Colour Code For BioMedical Waste Management

Biomedical waste is separated into different categories and color-coded for easy identification and proper disposal.

The following color codes are commonly used for biomedical waste:

Red Dustbin

  • It is used to collect biomedical wastes.
  • Used for sharp items such as needles, blades, and broken glass.
  • Yellow bags or containers: Used for pathological waste such as human tissue, organs, and body parts.

Yellow Dustbin

  • Used for pathological waste such as human tissue, organs, and body parts.

Blue Dustbin

  • Broken or discarded and contaminated glass including medicine vials and ampoules except those contaminated with cytotoxic wastes

White Dustbin

  • Waste sharps including Metals: Needles, syringes with fixed needles, needles from needle tip cutters or burners, scalpels, blades, or any other contaminated sharp object that may cause punctures and cuts.
  • This includes both used, discarded, and contaminated metal sharps.

Alternative Biomedical Waste Disposal Methods

There are several alternative methods for disposing of biomedical waste that is being used or researched to minimize the environmental impact of the waste generated, these include:


  • Biomedical waste is burned at high temperatures to sterilize it and reduce its volume.


  • Biomedical waste is exposed to high-pressure steam to sterilize it.

Microwave Irradiation:

  • Biomedical waste is exposed to microwave radiation to sterilize it.

Chemical Disinfection:

  • Biomedical waste is treated with chemicals to sterilize it.


  • Biomedical waste can be recycled, for example, plastics and rubber can be recycled.


  • Biomedical waste is broken down through the process of composting, which can be used as fertilizer.

Energy Recovery:

  • Biomedical waste can be converted into energy through processes such as combustion or gasification.

BioMedical Segregation

  • Segregation refers to the basic separation of different categories of waste generated at the source and thereby reducing the risks as well as the cost of handling and disposal.
  • Segregation is the most crucial step in bio-medical waste management.
  • Effective segregation alone can ensure effective biomedical waste management.
  • Segregation reduces the amount of waste that needs special handling and treatment
  • An effective segregation process prevents the mixture of medical waste like sharps with general municipal waste.

Segregation of biomedical waste in hospitals is the process of separating different types of waste to ensure that they are handled and disposed of properly.

Some common categories of biomedical waste that are typically segregated in hospitals include:

Infectious Waste:

  • This includes items that may be contaminated with blood or other body fluids, such as used needles, scalpels, and dressings.

Pathological Waste:

  • This includes human tissue, organs, and body parts that are removed during medical procedures.

Chemical Waste:

  • This includes hazardous chemicals such as cytotoxic drugs and heavy metals that are used in medical treatments.

Pharmaceutical Waste:

  • This includes expired, unused or unwanted medications and other pharmaceuticals.

Sharps Waste:

  • This includes items that can cause punctures or cuts such as needles, blades, and broken glass.

Non-infectious Waste:

  • This includes paper, plastic, and general trash that does not pose an infection risk.

Radioactive Waste:

  • This includes materials that are contaminated with radioactive substances such as used gloves, gowns, and other protective clothing.
