Waste Receptacles, Chemotherapy

Definition : Waste receptacles designed for the collection and storage of cytotoxic materials (e.g., chemotherapy/antineoplastic drugs). These receptacles typically consist of a metal or hard plastic disposable structure, frequently with a disposable (e.g., paper, plastic) liner and/or sealed leakproof bags, and usually separate or attached (e.g., hinged) covers that allow temporary and final closure options. The receptacles usually include gaskets around the covers to prevent leakage and labels (i.e., signs with cytotoxic biohazard symbols) to identify their intended contents. Plastic bags are sometimes used as chemotherapy receptacles. Cytotoxic waste receptacles are used mainly in radiology and nuclear medicine departments and may be used in clinical laboratories and pharmacies for temporary storage before final disposal.
