expertise covers two primary categories:

  1. Medicinal Products: These include medications that are toxic, carcinogenic, mutagenic, or harmful to reproduction, often used in treating cancer or similar conditions. The waste encompasses expired, unused, or leftover medications in various forms such as tablets, liquids, and creams. Given their potential to kill or inhibit cell growth, it’s crucial that they are disposed of with care to avoid environmental contamination and health hazards.
  2. Contaminated Waste: Items that have come into contact with cytotoxic and cytostatic medications also fall into this category due to the high risks associated with these substances. This includes, but is not limited to, protective gear like gloves or garments used by healthcare professionals during the handling of such medications.

Examples of Cytotoxic and Cytostatic Waste:

  • Medications specifically designed for cytotoxic and cytostatic treatment
  • Hormonal medications
  • Contaminated gloves and wipes
  • Disposable garments and personal protective equipment (PPE) that are contaminated
  • Contaminated sharps, including needles, syringes, and scalpels
  • Blister packs containing medication
  • Medicinal vials
  • Contaminated bandages and patches
  • Immunosuppressive drugs
  • Certain antiviral medications and antibiotics
  • Waste related to cosmetic procedures involving cytotoxic substances

Waste King is committed to ensuring the safe and compliant disposal of these hazardous materials, protecting both public health and the environment.
