***IMPORTANT NOTICE***

Due to the recent spread of the COVID-19 virus we are experiencing an unprecedented demand for our main stock lines, such as disinfectants, paper disposables and protective workwear. Our suppliers are also restricted on production for these items and have therefore increased lead times.

As a result, products which state "Next Day Delivery" can no longer be guaranteed for next day delivery. We are processing all orders as quickly as possible but please be aware that we are working at approx. 3-5 days for delivery on all orders.

Many thanks for your patience and understanding.

Yellow and black tiger-stripe bags are used for disposal of non-infectious but offensive hygiene waste, sometimes known as ‘sanpro' waste. These tiger stripe bags are 457/736 x 990mm and supplied as a case of 250.

Examples

  • Medical / veterinary items and equipment which do not pose a risk of infection including gowns, plaster casts and outer dressings.
  • Hygiene waste and sanitary protection items such as nappies and incontinence pads
  • Autoclaved laboratory waste
  • Animal faeces and soiled animal bedding

Cost Savings

This waste can be sent to landfill, offering significant cost savings over incineration or other anti-infection alternative treatments. Depending on the contractor, offensive waste disposal costs can be in the region of £180.00 - £220.00 per tonne as compared to £450.00 per tonne for incineration.

Recommendations

Current Department of Health national guidelines (07-01: Safe Management of Healthcare Waste) recommend yellow with black stripe colour-coded bags for offensive waste. Bags used to transport offensive waste for disposal must meet the requirements of the Carriage Regulations (UN Compliant).

These tiger-stripe bags meet or exceed all current guidelines and requirements for the safe storage, transport and disposal of offensive / hygiene waste and are approved for use in all NHS establishments, private hospitals and clinics, care homes, laboratories and veterinary practices.
