2. Substances used to dispose of bodily secretions, urine and/or faeces;
3. Human or animal tissue, blood, soiled surgical dressings, Waste from Dialysis treatment, material from infectious disease and cases animal carcasses;
4. Microbiological cultures;
5. Drugs or other Pharmaceutical products.

It is a legal requirement now for Clinical waste to be disposed of in orange waste bags, so as to ensure that such waste does not get mixed-up with domestic waste collection .

As the infectious nature of some types of clinical waste, it is classified as ‘hazardous waste’ under UK & EU law and therefore requires safe disposal as commensurate to the level of risk. In most cases suitable disposal means heat treatment prior to landfill or incineration.
