Changes to the regulations.
The Environment Agency has ruled that clinical waste (tissue, bodily fluids, pharmaceutical products and anything contaminated with the same which may cause infection to anyone coming into contact with it) may no longer be classified as offensive on the basis of clinical judgement.
This means that all such waste will have to go in yellow bags for incineration.
