To accompany our printed clinical waste ties products, JW Products will now stock clinical waste sacks for the disposal of hospital and medical waste. These waste sacks are primarily used by healthcare and clinical waste collection companies in compliance with European legislation for the collection, transport, and disposal of appropriate wastes from natal care, diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of disease in humans.

All of our heavy duty waste sacks come as standard in yellow and flat packed for incineration disposal. Our clinical waste sacks are printed in alignment with all mandatory regulation and requirements for the sealing of hazardous or infectious waste. These sacks can be ordered along with your order of printed clinical waste ties during online or telephone checkout.

  • Available in yellow for incineration
  • 80L capacity

  • Available in 8kg or 10kg breaking strength
  • Orange clinical sacks for alternative treatments also available.
