Orange Clinical Waste Bags for Infectious Waste

Orange clinical waste bags help separate infectious waste from both non-infectious and other types of clinical waste to avoid contamination. They’re used to safely store all sorts of infectious waste that can be treated rather than incinerated when it’s disposed. This is the main difference orange and yellow clinical waste bags – as yellow clinical waste can be incinerated immediately.

What are orange clinical bags used for? Anything contaminated with infectious waste, such as:

  • Bandages
  • Masks
  • Dressing and wipes
  • Gloves
  • Aprons

Please note – only infectious clinical waste can go into orange waste bags

Infectious waste can be harmful to both human health and the environment. As a business, it’s your legal and moral responsibility to ensure any you produce is stored and disposed of appropriately to protect your employees and the planet. Get started with delivery of orange infectious waste bags to your organisation, anywhere in the UK.

Collection Frequency:
One-off, daily, weekly, fortnightly, or ad hoc collection
Height – 26cm, Width – 22cm
Waste Type:
  • Clinical Waste

Why do I need 
orange infectious waste bags?

Your organisation will need orange waste bags if you produce waste contaminated with blood or bodily fluids that’s heavily infected. Heavy duty infectious clinical waste can include gloves, wipes, aprons, and more that needs treating before incineration and disposal – unlike the yellow clinical waste stream that does not need treating.

Your business has a legal and ethical responsibility to properly store and dispose of any infectious waste.

Using an orange waste bag helps keep your clinical waste separate. Alongside preventing contamination, this helps ensure only specific waste that needs treating goes to an appropriate facility. It can ensure your business doesn’t end up paying for unnecessary treatment of clinical waste, saving you money.
