All waste of a biological nature must be disposed of appropriately according to regulations and local rules.
NB. More general information on all types of waste disposal in BCRE can be found in the guidance document 'Waste and You'
All GM waste (generated from work with GM organisms or from GM tissues) also follows the 'Yellow Box SOP & Risk Assessment' disposal route, but due to regulation this waste must be tracked from 'cradle to grave'(a specifically identified and traceable route for the waste from creation to destruction).
Hence for BCRE, as detailed in the SOP, all Yellow Boxes containing GM waste must be labelled with stickers identifying the source of the waste and the appropriate GM risk assessment reference. (Stickers are provided by the technical team - please request stickers for your work).
Human Tissue / Blood product or Primary Human Tissue culture Waste
All waste of a clinical nature (waste generated from work with Human Tissue, Blood products or tissue culture using primary human cells / tissues) must follow the 'Clinical Waste' route. For BCRE follow the 'BCRE Clinical Waste SOP', for the BMRC please contact the laboratory co-ordinator for details.
