Clinical Infectious Waste
Orange Clinical Waste Bag

Some forms of waste require more stringent storage solutions than others, particularly if they are considered hazardous to human and animal life. As a result, companies that produce any form of infectious waste must ensure that they use the appropriate waste bags in addition to bins. In this case, clinical/healthcare facilities must ensure that their infectious waste is handled safely and stored separately from the rest of their general waste. In these instances, an orange clinical waste bag is the best solution.

It is advised that clinical infectious waste is stored in bright orange bags to eliminate the chance of these products being thrown in the general waste bin. These bags are made from highly durable materials, which means they are not likely to split or rip when in use. However, it is important that you do not overfill these bags. Once used, they should be stored tied tightly and stored in the appropriate bin or container. While these bags are a great way to enhance your safety procedures, any person who handles this waste must do so with care.
