Anatomical Waste Disposal

Anatomical waste is always considered as potential infectious waste and must be segregated separately from other healthcare waste items.

For human anatomical waste and animal healthcare

Anatomical waste is human or animal tissue or blood, including heavily soaked materials e.g. swabs and dressings.

Anatomical waste management

The red waste stream is used for anatomical waste.

Red-stream waste must be sent for incineration at a suitably authorised facility. Red-lidded containers are used for recognisably anatomical waste items that may be offensive to anyone that could be exposed to them, including body or organ waste tissue and pieces of waste bone.
