Yellow Clinical Waste Bags for Highly Infectious Hazardous Waste
Yellow waste bags are used to safely store all sorts of highly infectious and often hazardous clinical waste. This is usually any kind of waste produced after the treatment of infectious patients – such as gloves that get contaminated with bodily fluids. As a business, it’s your responsibility to ensure such waste is separated and stored securely.
Use yellow clinical waste bags to safely store items contaminated with infectious bodily fluids, such as:
- Dressing and wipes
- Couch roll
- Disposable garments
Please note – only infectious clinical waste can go into yellow waste bags
Infectious waste can often be harmful to both human health and the environment, as well as being potentially hazardous. Improper storage and disposal puts both employees and the environment at risk. Arrange delivery of yellow bags for clinical waste that’s potentially harmful to your business anywhere in the UK.

Why do I need
yellow waste bags?
If your organisation deals with any kind of infectious clinical waste, then you need to use yellow waste bags to store it on your premises. This helps keep different types of clinical waste separate. It should avoid contaminating any non-infectious clinical waste or non-hazardous medical waste, so it can be recycled and disposed of properly.
Due to its potentially harmful nature and hazardous properties, highly infectious waste is disposed of by incineration.
You also have a legal and ethical responsibility to store and dispose of all highly infectious and hazardous clinical waste in a safe and appropriate manner. This includes using the correct hazardous waste bags and bins to keep such waste on your business premises, before arranging collection and disposal.
