Yellow Clinical Waste Bags for Highly Infectious Waste

At Waste King, we emphasise the importance of managing clinical waste with the utmost care to protect both public health and the environment. Yellow waste bags are specifically designed for the safe containment of infectious or potentially hazardous clinical waste, typically resulting from the treatment of patients with infectious conditions. This includes, but is not limited to, items that have been contaminated with infectious bodily fluids, such as:

  • Dressings and wipes
  • Bandages
  • Couch rolls
  • Gloves
  • Disposable garments

It’s crucial to note that only waste categorised as infectious should be disposed of in these yellow bags.

Improper handling, storage, or disposal of clinical waste poses significant risks to both human health and the environment, making it essential for businesses to adopt responsible waste management practices. By securely storing infectious waste in designated yellow bags, you contribute to a safer workplace and community.

Waste King provides a reliable delivery service for yellow clinical waste bags across the UK, ensuring your business has the necessary resources to manage hazardous waste effectively. Trust us to assist you in upholding the highest standards of environmental care and safety.

Why do I need
Yellow highly infectious waste bags?

At Waste King, we understand the critical importance of managing infectious clinical waste responsibly. If your organisation handles any type of infectious clinical waste, it is imperative to utilise yellow waste bags for storage within your premises. This practice is essential for maintaining segregation between various categories of clinical waste, ensuring that non-infectious and non-hazardous medical waste remains uncontaminated, thereby enabling proper recycling and disposal.

Given the potentially hazardous nature of highly infectious waste, its disposal is meticulously carried out through incineration, adhering to strict safety standards.

Moreover, it is both a legal and ethical obligation for your organisation to implement safe and appropriate measures for the storage and disposal of all highly infectious and hazardous clinical waste. This entails employing the correct types of hazardous waste bags and bins to secure such waste on your premises until it can be safely collected and disposed of. At Waste King, we are committed to supporting your efforts in upholding these critical responsibilities, ensuring a safer environment for all.

  • 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.

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.
