    I'm not sure the guidance on waste disposal is clear - for example we do use a waste disposal contractor but we have a yellow box with purple lid for minims (cyto unit), a yellow box with blue lid for time expired contact lenses and tonometer probes (pharmibin) - the company didn't seem sure themselves first on what was necessary though!

    This is really interesting and topical – thank you. The thing that surprises me is the number of practices that have just one waste container (Yellow & Green pharmaceutical) for the whole building, then a small stationary bin/pot in each consulting room which gets emptied into the official waste bin periodically. Is this advisable?
