Purple cytotoxic waste bags for the disposal of cytotoxic and cytostatic waste of the following categories: H6: Toxic; H7: Carcinogenic; H10: Toxic for reproduction; H11: Mutagenic. Healthcare facilities producing cytotoxic and cytostatic waste are required to segregate and dispose of this waste type separately from other clinical and non-clinical waste streams. Waste containers must meet the requirements of DoH guidelines 07-01: Safe Management of Healthcare Waste, comply with the internationally recognised all purple or yellow and purple colour coding and contain no more than 5KG maximum contents weight. Indicative treatment and disposal required is incineration at a suitably permitted or licensed facility.
