Clinical Waste Bags

Clinical waste includes both hazardous and non-hazardous waste, which must be stored and disposed of in accordance with stringent waste regulations. Potentially hazardous substances can cause infection in a healthcare or cosmetic setting if not treated correctly.

To keep your practice safe and legally compliant, our clinical waste bags offer a trusted waste management solution so you can get back to running your healthcare environment.

We provide both orange and yellow clinical waste bags to fit your individual needs, dependent on the types of clinical waste dealt with in your premises. We also supply embossed postcode bag ties to ensure full traceability of each clinical waste bag.

 If you would like to know more about waste segregation and clinical waste bag colours, you can view our Colour Coding Guide which meets NHS guidelines.

New - sustainable clinical waste bags

Initial Medical are accredited to ISO 14001:2015 environmental standards and are focused on delivering sustainable products and operational solutions. Our latest innovation is the introduction of a sustainable waste bag.

Our clinical waste bags now contain 30% recycled plastic, reducing the use of virgin polythene material by 80 tonnes per year! This sustainable goal is shared by our suppliers who use renewable energy in manufacturing and make every effort to ensure CO2 emissions are reduced during transportation. Read more about how our new sustainable clinical waste bag is reducing ours and our customers' carbon footprint.

Our sustainable clinical waste bags comply with the Carriage of Dangerous Good regulations, are approved by the UN, are tested in laboratories approved by UKAS and meet REACH regulations with their print pigment.

Orange Clinical Waste Bags

Our orange clinical waste bags are for the disposal of soft hazardous and non-hazardous waste from patients with either suspected or known infectious diseases, in line with our Colour Coding Guide.

These orange bags can cope with the rigours of a busy healthcare environment and are designed to be extremely sturdy. As a result, our orange bags are resistant to potential tears and breaks from impact, keeping your healthcare environment safe from clinical waste spills.

Yellow Clinical Waste Bags

If your healthcare environment deals with category A pathogens, you will need yellow clinical waste bags. These bags are designated for the disposal of waste containing or suspected to contain the most dangerous of pathogens, as well as medicinally contaminated waste, in line with the Colour Coding Guide.

Like our orange clinical waste bags, our yellow clinical waste bags are also resistant to tears and impact.

Postcoded Bag Ties

Ensure that your waste bags are fully traceable from the point of collection with our postcode-embossed bag ties. By doing so, you are able to prove that you are complying with waste legislation during the carriage and disposal of your healthcare waste.

These bag ties will keep your bags tightly secure during transportation, ensuring no spillage of clinical waste from the opening.

The last thing you need is to run out of bag ties frequently. Our bag ties come in packs of 1,000 to ensure a long-lasting supply.
