The medical, clinical, and healthcare sector produces lots of different forms of waste. Special consideration is needed when dealing with clinical waste, which requires different treatment and disposal methods appropriate to the hazard it may present – offensive, infectious, contaminated with medicines, cytotoxic. Medical and Clinical environments produce varying types of waste, each will have their own end-of-life solutions, each of which Cromwell has a bag that can assist.

Cromwell works closely with the healthcare sector and is an active member of the HWMA (Formally SMDSA) – Healthcare Waste Management Association

We offer a full range of sacks for clinical waste management, from ultra-strong sacks with very high tear resistance to economically priced sacks with high recycled content. Cromwell Polythene’s UN-accredited clinical waste sacks ensure compliance with European legislation for the collection, transport, and disposal of appropriate wastes, as detailed in the European Waste Catalogue (EWC) classification 18 01 – wastes from natal care, diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of disease in humans.

As well as bags for hazardous waste, we also can supply the healthcare industry with bags to collect generic waste or recycling. If you are unsure of which bag is best suited for your waste, you can find a diagram below or contact our team who can try and advise.
