What is Cytotoxic Waste?
Cytotoxins are the most hazardous of the pharmaceutical wastes. They are capable of impairing, injuring, or killing cells and many have a direct irritant effect upon skin, eyes, mucous membranes, and other tissue. They can cause local toxic and/or allergic reactions.
They need to be handled extremely carefully as even exceedingly small quantities can be hazardous to human contact. These wastes have special handling, packaging, and disposal requirements. Cytotoxic waste must be packaged inside, puncture resistant, leak proof purple containers. All cytotoxic waste, including contaminated sharps, must be segregated, and identified by colour.
