Cytotoxic and Cytostatic
Purple Waste Bags

In order to make waste disposal a breeze, companies must ensure that they are using both the correct waste bags and bins for their waste products. Combined, these storage solutions ensure that your waste is securely managed prior to collection – reducing the chances of cross-contamination occurring or an infection spreading. If you are dealing with any form of Cytotoxic or Cytostatic waste, these products must be stored within a purple waste bag prior to collection.

Collection Frequency:
Daily, weekly, fortnightly or ad hoc collection
1 bags of waste
Waste Type:
  • Clinical

Waste bags are often divided by colour to help the person who is disposing of the waste know what is contained within the bag. Here, the bright purple shade informs the carrier that this waste is potentially hazardous. Furthemore, it also reduces the chances of cross-contamination as it’s clear that waste in purple bags must be placed in bins with a purple lid.

waste bag collection

Our Purple Waste bags can be used to store any form of cytotoxic and cytostatic waste, including:

Blister packs
Medicinal Vials
PPE and disposable garments that have come into contact with Cytotoxic and Cytostatic medicines.

Our Purple Waste bags are made from strong, durable materials – which reduce the chances of these bags breaking or getting damaged during both storage and transit. Due to the hazardous nature of these materials, we advise that you arrange for them to be collected on a weekly basis. However, we can put together a flexible schedule for your waste collection specifically tailored to your company and the volume of waste you produce daily.

If you deal with large volumes of Cytotoxic and Cytostatic waste on a daily basis, we can help you better manage your clinical waste by providing you with access to the appropriate waste containers and bags. Furthemore, we can also help you put together an effective waste management plan. Get in touch today to find out more!
