Orange Clinical Waste Bags for Infectious Waste

At Waste King, we specialise in providing solutions that ensure the safe and efficient disposal of infectious clinical waste, helping you fulfill both your legal obligations and ethical commitment to environmental conservation. Our orange clinical waste bags are designed to segregate infectious waste from non-infectious and other types of clinical refuse, minimising the risk of contamination. These bags are ideal for the storage of various infectious wastes that can be treated instead of incinerated, marking a significant difference from yellow clinical waste bags, which are intended for immediate incineration.

The use of orange clinical waste bags is essential for items contaminated with infectious materials, including:

  • Bandages
  • Masks
  • Dressings and wipes
  • Gloves
  • Aprons

It’s important to note that only infectious clinical waste should be placed in these orange bags.

Managing infectious waste responsibly is critical to safeguarding human health and protecting the environment. As a business, you bear the responsibility to ensure that any infectious waste generated is handled and disposed of properly. Waste King is here to support you in this effort by providing timely deliveries of orange infectious waste bags across the UK, ensuring your organisation can maintain the highest standards of hygiene and safety.

Clinical Waste Solutions

Why do I need
orange infectious waste bags?

If your business generates waste contaminated with blood or bodily fluids that are heavily infected, it is essential to use orange waste bags. This category of waste includes items such as gloves, wipes, aprons, and more, which require treatment before incineration and disposal. This is distinct from the yellow clinical waste stream, which does not require such treatment.

Waste King emphasises that there is both a legal and ethical obligation for businesses to correctly manage and dispose of infectious waste. By utilizing orange waste bags, you ensure that clinical waste is appropriately segregated. This not only prevents cross-contamination but also ensures that only waste requiring treatment is sent to specialized facilities. This efficient segregation helps avoid the unnecessary treatment of clinical waste, leading to cost savings for your business.

clinical waste bags

At Waste King, we recognise the critical importance of proper clinical waste management for maintaining health and safety standards. Each colour-coded clinical waste bag is designated for specific types of waste, ensuring effective treatment and disposal. Here’s a guide to understanding the various types of clinical waste bags and their respective uses:

  • Cytotoxic and Cytostatic Waste: Managed with purple waste bags, these are designated for waste materials that are toxic to cells, requiring careful handling.
  • Anatomical Waste: Red clinical waste bags are used for anatomical materials, including body parts and organs, necessitating secure and respectful disposal.
  • Clinical Non-infectious Waste: Yellow and black clinical waste bags are designed for non-infectious materials, ensuring they are handled separately from infectious waste.
  • Infectious Waste: Orange clinical waste bags are for infectious items that require treatment prior to disposal, ensuring they are handled with the utmost caution to prevent the spread of infection.
  • Highly Infectious Hazardous Waste: For waste that poses a significant infection risk, yellow clinical waste bags are utilised to highlight the need for stringent containment and treatment.
  • Dental (Amalgam) Waste: White clinical waste bags are specifically for dental waste, such as amalgam, to prevent mercury exposure and environmental contamination.

Understanding and using the correct waste bag for each type of clinical waste is essential for safety and compliance. Waste King is committed to providing the expertise and resources necessary for effective clinical waste management.

Top service
My wife booked a van to collect some building/garden rubbish, we got a phone call to let us know when they were 20 minutes away. Tom and Mo were brilliant, even the bits I thought would be to large or heavy were taken before I knew it, nothing was too much trouble and all done with a smile, will definitely use Wast King in the future.
