Cytotoxic Waste

SUEZ understands that as cytotoxic substances are destructive to living cells, they should be handled with care at all times and managed accordingly.

What is cytotoxic waste? 

Cytotoxic waste is material or drugs which are carcinogenic, cytostatic, cytotoxic, mutagenic and/or teratogenic. Cytotoxic waste also includes materials associated with the administration of cytotoxins such as needles, syringes, intravenous appliances, ampoules, vials, gauzes, caps, gloves and swabs.


As cytotoxins are powerful substances, all materials involved in cytotoxic treatment should be disposed in the clearly marked purple waste containers. This includes any used IV drops, syringes, vials, ampoules and other containers, as well as swabs, caps and protective equipment.

All cytotoxic waste collected by SUEZ is incinerated as required by law 

Containers and bins to suit your needs

In accordance with national standards, SUEZ can supply and collect cytotoxic waste containers that are clearly labelled and colour coded. 

Various sized purple cytotoxic sharp containers, as well as 120 litre and 240 litre containers for larger collection needs are available.
All purple cytotoxic waste containers are marked with the white cytotoxic symbol representing a cell in late telophase.
