Failure to effectively segregate clinical waste means that the entire volume of waste is treated as infectious, and therefore, must be disposed of at a suitably licensed treatment facility, which results in greater disposal costs for your practice. 

The orange bags are intended for heavy duty clinical waste which requires a heat treatment prior to incineration and disposal, unlike yellow bag waste, which just needs to be incinerated. As well as the vibrant yellow and orange colours, the waste bags are clearly marked with this disposal information to ensure your staff can segregate the clinical waste further. 

  • Waste is stored in clearly labelled bags, specifically designed for clinical waste
  • Ensures that you and your practice complies with current waste regulations
  • Excellent quality products supplied by PHS, waste experts and registered waste carrier
