Cytotoxic and Cytostatic Purple Waste Bags

Purple bags are used to store cytotoxic and cytostatic waste. These types of clinical waste bags can hold both infectious and non-infectious waste that’s contaminated with cytotoxic and cytostatic medicines. As the cytostatic and cytotoxic waste bag colour is purple, this makes it easy to separate and distinguish different types of clinical waste and avoid cross-contamination.

A cytotoxic and cytostatic waste bag can be used to store:

  • Blister packs
  • Medicinal vials
  • Patches
  • Disposable garments (contaminated with cytotoxic and/or cytostatic medicines)
  • Gloves, PPE, and wipes (contaminated with cytotoxic and/or cytostatic medicines)

Please note – only cytotoxic and cytostatic waste can go into these bags

Why do I need cytotoxic 
and cytostatic waste bags?

Any business that produces cytotoxic and cytostatic waste is responsible for its safe and secure disposal. As it’s potentially hazardous and clinical waste, you have both a legal and moral responsibility to ensure the proper storage, removal, and disposal process is followed. Using purple cytotoxic and cytostatic waste bags helps ensure appropriate storage of such waste.

After collection, any waste consisting of – or contaminated with cytotoxic and/or cytostatic products – will be incinerated.

Hospitals, care homes, and even laboratories are some of the main organisations that may produce cytotoxic and cytostatic waste and require purple bags for storage. It also helps you separate different clinical waste types to ensure only cytotoxic and cytostatic waste is kept together before collection by a licensed waste carrier.
