Anatomical Waste Bags – Red Clinical Waste Bags

To dispose of any kind of anatomical waste you can use red clinical waste bags. As a business you have a legal and ethical responsibility to ensure all body parts, blood, bodily fluids, and other types of anatomical waste are stored and disposed of safely and securely. An anatomical waste bag and bin helps ensure compliance.

You can use an anatomical waste bag to safely store:

  • Organs
  • Body parts
  • Blood bags
  • Tissue samples
  • Contaminated materials (PPE, bandages, swabs)

Please note – only anatomical waste can go into this red clinical waste bag

Anatomical waste disposal bags are red and can be used with red lidded anatomical waste bins to easily separate from other types of clinical waste. Arrange delivery of anatomical waste bags and bins to your business or learn more about anatomical waste disposal.

What colour bag does 
anatomical waste go in?

Anatomical waste goes in a red clinical waste bag. These are used to store waste body parts, organs, blood, and tissue samples – including both hazardous and non-hazardous waste. Red clinical waste bags are often used to store waste produced during surgical procedures before collection and disposal.

Why do I need an 
anatomical waste bag?

Hospitals, funeral homes, dentists, and many other organisations that deal with anatomical waste need to store and dispose of it safely. The red waste stream is used for this kind of clinical waste, which includes using anatomical waste bags and bins. Anatomical waste can be hazardous or non-hazardous, so safe storage is vital.

Once your anatomical waste is bagged up and collected, it’ll be transported to an appropriate facility and incinerated.

Using red clinical waste bags to store such waste on your premises before it’s collected helps your business uphold its legal responsibilities and keep your employees safe. It also makes it easier to keep different kinds of clinical waste separate, which reduces the chance of contamination for safe disposal.
