Clinical Waste Disposal Bins

Clinical Waste Disposal Bins

Colour coded waste segregation

The correct segregation of clinical waste at the point of generation is a critical element in The Safe Management of Healthcare Waste Memorandum (HTM 07-01). The HTM 07-01 outlines a best practice waste segregation colour coding scheme for producers of hazardous waste to follow.

This segregation is vital to ensure that waste is stored, transported, and ultimately disposed of in the correct manner to maintain compliance with clinical waste regulations.

Clinical Waste Colour Coding Guidelines

The HTM 07-01 recommends that all clinical waste disposal bins and bags are colour coded in this method to provide easy identification and that the clinical waste bins are positioned as close to the point of waste generation as possible.
