Stoma bags

Stoma bags go in your general waste bin or clinical waste bin.

You can also put them in the non-recyclable waste container at a recycling centre.

When emptying a stoma bag, pour the faeces and urine down the toilet. The best way to dispose of a stoma bag is to rinse it after emptying and wrap it in a plastic bag.

Some councils provide a home collection service for clinical waste – check with your local council.
